Early last week Bell announced plans to exclusively launch the Sony Xperia Z “later this month.” This will be available in all three glorious colours (black, white and purple) and while they didn’t give a specific date, the contest page hinted its potential release of July 30th. We can now confirm this date to be the official launch day. The no-term pricing will be around $650 outright.

For a refresher of specs, the Xperia Z has a 5-inch 1080 x 1920p display, 1.5GHz quad-core Snapdragon processor, 13MP camera with Exmor RS for mobile, 2GB RAM, 16GB internal storage and a 2330mAh non-removable battery. We’ve had some hands-on time with the Xperia Z in January at CES 2013 and it’s by far the nicest smartphone Sony has ever created – check it out here.

(Thanks tipster!)

    We are spoiled for specs that’s why. It is fantastic still

    The snapdragon 600 first appeared on the market in March. The Xperia Z was initially released 2nd week of February. Sony has never, ever, been first to market with a new benchmark SoC so we can hardly fault them for launching the Z without the 600 chipset.

    That being said, if this phone launched with the SD 600, we would’ve heard more word of mouth about it than the HTC ONE or LG Optimus G. I think their design is stunning though, this phone looks like a work of art in person.

    Amen to your second paragraph, Sony has positioned themselves very well for the holiday season. Bring on the i1 and Z Ultra!

    I care. and last I checked, mine and everyone else’s opinion matters more than yours.
