Today Best Buy has started taking pre-orders for the unlocked Sony Xperia XZ Premium smartphone, just as expected. The Japanese company's latest flagship device can be yours for $799.99, and the retailer is offering it in three color versions: Deepsea Black, Luminous Chrome, and Bronze Pink.
If you pre-order, you should expect the device to reach your doorstep by June 19. Alternatively you can opt for in-store pickup, in which case it should be at your nearest Best Buy location by June 18.
As usual when it comes to Sony handsets sold in the US, this one comes without a usable fingerprint sensor out of the box too. A few months ago we found out that the unlikely explanation for this situation might be that the company is legally required to disable the fingerprint scanners for its US phones, believe it or not. So if you want biometric security in your smartphone, you're probably not going to buy the Xperia XZ Premium.
its due to some verizon thing they got screwed over by. The contract will expire in 2018 its not like sony doesnt want to sell the phones with FP scanner.
Yeah sure, not even fingerprint scanner, wake up, there is dozens of better phones than this fiasco
This is ridiculous, 2017 flagship smartphone without fingerprint scanner, what is the point to sell at all, Sony fail so hardly, can't even sort it out this situation, if I would be a boss I just fire some managers responsible for this stupid fingerp...
