Well to answer my own question, I've now had it confirmed that the XZs will not be released in the UK, or Europe for that matter.
I sent an email to a uk based online retailer asking for availability details, they responded saying that they had been provided information by Sony Mobile stating there were no plans as yet for a release in this region, and that as of now only the XZ Premium and the XA1 are confirmed as coming to the UK.
As someone who liked the idea of having an XZ with an improved camera (as I'm not happy with it on the standard XZ) I must say I'm disappointed a little.
A camera bump on an Xperia phone? Dissapointed. Not worth a single gimmick. It's basically an XZ with slowmo.

I agree with with you, that irony when Sony supply many sensor then other beat them. But in real life Sony cam performance is great, I'm using S7, XZ, mi 5 and all to work, no fans at all. Buy one for working purpose.
sohail shafayat, 28 Feb 2017I never found Sony in top 5 cameras, xperia XZs is also a mediocreCheck out dxo reviews and ratings.
Do you have an XZs that you reviewed?
Rass, 28 Feb 2017Is it real, that its with 960fps camera or it's a mistake?On 720p resolution only I think

Rass, 28 Feb 2017Is it real, that its with 960fps camera or it's a mistake?Its not mistake, it can record 960 fps slow motion videos :D
The more I look into this the more I getting the idea that the XZS is going to be a market specific device.
For instance, I can find nothing to say it's going to be released in the U.K. Both the Carphone Warehouse and Sony own U.K. Mobile site only list pre-registration pages for the XZP and XA1, neither make any mention of the XZS anywhere.
Anyone else seeing anything different?

consumersmartphone, 28 Feb 2017Yes we need better and better, price will rise and grow! But what matters is: spec to price, p... moreXZs is comparable to S6, now you compare the specs and price. We have seen XZ's and other Xperia flagship's camera performance, they were never in a top 5. How many examples do you need?
sohail shafayat, 28 Feb 2017I never found Sony in top 5 cameras, xperia XZs is also a mediocreLol, where are you searching, go to Dxomark, Sony has the second place after the Google pixel xl directly until now, please get your facts right.

But what matters is: spec to price, price to performance, price to status = OP to Xiaomi, Samsung (flagship) to Sony, iPhone to iPhone.
