Sony seems to finally be making somewhat of an effort stateside, having put the Xperia XZ2 and XZ2 Compact up for pre-order here around three months ago. Now that it's ditched the side-mounted fingerprint sensor design, there are even functional fingerprint sensors here in the US! B&H is currently offering the XZ2 for $649.99 and the XZ2 Compact for $569.99, equating to a $150 and $80 discount, respectively.

Google originally debuted Lens in Google Photos for select devices, but it didn't get much use there.

[Update: Now available] Sony Xperia XZ2 and XZ2 Compact now up for pre-order in the US

The Xperia XZ2 and XZ2 Compact are arguably Sony's best-looking phones yet. Unveiled at Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Barcelona in February, the latest Sony flagships have rear fingerprint sensors and sport 18:9 displays with far less bezel than we're accustomed to from Xperia devices. They both include the freshest Snapdragon 845 chip with 4GB of RAM and will ship with Android 8.0 Oreo.

I was impressed by them in my hands-on at MWC, especially in view of Sony finally embracing a more modern design aesthetic — even if the Compact is a little chunky. Sony doesn't usually concentrate on the US market too much, but we learned a couple of days ago that Best Buy would have both phones available to pre-order from today, and both are now live on the site in a range of different colors.

The Xperia XZ2 and XZ2 Compact are still obviously Sony hardware, but they adopt an 18:9 screen ratio and a rear fingerprint sensor. The high price is still classic Sony, though.

Today at MWC 2018 in Barcelona Sony announced its latest flagship Android phones, the Xperia XZ2 and XZ2 Compact. Looking at them without context, you'd be forgiven for thinking they were released a couple of years ago. Yet these are Sony's most modern smartphone designs ever, with curved 3D glass and much smaller bezels than previous Xperia devices.

Sony announces Xperia XZ2 and XZ2 Compact with 18:9 displays, Snapdragon 845, and refined design

We knew Sony's devices would be in for a little design refresh at this year's MWC and now the rumor mill can be put to rest after Sony lifted the veil off its new Xperia XZ2 and XZ2 Compact. The new phones look exactly like the leaked renders and have a distinct Sony vibe to them with the still large bezels on the top and bottom, but with rounded corners, 3D glass and aluminum frame, and a curved back that bulges significantly on both devices, but especially so on the Compact.
