Sony Xperia 1 II now available in the US for $1,198, bundled with WF-1000XM3 buds

Sony Xperia 1 II now available in the US for $1,198, bundled with WF-1000XM3 buds

There are a few unusual things about the Xperia 1 II, including the super-tall display and the stupid name, but arguably the most unusual thing is the price. Back when B&H first put the One-Two up for pre-order, we were amazed at that $1,198 price, and thought that Sony might be reconsidering the price when the number was taken down. However, Sony confirmed that price a few days later, though it did mention it'd be throwing in a free pair of WF-1000XM3s for pre-orders.

Sony may have suspended Android 10's rollout to the Xperia XZ3 and XZ2 due to numerous major bugs

Sony is having a hard time in the smartphone business amidst declining sales and shrinking market share, but its users are likely more distressed right now. Many existing Sony users found that the recent Android 10 update broke their 2018 flagships almost universally, with no official communication from the company. In what appears to be a widespread issue, the affected Xperia XZ3 and XZ2 owners rallied on community platforms like Reddit complaining about a long list of bugs, including terrible RAM management, high battery consumption, app fails, and a generally sluggish UI.

The Sony Xperia 1 ships on July 12 in the US, still costs way too much money

The Xperia 1 is Sony's new flagship smartphone.

Sony’s smartphone shipments dropped 50% last year

[Update: Mass job cuts expected] Sony to merge all consumer electronics divisions after mobile loses nearly a billion dollars in a year

Two days ago, Sony revealed a drastic change in its business organization going forward. Sony's Mobile Communications division — responsible for the Xperia line of phones — will be merged with the Imaging Products & Solutions and Home Entertainment & Sound divisions. This "realignment" unifies all of Sony's consumer electronics branches under a single internal division, while conveniently hiding the mobile division's future losses behind a merged balance sheet. That's good for Sony, because according to today's exchange rate, the company has lost over $910 million in the last year making phones.

Sony Xperia XZ2 Premium falls to $650 ($250 off) at Amazon, B&H, and Focus Camera

The Xperia XZ2 Premium debuted with an MSRP of $1,000. Predictably, that hasn't worked out well for Sony. Luckily, as any phone tends to do after some time, the price has dropped to a much more palatable $649.99, which is $350 less than the launch price and $250 under current MSRP, from Amazon, B&H, and Focus Camera.
