Sony Xperia Z bath-friendly 13MP flagship smartphone on Three network

Sony Xperia Z - a big bad beaut of an Android phone with 5-inch display, HDR video and Quad-Core CPU

Sony’s rather fabulous top-of-the-line Sony Xperia Z smartphone is about to start rolling into the UK, and is now available on pre-order on the Three network.


The swishy Android-powered handset will be available on Three from the 28th February for £34 a month with an upfront cost of £69 on the Ultimate Internet 500 plan, or £36 a month with an upfront cost of £69 on The One Plan.

Both plans come with a guarantee of ‘no surprise out-of-bundle data charges’ and All- You-Can-Eat data.

If you’re the kind of wild-eyed loner that doesn’t want to be shackled by contracts with The Man, the Sony Xperia X  can be picked up from Three for £449.99 on Pay As You Go.

The full press release blurb is below, you can view the pre-order page here, and you can find out more about the phone here.

Sony Xperia™ Z – available for pre-order on Three.

The Sony Xperia™ Z, Sony’s innovative smartphone, is now available
for pre-order on Three.

Xperia™ Z brings together the best of Sony’s technology, design
and connectivity to deliver a precision engineered full HD smartphone.
The phone is smart, sleek and durable with a reflective glass surface
and is resistance to dust and water which means it’s perfect for
taking photos in the rain or texting from the bath!

The 5” full HD display has a Mobile BRAVIA® Engine 2 which
automatically optimises images so they’re sharper and brighter so
you’ll get the best in contrast and colour management.

Xperia™ Z also offers more intelligent battery management with
Battery STAMINA Mode so your phone lasts even longer. It knows when
your screen is off, shuts down the battery-draining apps you don’t
need and then starts them up again when the screen is back on.
Combined with the powerful 1.5GHz quad-core processor means you have a
top performing smartphone which won’t let you down.

Sylvia Chind, Head of Devices at Three, said, “We’re extremely
pleased to offer the Xperia Z for pre-order from the 1st February and
