Sony Xperia XZ Premium pre-orders are live and it comes with freebies

The Sony Xperia XZ Premium won’t hit stores until June 2, but you can pre-order it now and get free headphones or speakers thrown in too.

At Carphone Warehouse you can grab it from £39 per month with no upfront cost, and this is the only place that stocks the XZ Premium in chrome.

But if you want a freebie you’ll have to go elsewhere. Sony’s official website has the phone up for pre-order, and if you grab it there you’ll get a free set of high-resolution, digital noise cancelling Sony MDR-NC750 headphones.

Meanwhile, pre-orders from A1 Comms, Amazon, Argos, Clove, MPD, Shop Direct (Very and Littlewoods), Sure or Unlocked Mobile will get you a free Sony XB-20 speaker while stocks last.

Pricey but powerful

The Sony Xperia XZ Premium costs £649 SIM-free, which is a hefty price, but then you’re getting a lot of tech for your money, including a 4K screen, a Snapdragon 835 chipset, a glossy mirrored finish and a 19MP camera with impressive slow-motion skills.

That said, we haven’t yet put the XZ Premium through a full review, and things like the battery life and day-to-day usability of the camera remain unclear, so you might want to hold off until we’ve given our final verdict.
