Sony Xperia Z5 available for purchase in Hong Kong and Singapore
Sony has commenced a wider global rollout of its new Xperia Z5 flagship. The Qualcomm Snapdragon 810-powered smartphone was announced during the 2015 IFA tradeshow in Berlin earlier this month. The Sony Xperia Z5 is now available on preorder in two new Asian markets: Singapore and Hong Kong.
In Hong Kong, Sony is offering the Xperia Z5 as well as its smaller Xperia Z5 Compact sibling on sale. The latter will set you back HK $4,798 (roughly about US $620) while the Sony Xperia Z5 is bundled with a price tag of HK $5,698 (US $735).
Further down in the South, Sony Singapore is accepting orders for the Xperia Z5 where one unit of the Android 5.1-running smartphone costs SG $998 (US $700). The Xperia Z5 Compact will be missing in action in Singapore for now but there’s no mention of the availability of the much higher end Xperia Z5 Premium for both countries.
Sony says shipping for the Hong Kong preorders will begin by October 7 while customers in Singapore will start getting their phones by October 11.
