$0 down and $22 per month for the phone, or $528 outright
Right on schedule, the Sony Xperia Z1 slaunches today on T-Mobile in the U.S. Sony’s latest handset costs $528 outright, which is split into 24 payments of $22 per month. As usual with T-Mo it’s $0 down, and you pay for your service on top of the monthly device fee, so you’re looking at total bills starting at $72 per month for 500MB, rising to $92 per month for unlimited data.
The Xperia Z1s is essentially an Xperia Z1tweaked for T-Mobile, with a lighter plastic frame, some minor external differences and 32 gigabytes of storage versus the Z1’s 16. It’s powered by the same Snapdragon 800 processor as its international cousin, with 2 gigabytes of RAM, a 1080p “Triluminos” display and a 20.7-megapixel Exmor RS camera.
