Sony Xperia 1 goes up for preorder on Amazon for $1,000

The company's new flagship phone now has a price.

Sarah Tew/CNET

If you've been eagerly anticipating Sony's recently announced flagship phone, the Xperia 1, your chance to click "preorder now" on Amazon is here -- though not if you were expecting it at a lower price than $1,000.

The new Galaxy S10 is $900, so $1,000 is relatively competitive for a flagship these days, but possibly not for a phone that we've said on first look is "at best, entirely forgettable." We're yet to review the Xperia 1 in full.

We spotted the news via 9to5Google, which also pointed out that Amazon's availability date of December 2019 is probably incorrect, since the phone's expected around June. 

The Xperia 1 is yet to appear on Amazon in the UK or Australia, though you can preregister your interest direct with Sony in the UK. $1,000 converts to about £760 or AU$1,410.
