Sony Xperia Z3 Plus now on sale at Carphone Warehouse
There was a fair amount of questioning when the Sony Xperia Z4 was announced and we heard it would only be available for the market in Japan. However, we soon learned that an international variant would be launched as the Sony Xperia Z3 Plus (aka Z3+) and this was handset was made official in late May. If you’ve been waiting for this phone to release in the UK you may be pleased to hear that the Sony Xperia Z3 Plus is now on sale at Carphone Warehouse.
The giant retailer is the first in the UK to offer the Z3 Plus although it’s likely to be on sale with other retailers soon. The handset is on sale in black or white colours and also an ice green model that is an exclusive for Carphone Warehouse. The copper coloured Z3 Plus isn’t available at Carphone Warehouse so may be an exclusive for a different retailer.
You can buy the Sony Xperia Z3 Plus from Carphone Warehouse SIM-free for Â£550. Alternatively various tariffs are available, for example if you don’t want to pay anything upfront you can get the phone on contract at Â£40 per month. That plan is on Vodafone and will get you unlimited texts and minutes and 2GB of 4G data per month. On another contract plan you can pay Â£59.99 upfront and then Â£34.99 monthly.

Clove UK will also be offering the Sony Xperia Z3 Plus with stocks expected from June 22.
