Sony Z Ultra Google Play Edition gets a major price cut of $200

Sony fans looking for a great deal on a high-end Xperia phone should be pleased to know that the Z Ultra Google Play Edition phablet has been given a major price cut. From the normal price of $649, the device is now selling for $449 after the reduction, making it $200 cheaper which makes a huge difference.

The original model is still retailing for $629.99 through the company’s online store, while the LTE variant costs even more at $649.99, so why the special treatment for the Sony Z Ultra Google Play Edition? There’s no specific reason behind the price cut and we’re not likely to see the other models go down the same road anytime soon. As a side note, Sony has also launched the Z Ultra as a Wi-Fi only mini tablet in Japan.
