Sony debuted its latest handsets back at IFA and now the duo will soon debut in the US. The flagship Xperia XZ is slated to arrive October 2nd at Amazon, Best Buy and other retailers. Priced at $700 unlocked, the unlocked model supports GSM networks while packing in a 5.2-inch 1080p display, Snapdragon 820, 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage that can be expanded via a microSD slot. The XZ also has a USB-C port to keep up with the times and features like 4K video and enhanced image stabilization for its 23-megapixel camera. It's also IP65/IP68 dust-tight and water resistant for added protection from the elements and any unforeseen accidents.

The mid-range Xperia X Compact will go on sale September 25th in the States, a few weeks after making its debut in the UK. A smaller 4.6-inch device, the X Compact is priced at $500 unlocked with a 720p display and the same 32GB of storage, a microSD card slot and a USB Type-C jack as the Xperia XZ. The GSM-compatible X Compact also touts that 5-axis video stabilization that Sony offers on the larger phone. All of features are driven by a Snapdragon 650 chipset alongside 3GB of RAM and an Adreno 510 GPU. And yes, the same 23-megapixel camera that's on the XZ is here as well. If you can't wait an extra week for the XZ, the X Compact still offers some of the same features as its bigger and pricier companion.
