As someone who used to work at Best Buy, I always loved seeing some of the latest tech hit the shelves of our store.

For a geek like myself that was like having a Tech Holiday every week!

I miss those days of talking about the new stuff with my fellow employees but luckily I get the chance every once in a while to see some of the news up close like today.

Right now you can head into your local Best Buy and see the latest pieces of mobile technology that are arriving on store shelves from Sony and their Xperia brand in the form of two unlocked phones – the Xperia Premium and Ultra models.

Sony Xperia Ultra

This handset sports a 6 inch borderless display with an edge-to-edge Full HD display to give you the best possible viewing experience when you are mobile.

The main camera is 23 MP, previously reserved for Sony’s flagship devices in fact, and then the 16 MP front facing camera includes a 23mm wide-angle lens to get the entire shot in the frame.

Do not go looking for this model anywhere other then Best Buy though because it is not available anywhere else.

Sony Xperia Premium

The Ultra brings some pretty impressive specs but wait until you see what the Premium version has in store for you:

  • A stellar 4K HDR Display that is the first of its kind for a smartphone
  • A 19 MP camera that comes with the world’s first ever Motion Eye camera system. It features Predictive Capture to make sure you get the exact shot you are looking for. In addition, the Super Slow Motion features grabs video like no other smartphone is capable of doing.
  • With the Qualcomm SnapDragon 835 Processor, the Xperia Premium has the performance capabilities for creating Super Slow Motion videos, watching the latest 4K HDR videos, or even playing your favorite PlayStation games using PS4 Remote Play.
  • Just like the Ultra model, the Xperia Premium is also available at Best Buy.

Both of these phones work with these major carriers in the United States – AT&T, Verizon, and Cricket.
