Sony Xperia X Performance will in fact make it to the UK in mid-July priced at £549

The controversy regarding the Sony Xperia X Performance’s presence in the UK (or lack thereof) has been put to rest today. The confusion (and anger for some Sony fans) all started back when the company announced that the top of the line member of the new X familywouldn’t make it to the UK and Germany, with absolutely no reasoning given.

Then some time later the company changed its tune, saying it won’t sell the phone direct to consumers in the UK, but might offer it through certain third party retail partners.

And today this has been confirmed by one of those partners – Clove. This online retailer has started taking pre-orders for the Xperia X Performance, with deliveries expected to start in mid-July (which lines up with the handset’s release time frames elsewhere). The price you need to pay for Sony’s latest and greatest is £549.
