The UK retailer, Clove, has announced it is now possible to order the Xperia Z5 Premium handset from its online store, with orders scheduled to begin shipping from November 13. Clove is holding a promotion where each order will receive a headset and a Bluetooth speaker bundled in with the purchase.
After just a week of pre-orders, the LG G4 is now available in the United Kingdom, and can be bought through Carphone Warehouse and Clove.
Sony launched the Xperia Z4 in Japan just over a month ago and it was a low-key affair and we wondered if this ‘successor’ to the Xperia Z3 would be released globally. Yesterday Sony announced that this ‘Xperia Z4‘ would, in fact, be marketed as the Xperia Z3+ outside of Japan, with the handset becoming available from June 15th. Now we have news that Sony’s latest flagship is already available for pre-order in the UK.
For the past four months, Sony held exclusivity over the green model of the Xperia Z3 Compact — meaning if you wanted to pick one up, you had to purchase the phone directly from the manufacturer itself. Thankfully, that’s no longer the case. Online technology retailer, Clove, has today announced that it too has “received stock of the green variant and is now able to sell the SIM free version in the UK for the first time”.
For those in the UK who are waiting on the Galaxy Note Edge to become available for pre-order, Clove has you covered. The online retailer currently has the curved hybrid on its web site available for pre-order. The device, as expected, costs a fair amount with Clove asking for £650 (roughly $1,055) with VAT included and £541.67 (roughly $849) without. This makes the concept device a bit more expensive than the Note 4 as it goes for £575 (roughly $933) with VAT. This is expected as the device is considered to be a niche device.
On the plus side, with the device going up for pre-order in the UK, it’s only short matter of time before it does in the US as well. We’ll let you know when and where it does. Stay tuned!
Yesterday’s big LG G3 announcement did lack a few details on pricing and availability, but we finally have a little more info for you. Clove in the UK has started pre-orders for the G3 at £499 for the 2GB RAM/16GB storage version, which is pretty darn good. However, shipments won’t start until July 1. You will have your choice of Metallic Black, Silk White, or Shine Gold. Who is jumping in?

Sony announced the Xperia Z2 back in February, and a few weeks ago, Sony halted the pre-order of the SIM-free Xperia Z2, and later said the device will still launch on April 11 as planned.
Sony U.K has now announced that the device will be launched in May. The reason behind the delay is unknown, but previous rumors suggest that the company was facing troubles with one of its suppliers. Read more
Samsung officially unveiled its Galaxy S 5 flagship at the MWC 2014 earlier this week. The device comes with some new features such as heart sensor and fingerprint sensor and has got a slightly similar look to its predecessor.
Samsung hasn’t yet announced the price tag for the Galaxy S 5 however, if you’re living in the UK, you’ll be glad to find out that a UK-based retailer, Clove, has started taking pre-orders for the Galaxy S 5 and has priced the 16GB model at £499.99 (£599.99 after taxes) which will cost $1,000. Unfortunately, there’s no information how much the 32GB will cost.
Preorders are a natural part of a phone’s prerelease cycle, and they generally mean the phone’s availability is right around the corner. We’ve already seen a few carriers start accepting sign-ups for information for the device, but the first company to actually accept a preorder is Clove UK. The 16 GB model will be going for £390, or £468 including VAT. That comes out to $602.08, or $722.50 with VAT. It’s definitely not cheap, but we’ve seen higher on some of these phones. First availability of stock is suggest to be in September, but that can obviously change as we get closer to the actual release date. We’ll be sure to keep you updated as soon as anything else comes up.
Originally, Clove in the UK listed Sony’s brand new smartwatch with a July 15th availability despite Sony saying the smartwatch would be available later in the year. Now Clove has moved that July 15th date back a few weeks to September 9th, claiming the original information they received from Sony was incorrect. It’s kind of a “he said, she said” situation, but at least that gives everyone a little more time to preorder the device. And anyone on the fence about preordering one will definitely have a better look at the smartwatch at IFA, which is that same week that the device is slated to go on sale.
