Analysts estimate Sony sold 4.6 million Xperia Z phones in 40 days

16 April, 2013

The Sony Xperia Z got the jump on other 1080p flagships and itís paying off handsomely. The water-resistant phone was announced and went on sale before its chief competition and analysts are estimating Sony has sold 4.6 million units sold in 40 days.

The HTC One experienced delays and its launched got pushed back, while the LG Optimus G Pro launched this month and the Samsung Galaxy S4 launch is coming in a couple of weeks. That left the Xperia Z with very little competition on the 1080p / quad-core front.

The HTC Butterfly was the first 1080p phone to hit the market, but it didnít get a wide launch or a lot of love from HTC before the One was announced.

Well, weíll have to wait until the Q1 report is out to get concrete numbers from Sony.
