Sony Xperia 1 VI pre-orders in Taiwan are 50% up compared to the Xperia 1 V pre-orders last year

Peter, 27 May 2024

The Sony Xperia 1 VI is off to a strong start in Taiwan where pre-orders for the new model surpassed those for the 2023 flagship by 50% – this info comes from the General Manager of Sony Taiwan Tomotaka Tsutsusushio.

Pre-orders started on the 23rd and had a perk – a free upgrade from the 256GB model to the 512GB model, plus a 2-month subscription to music streaming service KKBOX (with lossless audio). Local prices have the 256GB Xperia 1 VI at NTD 40,000 and the 512GB one at NTD 44,000 (this converts to USD 1,245 and USD 1,370, respectively).

The pre-orders ended today, but there are still some perks to be had before the proper launch (shipping is expected to start on the 31st). If you buy the phone from a Sony store, you will get NTD 1,000 credit to spend on accessories, NTD 2,000 if you go for the 512GB model (which is now a paid upgrade).

Remember that leaked red color, which isn’t part of the global colorways for the Xperia 1 VI? Well, it’s a region exclusive and it is highly popular with local buyers - it has eclipsed the other three options in terms of demand. Not surprising, it’s a great color and the other options are a bit dull.

While Taiwan got the Sony Xperia 1 VI early, other regions are still waiting – Europeans will have to wait until early June, for example. But once it does launch, it will be interesting to see if the Mark 6 beats the Mark 5 by a similar margin on the Old Continent.

Thanks for the tip, Josip!
