Sony has just confirmed with us that users who purchase the Sony Xperia Z1 in Singapore will get a free six movie download offer, one of which will be the sci-fi movie Elysium from Sony Pictures.
The new flagship from Sony will be available in Singapore from October, and owners will get the movie offer in November. Sony says that the downloads will be made via an app, and that movies can be streamed to a TV using Mirrorcast or via a mini-HDMI out. More details will be made available closer to launch.
The device will be priced at $998 without contract and will be available from Oct 4. Local telcos SingTel, Starhub and M1 are keeping mum about the contract prices as of now.
This powerful device will be packing a 5″ Full HD screen, a quad-core Snapdragon S800 processor and 2 GB of RAM. The main selling point is the IP58 certification, which means that this phone is waterproof, shockproof, and dustproof. To read more about the Z1, check out our preview here.
