Sony Xperia Ear on pre-order in the UAE from January 1

Sony's in-ear intelligent assistant lets you listen and reply to messages, hands- and screen-free

Sony Xperia Ear

The much-anticipated Sony Xperia Ear is now available for pre-order in the UAE. First announced at IFA in Berlin this past summer, the device is the Japanese tech brand’s intelligent personal assistant. 

The Ear can be booked exclusively on the Techmall online store for Dh799 from January 1. Pre-bookers get a Dh100 voucher eligible to be spent on Sony accessories on the site. 

Powered by the adaptive Sony Agent Technology platform, Xperia Ear responds to verbal commands, so you can ask it to make a call, perform a Google search, dictate a message or navigate to a certain location.

The Ear reads out incoming texts, WhatsApp or Facebook messages and allows you to initiate a response with a nod of the head, before replying with your voice.

If you’re willing to wait a couple more weeks form January 1, the Xperia Ear will be available in Sony Boutique (Dubai Mall), Sharaf DG (Times Square), Jumbo Electronics (Mall of the Emirates) and at Dubai Duty Free for Dh799.
