Australia's four largest telcos will stock Sony's Xperia Z3 flagship, while Optus and Telstra will sell the Z3 Compact when it goes on sale later today.

Undercutting Optus, Telstra and Vodafone on pricing with the Xperia Z3 is Virgin Mobile, which is selling the smartphone at $5 per month on its $60 plan.

Virgin's $60 plan offers $700 in national call value and 4GB of included data per month. Those who sign up before 19 October will received an additional 2GB of data per month.

The first 100 people to preorder a Sony Xperia Z3 from Virgin Mobile will receive a PlayStation 4 console as a bonus. Pre-orders open at 9am.

Following Virgin Mobile is Optus and Vodafone, while Telstra's hero pricing for the Xperia Z3 is the most expensive at $10 on its $70 plan.

Sony's Xperia Z3 Compact will go on sale today from Optus and Telstra alone. Optus is selling the smartphone for $10 on its $50 plan per month, while Telstra is offering it at $3 on its $70 plan per month.

None of the carriers have announced 12 month plan pricing. The pricing above are all over 24 month contracts.

Sony is selling the Xperia Z3 outright for $849, while the well equipped Z3 Compact will be available for $699.
