Sony Xperia X

The Sony Xperia X has gotten yet another price cut, bringing the cost of the phone down by a considerable Rs 14000. The handset is currently selling at Rs 24990 via Flipkart. It appears to be a temporary cut since the listing mentions that the deal is valid until stocks last or till the offer ends.

To recall, Sony had introduced the Xperia X last February at the MWC 2016. The device landed in India 3 months later at Rs 48990. It immediately became the recipient of a Rs 2000 discount. The company later extended this cut to Rs 10000 in September 2016, vending the smartphone at Rs 38990 officially.

All-in-all, the Xperia X’s cost has fallen by Rs 24000 since its arrival in India. The handset itself was beset by a controversy involving its camera not long after its international release. It reportedly heated up when recording video and crashed when temperatures became too extreme.
