Sony Xperia XZ gets a massive price cut

Sony Xperia XZ

The Sony Xperia XZ was an expensive proposition at its launch last year, selling for a premium Rs 51990. Now it appears the company has decided to make the handset a bit more affordable by granting it a significant Rs 8000 price cut.

Sony hasn’t said anything official about whether or not the drop is a limited-period deal or a permanent cut. The new Rs 41990 cost is currently listed on the brand’s site, lending it an air of legitimacy. The company’s online partner Amazon is retailing the handset for an even lower Rs 39636 right now.

The Sony phone came to the country in September last year. It’s since been succeeded by the XZ Premium which made its debut last month at the MWC 2017. The cheaper cost makes sense in light of that, but there’s no indication that the brand plans to release the sequel in India anytime soon.

The Xperia XZ’s claim to fame is its 23MP triple sensor camera. The module boasts of an Exmor RS image sensor, RGBC-IR sensor, and laser autofocus sensor. All combined apparently ensure blur-free images, better low-light photos, and accurate color reproduction.
