Sony’s top-end Xperia XZ handset has reportedly gotten a price cut in India. The handset is now listed on the company’s official website with an MRP of Rs. 41,990, which is Rs. 8,000 smaller than the launch price.
To recall, the handset was put up for sale in India back in last year’s October and was priced at Rs. 49,990 though it carried an MRP of Rs. 51,990 at the time of launch. Rather unfortunate, there is no evidence to determine whether or not the price cut is permanent.
Furthermore, Amazon India, which is one of Sony’s exclusive online partner is now retailing the Sony Xperia XZ, at an even lower price of Rs. 39,990.
The main highlight of the Xperia XZ is its three rear camera sensors. According to Sony, the CMOS sensor was designed to track and predict the movement of objects in a frame, thereby reducing the chances of blurred photo shoots.
The handset also comes with a laser autofocus sensor that makes the camera better at locking focus on objects, especially in low-light conditions. Also, the RGBC-IR sensor of the camera module aims to provide accurate colour reproduction.
The handset also comes with a f/2.0 Sony G lens, a 23-megapixel Exmor RS sensor as well as Sony’s own ‘Bionz for mobile’ image processor. Users can now also get manual control over focusing and shutter speed.
The smartphone also features a 13-megapixel wide-angle front camera and comes with IP68 dust and water resistant feature.
In line with specs, the Xperia XZ sports a 5.2-inch full-HD display with Corning Gorilla Glass 4 for protection. The handset also comes with a Snapdragon 820 processor paired with 3GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. The phone features a USB Type-C connectivity and houses a 2900mAh battery.
