Sony has announced a price cut for its Xperia X and Xperia Z5 Premium smartphones. Sony has slashed the price of Xperia X by Rs 10,000 while Xperia Z5 Premium is now cheaper by Rs 8,000.
Post this price cut (which is applicable from September 1), Xperia X now retails for Rs 38,990 while the Z5 Premium has now an official price tag of Rs 47,990. At the time of launch in May 2016, the Xperia X had an MRP of Rs 48,990 while the Xperia Z5 Premium was available for Rs 55,990.
The price revision was expected as Sony has just revealed two new flagship handsets- Xperia XZ and X Compact. And we are now expecting Sony to announce these latest flagships for the Indian market. Another reason for the latest price cut could be their non-performance in the Indian market.
The Sony Xperia X has a 5 inch Triluminous display featuring full HD resolution. With a 2620 mAh battery, this Snapdragon 650 processor based handset promises up to two days of battery back up. It has 3 GB of RAM that runs this Android Marshmallow operating system. The Dual SIM Sony Xperia X has 64 GB of internal storage that can be increased up to 200 GB through a micro SD card.
But the highlight of Sony Xperia X is its cameras – it has a 23 megapixel rear camera that has 1/2.3” Exmor RS for mobile sensor, Predictive Hybrid AF, Quick launch, 5x Clear Image Zoom, 24mm Wide Angle G Lens and F2.0 aperture. Its front 13 megapixel front camera has 1/3” Exmor RS for mobile sensor, Quick launch, 22mm Wide Angle Lens and F2.0 aperture.
