Flashback to last quarter of 2015, there were reports and rumors regarding the fact that the Japanese handset maker, Sony might soon exit the smartphone business altogether. These reports came in the light of losses suffered by the brand, which the authorities were quick to debunk and Sony started over again with Xperia X series and how. So far, every Xperia X handset has managed to impress critics and Android lovers alike. Sony has now gone ahead and launched this year’s flagship device Xperia XZ in the country. The handset is scheduled to go on sale in country through Amazon as well as offline stores starting October 10, 2016 and pre-orders will begin from October 1, 2016. It has been priced at INR 51,990, which indicates that the brand has painted a target on the back of players like Samsung, HTC and Apple. However, early birds will be able to pick it up for Rs. 49,990 along with a complimentary Sony SWR30 SmartBand worth INR 8,990.
The new flagship comes with the same design as we have seen in other X series handsets featuring side mounted power button slash fingerprint scanner, which is the most comfortable position to use it. For some reason, Sony has placed volume buttons at lower edge near camera button, which make them slightly uncomfortable to control. In its defence, Sony is marketing this handset for its imaging capabilities and having them near shutter button makes it easier to zoom in and out of a frame. Speaking of cameras, the device has 23 Megapixels snapper on the back (best as of now) accompanied with laser, phase detection and contrast autofocus. On its front, there is 13 Megapixels wide angle camera, which is also the best in the market. Other specs of the handset include a 5.2-inch Full HD display, Android Marshmallow OS, Quad-core Snapdragon 820 processor with 3 GB RAM, dual SIM, 4G LTE and 2900 mAh battery. The device is also IP68 certified, which means it is well protected against dust and accidental splash or two.
From the looks of it, Sony might have a trump card in its arsenal this time around even if the handset is not as premium-looking as the last flagship, Xperia Z5. Lets us know whether you think you would go for the device or do you think that the price is too steep for this one.
