Coming to the aesthetics and build of the device, it is based on a metal frame design alongside a glass back. Furthermore, the glass at the front and back are both protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 6. Also, the device has an IPX5/8 water resistance certification.

Sony Xperia 8 Lite Price

The Sony Xperia 8 Lite is priced at JPY 29,800 which is roughly Rs 20,800 in India. This is the price set for the variant with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. The device has launched in two color options which are White and Black. However, because of the glass back and metal design, the overall finish of the phone is glossy in nature. The smartphone is all set to go on sale starting from September 1 in Japan.

However, Sony does have a major challenge in especially the Asian mobile markets. This is simply because of what the brand offers and at what price. While the Asian markets are flooding with brilliant value for money devices at affordable prices, Sony does not seem to drop its price what upgrade the specifications. Although the Snapdragon 630 SoC is decent but, definitely not something to be sold in a device at the price that the Xperia 8 Lite is being sold. Also, the battery capacity would have been good 5-6 years ago but things have changed a lot since then. However, the device is something for the Sony fans out there, maybe.
