Sony Xperia XZs With Snapdragon 820 Chipset and 19MP Rear Camera to Launch in India on April 4

Sony India will be launching their flagship phone, the Sony Xperia XZs in India on April 4. The company has sent out media invites for an event, and the invite explicitly mentions the Xperia XZs name. The invite states as ‘Dramatize Every Moment.’


To recall, the Sony Xperia XZs was announced back at the MWC 2017 event in Barcelona, Spain last month and it’s the successor for last year’s Sony Xperia XZ, which was a great phone, sans the pricing. The XZs doesn’t feature many changes from the XZ, and the differences are only in the camera segment.

The Sony Xperia XZs comes with the latest 19MP Exmor RS memory stacked sensor for much faster image processing. Sony has gone ahead and embedded the Motion Eye camera technology into the sensor itself. Also, the phone has the capability of recording slow motion videos at an insane 960fps. The phone has a 13MP front-facing camera for video and selfies.

The design of the smartphone is unchanged, and the phone comes with a dedicated camera shutter button. Rest of the specs of XZs are same as the Xperia XZ such as 5.2-inch Full HD display, Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 chipset, and 2900mAh battery. However, the RAM on this phone has been bumped to 4GB from the previous 3GB seen on Xperia XZ. The Xperia XZs also boots Android Nougat out-of-the-box.

The phone was launched in two storage options- 32GB with single SIM slot and 64GB with dual SIM slot. It’s highly possible that the dual SIM variant will make it to India.

Currently, there are no words on the pricing of the phone, but Sony will price it above Rs. 50,000. Moreover, the Xperia XZ received a price cut in India recently and is now retailing for Rs. 39,990. So, expect a steep price for Xperia XZs.

Few Years Back I was a Dying Fan of Sony. But now, I’m not. This is because Sony, now a days not coming with something new as It was doing back in the past.

On the Tech Specs. wise Why anyone will pay 40,000 for (SD820 + 4GB + 64GB) while I can get even more in OnePlus 3T in less price.

Sony should understand, that if they want to survive in the Market for a longer time, they need to work on Price, Design and Technology. Because the competition is now Cut Throat. Survive or Die.

Not apply too much mind… If u c long life, display colors , n sporty features of IP68, and the premium designing ,then xperia can’t be matched with with op3… So only d people who loves Chinese and don’t know d premium ness can’t feel Sony and other branded phones… Always remember, Chinese ph manufacturer collects different components, assembles them. And sells to people….they have no R&D ever. N Samsung, Sony, apple does a lot of R&D, whereas Chinese phones are low graded and copy cats
