in Xperia Z1

Sony-India-Xperia-Z1-Launch-InviteDetails of the Sony Xperia Z1 launch will emerge on 18 September, when the official media party takes place. Invites have been sent to the media and Sony Mobile has also been sending emails to people on its email distribution teasing them about the upcoming launch. One of the biggest online retailers in India, Flipkart, has listed a placeholder on its website too. We would expect the Xperia Z1 to be available by the end of the month in India and pricing details will emerge on 18 September.


Thanks Armaan, DetmL, and Vignesh!

    I remember Indians were complaining the z was not released on time in India…. what a turn around event! India is an important market

  • What about qx100 lens camera, when’s that coming to India?

  • charmaine6719

    44000 no way? you’re talking delusional. z1 in uk costs 599GBP which makes 60000 in india. give or take it will be around 52000-58000/-

  • charmaine6719

    44000 is rubbish dude.

  • Dil2abu

    Below 44k??

    Then i guess they gonna sell non LTE version in India as they did with Xperia Z..

  • Karan007

  • Sandeep Kumar

    my lord thank you. but maybe non LTE ver ?

  • Nishanth

    wow its really reasonable price … Please dont tell me that it is just guessing .

  • Llort

    Ew India.

  • DooMLoRD

    There will also be some awesome goodies! Similar to Xperia Z but of better quality ;)

  • DooMLoRD

    Where do you see LTE operational in India? They will mostly release the HSPDA+ version (C6902) in India:

  • DooMLoRD

    I guess you will have to wait for less than a week to find out.

  • Martin Ambre

    waiting for Honami mini

  • Martin Ambre

    hey do u know any firmware for Xperia acro S which is stable in JB
    even custom ROM is oke with me

    havent unlocked the bootloader yet also

  • Martin Ambre

    Need firmware update on my acro S
    battery drains
    home screen redrawing after closing apps
    connectivity to Bluetooth and Wifi cannot happen automatically (using SBH20)

    issues continue…..

  • xperiax10.awesome

    @DooMLoRD – you switching to XZ1?
    I already sold my Xperia Z – waiting for Xperia Z1 in Singapore, my main concern is Battery life, if improvement m gonna buy else will keep my Nexus 4 !!

  • esato guy

    Hi Doomlord, its a pretty good news,so what do the goodies you refer,qx10 or a flap case and i feel its a reasonable price….any chance of kitkat firmware in this year

  • Hritik Bhimani

    what kind goodies doom ??? btw wat u think r they r gonna provide nfc tags n desk stand wid it like acro s?

  • cs098

    you gonna make kernel for this right?

  • DooMLoRD

    flip case and some more stuff… i dont think they will give those lenses…

  • DooMLoRD

    already started ;)

    based on initial sources for Xperia Z Ultra (they both have same board):

  • DooMLoRD

    flip case… dont think lens will be given…

  • DooMLoRD

    yup! will be getting the Z1!

    battery life should be lot better considering the newest Snapdragon S800 processor and HUGE battery…

  • Anirudh Arya

    I am using xperia z
    I used it for more then 5 hours by playing
    after that it get heated then I kept aside
    its screen get cracked with out any physical hit
    what I can do know
    any suggestions plzz

  • cs098

    Yay :D

  • Geoffxx

    Maybe at the party you could ask to verify the following

    The claim is that Sony are using remaining stock of XZ screens on XZ1 until they are used up


    JDI type 1 – AH-IPS (this was used for the ZU)
    JDI type 2 – VA (Xperia Z/ZL leftovers)
    Sharp – VA (Xperia Z/ZL leftovers)
    Samsung – S-PLS (Will only be used after all the VA panels are used up)

    Sony is using up the remaining inventory from Z/ZL and mixing in some AH-IPS panels. Once all the VA panels are used up Sony will only use AH-IPS and S-PLS panels.
    This would explain why some prototypes have outstanding displays and some are just like Z/ZL.

  • Guest

    WTF!! Is here everyone from India?!

  • AkashPurswani

    yes and the Z Ultra retails for 614 GBP but its now available for 41,000 INR in india. GBP prices are always high due to taxes and other differences.

  • Sanyam Jain

    You are correct it would be priced around 42k…
    Because Z ultra is costlier than Z1 in europe so I hope it would be cheaper than Z ultra…I pray to god that I am correct in my assumptions :D

  • Sanyam

    Did you check the price of Z ultra in UK and in India..??

  • Sidhant Karmic Varun

    Theyre giving free 5000 Mah battery pack and accidental cover for a year and the leather case ofcourse.

  • Aditya

    Using older display panels? u sure?

  • Aditya

    please send a link showing good displays on xperia z1

  • kartik

  • Akarsh
