The Xperia C (S39h, C2305) has so far only seen a China launch, but ever since the phone was announced there was always the feeling that it would hit other select markets. Rumours of an Indian launch have been around for a while and judging by a listing on Sony India it seems a certainty it will hit the region.
Sony India is currently offering six months worth of Accidental Damage Cover for its premium phones. We first reported on this when the Xperia Z1 was launched in India, but didn’t know which other phones it would apply to.
Well according to the T&C’s, this new promotion will apply to a number of devices bought on or after 15 September 2013. This includes the Sony Xperia Tablet Z, Xperia Z Ultra, Xperia Z1, Xperia Z, Xperia ZL, Xperia ZR, Xperia SP and Xperia C.
Yes, Sony India has included the Xperia C in this promotion which pretty much confirms it will be heading to India at some point. It is believed that the phone will retail for under INR 20,000 and launch in early October. We’ll bring you firm information once we have it.
The Sony Xperia C is the first Xperia device to sport a Mediatek MTK6589 chipset (1.2 GHz quad-core processor and IMG SGX544 graphics), 1GB RAM, 4GB internal storage, dual SIM, 5-inch qHD display, 2330mAh battery, 8MP Exmor R camera and VGA front-facing camera.
