Sony Xperia phones to get price cut in India?

329430-sony-logoA number of Sony Xperia devices may soon receive a price cut of up to 14% in India according to report from DNA India. The price cut is a response to competitors such as Samsung launching new models in the region. Sony Xperia models in the Z, T, C, E and M range will receive price cuts ranging between Rs 1,500 and Rs 6,500. An official announcement from the company is expected soon according to the report.

“The highest price cut is on the Z series smartphones, especially the Z3 handsets that were launched a couple of months ago. So the Xperia Z3 which currently retails between Rs 43,500 and Rs 44,900 will see a price reduction of Rs 6,000 to Rs 6,500. That’s a price correction of around 14%,” said an executive from a leading retail chain.

This was also confirmed by another retail executive: “We have been informed of the price cut and it will be implemented across all Sony handsets available in the market.”

“Companies typically take price cuts when they are expected to launch a new model or they want to expedite sales of their slow-moving items. While competition is heating up extremely in the mid-segment (Rs 15,000 to Rs 30,000), the refresh rate (new models being introduced in the market) is getting shorter as people are changing handsets very frequently,” said a senior mobile executive.

Thanks Saif!

    Who cares about Sony phones?

  • jag

    You’re here again. Thank you for your frequent visit here in xperiablog. You can also visit the support forum here in http://talk.sonymobile.com so some of the employees in sony mobile will hear your thoughts about their phones. It will be a shame if they won’t know your opinion about their flagship and other products.

  • Timel

    No! If Sony Mobile hear me, their products will sell well, I don’t want that happen, I want Sony Mobile to bankrupt

  • Sarfaraz Habib

    A good move because Sony is best but price is too much high

  • Tim Rox Westerholm

    I’m sorry to hear that bro

  • Faisal Armand

    FYI, Sony is the 2nd largest smartphone vendor in india.

    So.. Out you go

  • Reza

    I think you need a psychological therapy, trust me, it’ll work for you before it’s too late and getting worse…

  • Kunal Shukla

    this should bring them in terms with the competition, right now the their prices is ridiculously high.

  • Afzal Zainal Rddz

    You again?? Lol…

  • dreamgs1

    against sony policy. keep high price and its up to buyer. Don’t provide options with minor price correction. Buyers already have better option of buying other brands.

  • Xyor

    You just don’t understand there are many problems involved to a solution that seems very simple. If you didn’t have enough information, there is no place for you to judge the decisions that Sony made/had made.

  • Dmitry Perets

    I wonder how Z2/Z3 sells in Europe… I bet not very well. Because their price policy is terrible. Since they released Z3, I didn’t want to buy Z2 – because Z3 is so much better ergonomically and just because it is there. But on the other hand, I didn’t want to buy Z3, because it was so overpriced! And now, 4 month after the launch, it is still overpriced! It is a great phone, but it is about 100 euros more expensive than LG G3 and about 50 euros more expensive than Samsung / HTC. It doesn’t make any sense for those who are not pure Sony fans. Z3 should cost 500 euros max. in Europe. And Z2 shouldn’t exist at all. That would be a fair price.

  • Vignesh Raja

    Should have done this months ago!

  • Bur

    Lel, mine almost died same way, dried it in rice and saved it. Getting a new unit from Sony

  • A.o.D

    Ebay india is already offering better prices like z3 for Rs 35,500 and z2 for only Rs 24,799!

  • Reza

    How much you got paid for trolling here BTW? And what you’ve got afterwards? A satisfaction or an idiotic that keeps growing in your irritating mind???

  • A.o.D

    It was the 2nd largest. But right now its not even in the top 5

  • vigneshprince

  • vigneshprince

    yeah its not Indian Retail model, its an imported model. they won’t provide Sony warranty!

  • Flavio Lemos

    same here. i read in some forums and it seems that im not the only one. I have the xperia z(works perfectly in the water), z1(works perfectly in the water), z2(never tried in the water) and z3(dead). All the others worked well. WTF!!

  • Flavio Lemos

    yes i know.

  • I have seen price drop across all Sony models here in India in last couple of days, Z3 is now at 44k compared to 49k, Z2 is at 33k compared to 36k and guess what, I bought the old monster Z Ultra for 18.5k, I think its a steal at that price.

  • Boonerski

    He’s a troll! Don’t feed the troll!

  • Timel

    LoL what a shame!

    So Sorry for Sony Mobile, for their shitty phone, for their brainless fanboys

    R.I.P.

  • A.o.D

    whats stupid is, sony z3 compact costs 450-490 USD but in India it costs roughly 650 USD… thats a big difference.

  • Sumo

    jag Xperia brother, forget about this retard. His name Timel, that ‘l’ stand for lame. He just want’s attention. Let him be, another Samsunk and Sour Apple fanboy in the house…

  • Vignesh Raja

    Yes prices are already down. Sony should have done this in November.

  • Faisal Armand

    As shit as xperia phones can be, you cared more about them rather than your samsung phones. I really do want to thank you for increasing xperia site web traffic

  • Flavio Lemos

    i was in the pool.

  • Clarence Alvarado

    Wish it would be the same for the Philippines.

  • What? are you serious? 450usd in US? In my country(malaysia) it currently cost RM1800, should be around 600USD.

  • Sridhar D

    Welcome move. My 10th phone would also be a Sony Phone :). Unfortunately my 8th phone was a Samsung and that’s the shittiest phone ever made in the world :).

  • Timel

    Wow!

    My pleasure

  • Timel

    Actually I have been doing this for free, for fun, for the truth

  • vigneshprince

    yeah, I bought XZ2 imported version for 25 thousands Indian Rupees.
    original price is 35 thousands

  • Guest

    Note to Sony: It’s not only the Indians who cant afford the Xperia line of smartphones, it’s the rest of the world as well.

  • Utsav Shah

    lol. somebody is so scared of Sony.

  • vigneshprince

    yeah I got XZ2 Singapore version with seller warranty for lesser price!

  • inspire

    Both are actually selling quite well at least in Germany (europe). I see more z2/z3 in people’s hand as compared to LG g3/HTC one. Samsung is different story we all know in sales.

  • i think that sony mobile is not famous. But sms-sung (touch screen) is the best mobile .
