The Sony Xperia Z5 Dual will be released on 23 October at a price point of Rs. 52,990 (£526, €717, $813). It will be available in three colours including Graphite Black, Gold and Green (no White unfortunately for the Indian market).

Pre-orders for the Xperia Z5 Premium Dual will take place between 25 October and 4 November 2015. If you pre-order, Sony will also throw in the Sony Wireless Stereo Headset MDR-EX31BN worth Rs. 5490 free of charge (as well as the above goodies).

Xperia Z5 pricing India

Launch offers for the handsets includes a free Quick Charger UCH10 (in the box) and a free Smart Cover worth Rs. 3,500 (through redemption). Further details on launch offers can be found here. If you are in India and were considering the Xperia Z5 series, does the pricing sound fair to you or are there other brands that offer better bang per buck? We’d love to hear your views in the comments below.

Thanks Alfred, Armaan and Shah!

    I just show dummies at Sony Store, gold and grey…sexiest xperia ever !!!

  • Ailan Hidaz

    Wow crazy prices – but at least that includes the style cover and free quick charger.

  • Kunal Shukla

    Galaxy S6 32GB price around 3800 INR, HTC one m9+ 39000 INR, Moto Turbo 64GB 42000 INR, galaxy note edge 45000 INR, LG G4 38000 INR

    Compare prices yourself and ask if Sony prices can be justified. and why aren’t they launching single sim version

  • Prateek Bhanushali

    Beat it….Even Xperia z3+ is priced at 37,000 :D

  • Anukul

    moto x style is 30k

  • Aiden Pearce

    at least they did not completely ruin it as compared to Ip 6s

  • Aiden Pearce

    this is the launch price even GS6 was launched at 60K..it will settle over time dont compare old prices of after they have settled in market

  • Kunal Shukla

    they are apple they can do it, coz no other manufacturer is offering ios devices.

  • Aiden Pearce

    it doesnot give them sole right to sell same stupid device at more than half a lakh

  • Akshay Ballal

    India gets one of the worst launch offers but higher or comparable prices with the world… Where the world receives high end music headsets or smart watch we get quick charger and smart cover… Face palm… Thought of upgrading my Xperia Z but the exorbitant pricing and not so good launch offer makes me feel happy with my Xperia Z…

  • Aiden Pearce

    and that to you will get cover in within 30 days of redeeming the offer..that’s completly nonsense, why cannot they just put in the box like Z2

  • Akshay Ballal

    I don’t think the Smart Cover will be the worth… I bought Xperia Z when it was launched… Sony provided with a very loose and a lower quality cover and paltry MDR-ZX100 headsets which were pathetic than the in-the-box headset… I expected something better with Z5… The only things that are pulling me towards Z5 is finger print scanner, excellent camera and dual sim over Z… And for that I will have to shell out a whopping 40k (selling my Z for 10-12k) for the above incremental update…. Not worth for sure…

  • Aiden Pearce

    the z2 cover was excellent, but no idea abt this one,i m tired of flaps in my z3 so most probably switch to z5,but kind of dilemma bcz of dual variant always neglected fr updates and poor network reception

  • Akshay Ballal

    I have Z and Samsung Galaxy ACE and kinda pissed off carrying 2 phones… Could think of Z5… Where do you stay if Mumbai we can buy together to get some good deal…

  • Aiden Pearce

    i would be happy to but currently i put up in bangalore

  • Kaarthikeyan Swaminathan

    I just broke looking at the price. :(
    Was waiting to leave behind my Z1 which is still in great shape. I shall wait till the price drops.

  • Kunal Shukla

    my point isn’t about the settled prices and launch time prices. My point here is when you have reference price point from other manufacturer why don’t you price it competitively and play sensibly. S6 was launched pretty earlier this year and was one of the first few flagships for 2015.

  • Kunal Shukla

    while I agree with you that if they make the devices in india price will surely come down you can’t deny the fact that apple spend way too much than any other manufacturer for their software development and support. And the seemless integration with their devices is what makes apple unique.

  • Kunal Shukla

    Xperia M5 is pretty close to the heels of Z3, Z3+ which is a mid ranger according to sony.

  • Kunal Shukla

    moto x play is great choice. it has a good sony sensor and produce good quality images when compared to z5 according to gsm arena. and I hate to agree with them. Artefacts ruining pics of sony devices is an old story now.

  • insyt

    Apple makes money off their Appstore whilst Android manufacturers like Sony don’t. The income from the Appstore more than covers for all software development.

  • Naresh Gundu

    Outrageous pricing :P but i believe it would come down eventually. I wonder why they skipped releasing the Z5 compact in Indian market.

  • Kunal Shukla

    I agree no body can deny that apple has one of the best revenue model. I m just saying if I develop a thing that is exclusive to me I can sell it at a price I want to coz there is no competition. But android can’t to that so it’s pointless comparing android and ios

  • Prateek Bhanushali

    Yeahh…. I donno why such strategies when even Sony says that India is their most important Market to be look after !!!

  • shenoy

    Hey akshay, I wanted Z5C as I wanted to discard my Z1. But Sony never launched it. Camera is not good as per many reviews. I mean not upto the level of the scene Sony created.

  • Kunal Shukla

    tell me where can i sell my Xperia Z @ 10-12K plz

  • Akshay Ballal

    I will sell my Galaxy Ace too…

  • Achu kumar

    i think i will get an z3+ its cheap and more importantly single sim

  • HAWX

    I would do the same thing If the Z3+’s camera wasn’t bad..

  • HAWX

    Yeah, I have Z and I don’t think I will upgrade to Z5.. Fingerprint scanner, camera, and music playback performance are really good but I don’t think the price is worth the update from even Xperia Z.

  • HAWX

    Agreed, iOS is stable like a machine. Apple is the only manufacturer
    it’s quality software, it might wort the price in that sense. But Sony clearly needs to drop the prices.. Apple is already selling these phones like hot bread, they don’t need to do with anything with prices.

  • HAWX

    Yeah but think in that way: You can get almost the same performance from cheaper devices. ;)

  • HAWX

    Wow! They are now quite expensive compared to other near performance devices. I could get 1 flagship and 1 budget phone for the same price xD. Or I could wait few months and get device with 820 inside, with overall better device. I don’t know what Sony is thinking :?

  • Achu kumar

    i hold an xperia u in ics and my friend has an iphone 4,i can run some new apps and while friends done as a brick as it does not support any app. thats what android offers that apple.on the other side apple os is smooth and faster.

  • Timel

    I have Moto X Pure, it’s a shit phone. There’s no bloody tech reviewer who reviews smartphones properly. Poor battery life, yellowish tint on the screen, gets warmed up pretty bad even with regular use (the screen heats up and you can feel it on your finger end). The android implementation is OK but I noticed lag. You will never read any review pointing these things out.

  • Rahul

    May be i shud think of buying this after 1-1.5 years when price is half of what it is

  • Kunal Shukla

    i do feel this many time that flaws on sony phone gets too much highlight

  • Kunal Shukla

    android is an open source project and therefore the support is always great. Apple can never come even close to android on it

  • Kunal Shukla

    I have a galaxy ace s5830 as well

  • Timel

    that’s not the point. Problem is everyone is a tech blogger these days. The way it works is that the top sites get access to the new stuff the earliest. Now, all top sites/reviewers are biased towards some company (either Apple or Samsung) and they have a certain dislike for Sony Mobile (it is clear from the choice of words that do not suggest, but persuade someone to believe its a poor product).

    All the other small time tech bloggers read that blog, paraphrase it and present as their own content and the next thing you know is that “everyone is speaking poorly about Sony phones”..

  • insyt

    True. But a lot of comments (incl your previous one) make it seem like the exorbitant prices are due to software cost. But in reality all software development is to add in an extra revenue stream by locking in people to the Apple Appstore. The high prices of iPhones is just to make the shareholders richer. Apple isn’t the richest company due to selling volume.

  • theskig

    Single SIM exist for every model.
    I’ll consider also the Z3, cheaper and maybe better than Z3+

  • theskig

    I think many of us will wait for a price drop :)

  • Aiden Pearce

    sony is going nuts, stupid strategy to launch the dual variant all they want is to earn not compete with market, all they could do to compete was launch a shitty dual sim variant…

  • Aiden Pearce

    its not just about performance half of the apple (premium handset)users don’t know how their devices perform still they buy it why?

  • Akshay Ballal

    Agreed buddy… But the flaps are now loose to hell.. The charger wire is gone bad… So… Thought of upgrading to Z5… Will wait for price cut…

  • HAWX

    I think that’s because people know that there are only iOS devices from Apple and they release Samrtphones once in a year. And people also know their prices won’t go down like Samsung or Sony devices because they don’t have true competitor. People also know that no matter what Apple puts in their smartphones, they know Apple will support that phone about 3 years.. They also know that software support is done for exactly done for a few devices so there will be almost 0 lag 0 bug at least for 2-3 years. Same thing can’t be said for android devices.
    Ah and some people buy Apple because they use it like fashion statement.. It cannot be explained by logic :)

  • Naresh Gundu

    May be they are trying to make some profits with some initial buzz. i still remember the Z and Z1 were priced up some where close to what z5 is now.

  • Anukul

    play is an amazing phone, I read that review before. currently the best phone in india below 20k

  • Nitin Raval

    I started with a Sony Ericsson J240 or something, don’t remember, than had K750 Cybershot, Xperia Arc, Xperia Z, and at present I am using Z Ultra, bought another one this February. Unless Z5 comes in a PHABLET, like Zultra, in 6mm and 6.5″ screen, to me, all are useless.

  • redX

    actually it is available in 45k Rs. only, and if you select to pay through hdfc bank credit card emi option, you will also get 5k Rs. cashback

  • Jesal

    I wanted to buy the black xperia z5 premium.

    Any ideas will it be launched or not in India!
