Xperia XZs announced for India; priced at Rs.49,990

by XB on 3rd April 2017

in Xperia X series


Sony Mobile India held a press event earlier today, announcing the introduction of the Xperia XZs for the market. Xperia XZs pre-orders open tomorrow in India, with the Xperia XZs to hit retail on 11 April 2017. The Xperia XZs will be available in three colours (Black, Warm Silver, Ice Blue) at a recommended price point of Rs. 49,990 (£614, €721, $769).

The Xperia XZs looks pretty much identical to the Xperia XZ, but comes with an upgraded camera, using the new 1/2.3-inch 19MP Exmor RS “Motion Eye” camera, with 960 frames per second super slow motion video and predictive capture. It has a pixel pitch of 1.22μm is 19% larger than those used Sony’s previous Xperia phones. This is the same camera that will be found in the Xperia XZ Premium. The main other upgrade is 4GB RAM (versus 3GB for the Xperia XZ).

Other features remain the same as the Xperia XZ, including Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 (MSM8996) chipset, 32GB internal storage (64GB for dual SIM), a 2900mAh battery , IP65/IP68 dust and water resistance and a 13MP 1/3.06-inch Exmor RS front-facing camera.

    Sony’s last chance to get it right. if camera quality fails again…

  • bobeobi gzigzigzeo

    Lol, just converted to dollars, 770$!! Dead on arrival

  • Chaturanaga Manchanayake

    Oh no what are they smoking? $770??

  • Chaturanaga Manchanayake

    Blame the algorithms

  • Eric Jay

    Whats the minimum shutter speed?

  • Nick Paschalidis

    This makes me wonder what the pricing of the XZ Premium will be…

  • Subham Dey

    almost same price as s7 edge here in india!
    good option but I still think s7 edge is better

  • twm

    Refresh of X Performance asking the 2016 launch price again, good luck with that.

  • Srijan Chawla

    Just wait it out, it’s going​ to drop 15K INR in 3-4 months, just like my XZ did.

  • Emil Oskarsson

    My x performance can take some stunning shots though, on par with devices such as galaxy s7 and LG g5 :p and much better than iPhone 7 :)

  • Hideg Jenő Péter

    Reminder, he’s using auto mode (both). He doesn’t to use Manual settings because peoples are compliant. (check YT comments.)

  • SM

    what? 15k? what are you smoking dude? current xz price is near arounf 38k which is 25% lesser than the launch price i.e. 50k

  • SM

    insene pricing policy once again. that’s one of the main reason besides lack of marketing & R&D why xperia don’t sell well or at all. I even stop complaining or hoping that they will come back with proper everything to regain the market.

  • Srijan Chawla

    I meant drop by 15k not drop to 15k man :/

  • SM

    Well, then you should have use ‘by’ in your first comment. It’s a writing mistake from your side & what you have written only mean that what I understood at first.

  • KarFar

    As long as the youtuber didn’t show the devices in hand, then it’s fake

  • James Neuburger Gaston

    You guys really need to look at Xperias’ prices here in Brazil… I think they are the most expensive

  • James Neuburger Gaston

    The XZ is about 1000 dollars right now

  • James Neuburger Gaston

    I bought my used Z3 for about 300 dollars 2 months ago

  • Aiden Pearce

    Off the road again..
    Never learn Sony, just be stubborn and soon you will walk out of Indian market with your Japanese mumbo jumbo.. Mybe Sony already packed their bags…

  • techauther tech

    haha sony are u kidding me? that price and almost absent after sales support and bad resale value on olx and ebay. nah nah nah logos don’t sell phones anymore.

  • Moisés

    Paguei R$1850 no z3+. Tem um ano já.
    Na época o z3 era 2500, z5 era 4200.

  • Petrohead

    The writing was perfectly fine. Your interpretation was incorrect.
    “It’s going to drop 15K” and “It’s going to drop by 15K” mean the exact same thing. “It’s going to drop TO 15K” is the only way to word that inflection.
    Srijan was correct in his statement.

  • bobeobi gzigzigzeo

    ‘Cause of crazy import taxes, I know, and here in Ukraine we have 35% tax on items over 160$, but on a grey market you can buy XZ for example for around 400$ or less

  • bobeobi gzigzigzeo

    Yeah, that was last hope, now need to switch brand, what do u recommend?

  • Ziggy

    That’s surprisingly crazy price. The 32GB version of XZs is just 579€ in Finland and I thought our country is expensive.

  • Samar Vaishampayan

    Definitely won’t buy Sony anymore. Brought a redmi note 4. Better performance/ price ratio with xiaomi. If they don’t provide updates after 1 year, it’s ok with me. Battery life is stellar.

  • SM

    I don’t agree with you. Don’t know what are you guys learning nowdays in the name of modern English. You are saying that I am wrong whereas he didn’t use the preposition in his sentence? You are just as wrong n ignoring grammar as like as he did. With and without preposition and also with improper preposition, meaning of a sentence cannot be the same. It’s all about grammer and grammar is like body odors you know, you can certainly avoid it by your own choice, but don’t be surprised if anyone points it out to you.

  • Alex Norris

    Google Pixel or OnePlus 3, good choice.

  • Srijan Chawla

    Says the man who uses “n” in place of “and”. :P
    Chill man, we all are humans.

    Paguei 1499,99 em 10x no Z3 Compact uns 2 ou 3 meses após seu lançamento numa promoção do guriveio com uma outra empresa grande que não lembro qual era

  • Moisés

    Eu tinha um Xperia C.

    No início de 2016 eu fui por imprevistos obrigado a pegar um novo.

    Vi um z2 por 1200 mas tava sem grana no dia. Dei sorte pois é grande e feio. Preto na frente, branco atrás e a moldura metálica prateada..

    Queria mesmo o z3 dual, mas era mais de 2300.

    Aí pensei em pegar o M5, mas escutei coisas ruins dele, um lance de desligar e só ligar plugado na tomada.

    O alvo passou a ser o M4, era 1300…

    Mas começou a aparecer promoções do z3+ de menos de 1900..

    É muito superior…

    O software de cam melhor que do z3. Usb livre. 32gb. Memoria interna melhor. Bem mais potente. O display é GG4. O vidro traseiro é mais resistente que do z3.

    Com o z3 eu pagaria 600 a mais e ainda uns 200 no carregador que usa aqueles pontinhos na lateral, para não abrir a tampa da usb.

    Já estou com o android 7 uns 10 dias ao menos.

    Na época que o z3 veio o dólar era pouco mais de 2,00 … Z3 chegou por 2700.
    Z3+ chegou por 3000.

    Como o dólar subiu e a Sony não faz mais celular no Brasil desde setembro/15 o preço subiu..

    M5 era 2600 e o z5 veio 4300.

    Cheguei a achar o z3c de 1200, mas não é dual. E o vi na loja.. É muito pequeno para mim.. Fica difícil digitar..

    That translates to £617.53 whereas the XZP is on preorder on Amazon UK for £649.00 so I wouldn’t pay that price (49,990) for it!
    For once I don’t think the UK is getting ripped off, and we’re known as rip off Briton, but we’ll have to wait and see

  • Woody UK

    If Apple made real TV’s, the same specs as Sony and Samsung, how much more expensive do you think they would be than Sony’s? They wouldn’t be because Sony believes that Sony products are not just better, but the best, and that you have to pay for that quality. Some agree, some disagree that’s what choice is all about.
    Unfortunately, you/we (because I only buy Sony phones and tablets) really are paying for a brand whether we like it or not.
    Now it’s up to us if we think the product we’re buying is worth it for the specs and brand, and if we don’t, then we don’t buy. Well at least I don’t!
    I haven’t bought a new phone since Z5 Compact because I haven’t thought the brand and specs have been worth it. There’s been some fantastic phones come on the market at half the price of the Sony X brands but I haven’t bought them either, even though I’ve been tempted.
    The two main reasons for that is because…
    1. They’re Apple lookalikes and I walked away from Apple many years ago (2009 iPhone 3GS) was the last Apple product I bought, granted only the one phone, but 4 Apple laptops​ and 1 Apple server before that…
    2. Because I knew in my head/heart that eventually Sony would make a phone again that I would find value for money with the top specs and brand name, and they’ve done that with the XZP because it’s on preorder here in the UK (via Amazon) for £10 LESS than the S8 is on sale for! (Sony XZP £649) and trust me, here in the UK we’re known as “rip off Britons!” So finally Sony are undercutting both Sam & App and, IMHO, they have a better product than both of them with the XZP!
    So if you’re not happy with pricing, don’t buy straight away, wait a year til the price drops! If you’re not happy with the specs, then wait for a better spec phone. But for me personally, I’ll be buying the XZP without hesitation!
    I also hope that Sony release a 10″ & 7″or8″ 4K HDR tablet in time for black Friday, Xmas at the latest, and blow Sam’s tablet away! I’m writing this on my Z2 Tablet, I didn’t buy the 2 newer variants as again, not enough new technology to justify it, BUT, if I didn’t own the Z2 Tablet, then I would have bought the Z4 Tablet without hesitation as it blew away not only Sam’s tablet but also apple’s iPad air and now Pro! And still does!
    So I totally agree, the X range is too over priced for the specs until now with the XZP, but this is THE only one that’s value for money! I wouldn’t buy the XZs at these prices, and if they made the compact with ALL the top specs at the right price, then I would buy that instead as I prefer a phone that fits in my small hands and pockets! I’ve bought the compact version of Z1, Z3 and Z5 and wish Sony would go back to putting the best of everything in a small package but with at least a FHD screen instead of the 720!
    So if you’re still reading, thanks, but what I’m trying to explain is, it’s your choice! If you don’t think it’s value for money then don’t buy it, simples!

  • Funny when you think Sony doesn’t really charge a hefty premium for PlayStation.

  • That’s good and all, but MIUI is insufferable. If I wanted a shameless iOS clone of an interface, I would just get the original thing. And many folks share that sentiment as well.

  • Woody UK

    That’s because they make any losses up on their games

  • Woody UK

    And to be honest, the only phone I would desert Sony for is this one…
    It’s a truly remarkable phone and if it does become a reality then I would never have to buy a phone again after buying this one! Nobody would!

    Before pointing out to others mistake, correct your own. And BTW, writing ‘n’ instead of ‘and’ isn’t a ‘mistake’. OK? Or should I say, OKAY? And, even I made any mistake (no matter what) in life, then I have the guts to admit it. But, do you?
    Yes, I know, we’re human & that’s exactly why being another human, I’m correcting you and your mistake. If it’s not about humans, then we probably would be programmed it without discussion.

  • Srijan Chawla

    Thank you for all your knowledge.
    Now please bug another stranger.

  • Petrohead

    You don’t have to agree with me. I’m in an English speaking country, with English as my first/primary language and I know that what I’m telling you is correct, factual, and accurate.
    You’re getting yourself in a knot over your own misinterpretation instead of actually admitting that you simply misunderstood the original inflection. Chill out.

  • James Neuburger Gaston

    O Z3 que eu peguei é o Dual, a única coisa que não gostei nele hahaha, sério… O modelo com um chip tem muito mais suporte à custom Roma e etc.
    Por exemplo, testei o preview do N no nele, achei perfeito, todos os apps que testei/uso funcionam, desempenho muito bom, várias funções do 7.0 e ainda funciona o app da câmera da Sony… Só que não detecta nenhum chip :(
    Até tentei fazer umas maracutaias com os arquivos de sistema substituindo e/ou modificando mas não deu certo… Seria muito mais feliz com o de um chip :/
    Desde então estou com uma custom ROM baseada na última versão do Marshmallow oficial, com algumas modificações minhas e sem root é claro, para jogar Pokémon GO hahaha

  • Moisés

    O de 1 chip aqui era para as operadoras e tinha tv digital. O Dxx43 acho.
    Na europa tem a versão 32gb , acho que é o de 1 chip.. O verde acho..

    Nem ligo para atualização, só fiz para ganhar os ícones iguais aos dos X… Z3+ e z5 não os têm no 6.0.1 …..

    E tbm para dar uma esfriada… No cpu z consta só os A53 funcionando. Mas nem notei diferença. Nunca tive os 8 núcleos, chegou com 6 depois ficaram 5 , agora 4…
    Nem sei se em tarefa pesada eles ligam.

    Bateria dura uns 25% mais em relação ao 5.0.2 …

    Nem faço ideia se o 7.1 vem.. Imagino que este é o último semestre de suporte.. Se o z3 tivesse o 7, teoricamente a cada semestre um Z ficaria para trás..

  • SM

    Well, that I can actually see that how ‘impeccable’ your English is. I’d like to inquire more about your country, race & ethnicity. Tell me more. & one more thing, when its comes to speak & write English with proper grammatical usage, its doesn’t matter who you are & from where do you belong actually. If you know it, you know it. If you don’t, then learn. Simple. I can’t see any discrimination between any native speaker & someone who’s mother though is English.

  • Roh_Mish

    The service is actually good. I had issues with an Xperia C I got for my mom and they were quick. Much better than Xiaomi and Samsung IMO.

  • techauther tech

    in my city samsung has 2 service centers and both are well maintained, air conditioned, proper token systems and the staff is well dressed with uniforms and all. sony on the other hand has 1 service center. they rented a small godown with 2 huge rooms and non finished walls and floor. no AC, no water filter, staff with plain clothes. last time when i visited that service center it was one day before Holi to take back my brother’s xperia z3 which was submitted 1 month ago. All of a sudden the staff started playing holi inside the room where they repair the phones. plethora of devices, components, computers lying open on the work bench and they are enjoying. there was no door to separate inner and outer rooms so every customer saw what was happening. i took pictures and mailed them to sony india and as expected no action was taken. coming on to brands like xiaomi when you pay half the price so you already know they will have garbage service centers. i have also visited many cities and service centers throughout my college life and now as an working professional with a job that keeps me transferring to places. apple has been the best then comes samsung and then comes sony for me. rest all htc,lg,xiaomi…etc have equally bad service. the best thing about samsung, sony is that after they repair the phones they look like the phone you gave to them and not scratched up. both along with apple are miles faster than all others combined. when nokia was alive it used to top my list because i have never ever visited a nokia service center in my lifetime and i have had over 5 high end nokias. btw i am not a fanboy of any brand but a fan of a good product whatever the brand may be.
