Sony launching the Xperia XZs in India

The Sony Xperia XZs was launched by the company at the MWC in February. The company isn’t wasting any time to bring the device to India if a new report is anything to go by. It is said that the device will break cover on the 4th of April, which is less than a week from now. The handset comes with a pretty exciting hardware specs sheet under the hood, although it seems like an incremental upgrade over the Xperia XZ from last year.

Featuring the same display, the Xperia XZs comes with a smaller 19MP sensor on the back. So one can say that the handset is slightly downgraded compared to the predecessor. However, a smaller camera sensor doesn’t necessarily mean its worse. The similarities are so striking that Sony has essentially used the same casing as with the Xperia XZ, which is evidenced by the dimensions and the weight of the new flagship.

In any case, the Xperia XZs has the potential to go a long way provided Sony markets it in the right way with a price tag of not more than Rs 35,000. Given the kind of competition it faces in the mobile industry, a steep price tag could prove to be fatal for the smartphone and the company. There’s no word on how much the handset will cost when it hits the country next week.
