Introduced at MWC 2016 and launched in May 2016 in India, the Sony Xperia X has received a price cut of Rs. 14,000 for a limited period and now it is available for sale at Rs. 24,990 at Flipkart. Flipkart says that the Xperia X Dual will be available at the discounted price i.e. Rs. 24,990 till stocks last.
The was launched with a price tag of Rs. 48,990 along with Sony Xperia XA. And just after three months of its launch, Sony has cut the price of the smartphone by Rs. 10,000. At that time it was available for Rs. 38,990.
Talking about the specs, the Sony Xperia X is fronted with a 5-inch full-HD (1080×1920 pixels) Triluminos display for mobile powered X-Reality for mobile engine. Besides, the front panel occupies a 13-megapixel of secondary image snapping tool with an f/2.0 aperture. Meanwhile, the Xperia X is baked with a 23-megapixel rear camera with an f/2.0 aperture and a 1/2.3-inch Exmor RS sensor, predictive hybrid autofocus, and pulse LED flash; and a 2620mAh battery, under the hood.
Running on Android 6.0.2 Marshmallow, the smartphone is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 650 processor coupled with 3GB of RAM. On storage front, it sports 64GB inbuilt storage, which is expandable up to 200GB via a microSD card. The handset measures 142.7×69.4×7.9mm and weighs 153 grammes.
Earlier when the device was launched in India, it was touted as ‘an overpriced device’ and since the company has slashed down the prices. However, the phone with a reduced price wasn’t capable enough to attract sales, therefore, Sony is now offering a massive discount of around 50 percent of its launching price. But giving an eye to its specs and the current price i.e Rs. 24,990, it still doesn’t seem as a worth buy.
Giving an eye to its specs and the current price i.e Rs. 24,990, it still doesn’t seem as a worth buy. Because the handset comes with a Snapdragon 605 chipset and the market is already flooded with similar smartphones with much lower prices, like Redmi Note 3 and Moto G4 Plus. Hence, it is yet a doubtful case that whether the Sony Xperia X will generate enough interest for the device for the consumers.
