Sony is set to launch its Xperia XZs smartphone in India on April 3 as the company has started sending invites for the event. The smartphone was initially launched by the Japanese company at MWC 2017 along with Xperia XZ Premium, Xperia XA1, and Xperia XA1 Ultra smartphones.
The Sony Xperia XZs is essentially a smaller variant of company's Xperia XZ smartphone with a 5.2-inch full-HD (1080x1920 pixels) Triluminos display. The single-SIM smartphone runs Android 7.0 Nougat and is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor coupled with Adreno 510 GPU and 4GB RAM. The device comes in 32GB and 64GB of inbuilt storage options, expandable further via microSD slot (up to 256GB).
In terms of optics, the Sony Xperia XZs smartphone packs a 19-megapixel Motion Eye camera with a 1/ 2.3-inch Exmor RS memory stacked sensor with predictive hybrid autofocus - all of which help to capture 960fps super slow motion videos. Its 13-megapixel front shooter is no slouch either, with a 22mm wide-angle lens. Sony Xperia XZs battery houses a 2900mAh battery.
The Xperia XZs measures 146x72x8.1 mm and weighs 161 grams. Connectivity options include Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, Bluetooth 4.2, GPS + GLONASS, NFC, and USB Type-C (USB 3.1) port. The sensors on the device include accelerometer, ambient light sensor, gyroscope, magnetometer, and proximity sensor.
The Sony Xperia XZs smartphone was launched in Ice Blue, Warm Silver and Black colours. We will have to wait for the official announcement of the phone by the company for Indian pricing and availability.
