Sony India last month unveiled the new Xperia X series in the country. The Sony Xperia X Dual, priced at Rs. 48,990, went on sale earlier this month while the Sony Xperia XA Dual was announced to be available from the third week of June. The company seems to be finally ready to make the Xperia XA Dual available in the country.
Sony has now tipped the release date of the Xperia XA Dual, priced at Rs. 20,990, for the Indian market in a tweet. According to the company, the Sony Xperia XA Dual will go on sale in the country starting Friday. The tweet read, "Borderless design - Stunning low-light Selfie. This Friday!"
Considering that Sony made the Xperia X available via Amazon India and authorised Sony retailers across the country, we can expect the Xperia XA Dual to be available from the same retailers.
Sony has already revealed launch offers for the Xperia XA Dual, specifically, Rs. 2,700 worth of free content in the form of a three-month subscription to Sony Liv, a three-month subscription to Hungama Play, and Kindle ebooks worth Rs. 1,000. The Xperia X Dual will come bundled with Gameloft games alongside free credits worth Rs. 780.
