Sony Xperia XZ1 India Launch Set for Today: Specifications, Features

Highlights

  • Sony Xperia XZ1 price in India expected to be higher than Rs. 45,000
  • It features a 3D scanning camera
  • Another highlight is the Snapdragon 835 SoC on board

Sony Xperia XZ1, the latest flagship smartphone from the Japanese consumer electronics giant, will be launched in India on Monday. The smartphone was first unveiled at IFA 2017 late last month, alongside the Xperia XZ1 Compact and the Xperia XA1 Plus. Notably, the latter smartphone was launched in India last week, and so far, there are no signs of the Xperia XZ1 Compact being brought to India. The Sony Xperia XZ1 India launch is set to take place at an event in New Delhi, and we recommend you stay tuned to Gadgets 360 for the latest updates from the event.

Sony Xperia XZ1 price

In the US, the Sony Xperia XZ1 is priced at $699.99 (roughly Rs. 45,000), and one can expect a fair premium on that price tag when it's brought to India. At the event, the company said that the smartphone will ship with Android 8.0 Oreo starting September, and it remains to be seen if that is the case with its India launch at the end of this month.
