Highlights
  • Sony Xperia XZ1 was first unveiled at IFA 2017
  • The smartphone is set to launch in India on September 25
  • The smartphone is said to ship with Android 8.0 Oreo

Sony unveiled the Xperia XZ1 smartphone at IFA 2017, and now the smartphone is set to launch in India. The tech giant has sent out press invites for the launch event of the Sony Xperia XZ1 smartphone on September 25. The event will be hosted in Delhi, and pricing and availability details will be unveiled then.

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.
