Sony launched the Xperia X smartphone in India after the launch of its Z5 range of smartphones. Sony’s smartphones are usually priced on the higher side. And this is also true for even the compact range of smartphones from the company. Now when we talk about pricing, Xperia X at the time of the launch, was priced at about 48,990 INR. Well, by no means this device was bad. But still was priced comparatively higher. Even the previously launched Z5 Premium was priced at about 55,990 INR at the time of the launch.
But now it looks like the idea of heavy pricing didn’t really work out for the company. Yes, both the devices i.e. the Sony Xperia Z5 Premium & the Xperia X prices are dropped. The Z5 Premium is now priced at about 47,990 INR & the Xperia X is now priced at 36,990 INR. Here, with this price drop, we are looking at about 8,000 INR to 10,000 INR price gap for these devices now. As mentioned earlier, the idea of heavy pricing clearly didn’t work out for them, because it is not a daily scenario that we see such major price drops. Anyway, stay tuned for info such news.
