Struggling smartphone brand, Sony Mobile, today announced yet another price cut for their Sony Xperia X smartphone. The phone gets a massive price cut of Rs. 14,000 and now costs Rs. 24,990, which is still a steep price for a phone with Qualcomm Snapdragon 650 SoC under-the-hood.
The phone was originally launched in India for Rs. 48,990 back in May 2016. However, Sony was heavily criticized for the heavy price tag. That said, just after three months after its original launch, the phone received a price tag of Rs. 10,000, but costs still a lot more than other phones with the same chip. With this price cut, the phone receives a total price cut of Rs. 24,000, which is the biggest one we have seen in recent times.
Speaking about the Xperia X, it comes with a 5-inch Full HD screen and is powered by the hexacore Qualcomm Snapdragon 650 SoC, coupled with 3GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. The device’s USP is its 23MP rear camera that has support for Hybrid Autofocus, which can lock the focus in under 0.1 seconds.
Nevertheless, the phone was backed with a 2630mAh battery, which doesn’t even match with modern day offerings. When compared to other phones, the Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 is also powered by the same Snapdragon 650 SoC, coupled with 3GB of RAM, but costs just Rs. 12,000. Even after today’s price cut, the phone won’t match the budget king, Redmi Note 3 by any means.
