Sony Xperia Z3+ India launch scheduled for June 26
Sony’s latest Xperia Z3+ handset, also known as the Xperia Z4, has been gradually making its way out to a few territories since its launch in Japan back in April. Next on the list is India, where the handset will be launched on June 26th.
The launch will take place at a dedicated media event in New Delhi, which Sony has just begun sending out invitations too. The Xperia Z3+ isn’t mentioned by name on the invite, but the company has planned a global launch for the handset. We’ll also be keeping a close eye on the event to make sure there aren’t any regional changes, such as the QHD display added to the Xperia Z4v that is heading to Verizon Wireless in the US.
Despite the similarities with Sony’s previous generations of Xperia Z smartphones, the Xperia Z3+ remains a competitive modern flagship. Featuring a Snapdragon 810 SoC, 3GB of RAM, 20.7MP rear camera, IP68 certification for water and dust resistance, and Android 5.0 Lollipop installed by default.
But with price competition a key factor in the busy Indian smartphone market, we’ll have to see if Sony can price and market the Xperia Z3+ to appeal to consumers.
Sony has been eager to launch a range of handsets in India lately, no doubt to capitalize on the booming smartphone industry over there. Last month the company unveiled the Xperia M4 Aqua Dual and C3 Dual in India, which are competitively priced at Rs. 24990 and Rs. 29490 respectively.
I’d better go and jot June 26th down in my diary.
