The smartphone can be pre-booked from October 1 and sales will begin on October 10. It will be listed online on Amazon India and will also be available across Sony Center stores.
Sony has provided the 23MP main snapper on the Xperia XZ with several cutting-edge features. Its triple image sensing technology works on the quality and colors in photos.
