Japanese mobile maker Sony’s flagship phone, Xperia XZ2, has been launched in India at an exorbitant price of Rs. 72,990. The phone has a long list of features to show up for the asking price. These include advanced Motion Eye camera technology, high-quality front-facing stereo speakers, IP65/ 68, HDR display with water resistance feature, and Google’s ARCore and Google Lens image search technology.
The pricing still feels like a mistake and kind of explains why Sony has failed to gather as much fanfare as Samsung and OnePlus have in India.
