Sony India launches Xperia SP for INR 27,490


Sony Xperia SPSony has announced the launch of Xperia SP mid-range Android phone in the Indian market. The phone will join company’s high-end Xperia Z and ZL phones that were released in the country last month. Company has priced Sony Xperia SP at INR 27,490, which is a decent price, but will have a lot of competition from phones like Galaxy S III and HTC One X as they have got price-cuts recently.

In my view, more aggressive pricing would have been great, as company pursued with Xperia Z and Xperia ZL phones, both of which are currently selling for INR 37,990 and INR 35,990 respectively.

Sony Xperia SP was originally announced last month and packs decent mid-range specs. It runs on Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, and would likely be updated to 4.2.2 and next Android version, but nothing has been officially announced till now.

On the imaging front, Sony Xperia SP comes with 8MP rear camera with LED flash, and VGA front camera. In addition, the phone features 1GB of RAM, 8GB of on-board storage, and microSD card slot that support up to 32GB.

The phone sports a 4.6-inch 720p HD display and is powered by 1.7 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Plus dual-core processor with the Adreno 320 GPU.  Among other features, Sony has included NFC, GPS with Glonass, and the usual connectivity options.

According to a press release issued by the company, Sony Xperia SP will come pre-loaded with ‘Sony Music’ music-streaming app with six months of free unlimited music streaming, as well as ‘Sony LIV’ video streaming app.

Availability:

Sony Xperia SP will be available in Sony stores as well as major retail stores beginning mid-April in Black and White colours.

    It’s priced pretty high. Shouldn’t have been more than 25k. I think even galaxy grand(barring some features of course) would be preferred by many users over this.

    The pricing sounds great for a Snapdragon S4 Pro chipset. The price is official release price right? Lets see how its Street market price goes.

      Its not S4 pro, S4 pro is quad core. This is S4 plus with same GPU of S4 pro i.e Adreno 320 but CPU is dual core…anyway, but still I think this phone is decently priced…
