Sony to officially launch the Xperia XZs smartphone in India on April 4

Japanese tech giant Sony is set to officially introduce the Sony Xperia XZs smartphone in India and has already started sending out media invites for the launch event which will take place on April 4 at New Delhi. The company unveiled the Xperia XZs smartphone along with the Xperia XA1, Xperia XA1 Ultra, and Xperia XZ Premium at the Mobile World Congress 2017 (MWC) in Barcelona, Spain replacing the last year’s Xperia XZ. The upcoming Xperia XZs is basically a downsized version of the last year's Xperia XZ and its talking point is the camera which supports capturing of super slow motion videos at 960 frames per second.
