Sony’s flagship smartphone Xperia Z3 is making an India entry in the last week of September 2014. According to the market buzz, Sony's third generation flagship Z3 expected to be priced around 52 thousand rupees or equal to the price of a brand new 125 CC bike in India. Therefore, Sony India’s marketing team has been coordinating with top online and offline retailers along with Banks to work out an attractive EMI or cash back option on the Z3 purchase. Also, the brand has been working hard to sort out differences between offline retailer to make the Z3 India launch a grand success during Dashhara and Diwali festival.
A recent smartphone sales figure shows; Sony is struggling to keep up its mobile phone business. Sony’s smartphone business has been badly hit due to Chinese cheap smartphones brand Xiaomi, ZTE, Lenovo entry into the lucrative smartphone market like India, Indonesia, Bangladesh, and other Asian countries.
Sony seems to be losing direction as far as targeted market is concerned. While premium buyers are lined up at Apple’s iStore and mid-budget buyers are having more option at Samsung, Motorola and LG’s counter and the Micromax with Xiaomi and other Indian Smartphones brands remains the ultimate choice for low budget customers.
