Sony has been taking huge steps to garner decent market share across the globe with its Z and X series phones, which usually carry a hefty price tag. Its current flagship, Xperia X, has received little interest in India as compared to how Sony stood in previous years.  But there are a lot of hopes pinned on its upcoming flagship, Xperia XZ, which was announced at IFA 2016.

With its refreshing design, flagship hardware, exemplary camera, it would definitely give a tough competition to Samsung S7, HTC 10, and LG G5.
