Sony Xperia XZ Goes on Sale in India at Rs. 49,990

Sony India as promised on Tuesday kicked off the sale of its flagship smartphone, the Xperia XZ, in the country. Priced at Rs. 49,990, the Sony Xperia XZ is now available to buy via Amazon India and retail stores across the country. The new Sony flagship was unveiled late last month, and comes with an MRP of Rs. 51,990. Customers who pre-booked the smartphone will get a free Sony SWR30 SmartBand worth Rs. 8,990 with their Xperia XZ unit.

The biggest highlight of the Xperia XZ is its three rear camera sensors. According to Sony, the CMOS sensor can track and predict movement of objects in frame, reducing the chances of blurred shots. The smartphone also packs a laser autofocus sensor which makes the camera better at locking focus on objects, especially in low-light conditions; and the RGBC-IR sensor aims to provide accurate colour reproduction. All this is backed by the 6-element f/2.0 Sony G lens, and a 23-megapixel Exmor RS sensor as well as Sony's own 'Bionz for mobile' image processor. You now also get manual control over focusing and shutter speed.
Sony claims the 13-megapixel wide-angle front camera packs an Exmor RS sensor that's 2.6 times bigger than the selfie camera seen on "regular flagship phones". The phone is IP68 certified, making it dust and water resistant. The 5.2-inch full-HD display features Corning Gorilla Glass 4 protection. The Sony Xperia XZ variant launching in India is a hybrid dual-SIM unit, with support for 4G VoLTE on both SIMs. Additionally, this model comes with 64GB of inbuilt storage, compared to 32GB seen on the single-SIM variant. The Snapdragon 820-powered Sony Xperia XZ packs in 3GB of RAM, features USB Type-C connectivity, and is powered by a 2900mAh battery. The Xperia XZ was initially unveiled at IFA 2016.

Here’s why fewer two-hero films are made in Bollywood today

Shahid Kapoor will be seen alongside Ranveer Singh in Padmavati, and with Saif Ali Khan in Rangoon.

Movies that feature two lead stars have been a winning proposition right from the start. Films such as Andaz (1949), Sholay (1975), Deewaar (1975), Shaan (1980), Saagar (1985), Ram Lakhan (1989), Andaz Apna Apna (1994), Karan Arjun (1995) and Dostana (2008), which starred several big actors, are testimony to the fact. However of late, two-hero films have become a rarity.
