The price cut on Xperia Z3 is interesting, as it is Sony’s latest flagship handset available in the market. The handset was launched in India last September for Rs 51,990 and was already available on e-commerce sites for Rs 44,990. After the price reduction, the handset will become available for under Rs 40,000.
