Sony adds Xperia E, Xperia T2 Ultra to Android portfolio
The 4-inch and 6-inch smartphones are introduced less than one week after CES
Sony on Tuesday added two new smartphones to its Android stable, introducing the Xperia E and Xperia T2 Ultra. Both run Android 4.3 Jelly Bean and offered with dual-SIM variants, the duo are bound for international markets.
The Xperia E1 features a 4-inch (480×800) display, a 3-megapixel rear camera, 4GB internal storage, and HSPA+ connectivity. In terms of power, the handset is equipped with a 1.2GHz dual-core Snapdragon 200 processor and 512MB RAM. Standout details include a loud 100db speaker and Sony’s WALKMAN controls.
Certainly not the sort of stuff that replaces your existing Android, no, but it’s the kind of device that makes for a good first smartphone. The Xperia E1, and its dual-SIM brother, will be offered in black, white, and purple; pricing and exact availability are unclear.
The Xperia T2 Ultra is considerably bigger at 6-inches (720p) and provides users with a 13-megapixel rear camera, 1.1-megapixel front-facing camera, and 8GB internal storage. Powered by a 1.4GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, there’s 1GB RAM, microSD expansion, 4G LTE connectivity, and a 3000mAh battery. Headed for China, Asia Pacific, Africa, and the Middle East, it’s akin to Samsung’s Galaxy Mega.
