The Xperia family keeps growing with new models, as now Sony has introduced its latest model of smartphone, the Xperia E.
This new phone is a mid-range unit that will be released during the first quarter of 2013. Its outward appearance follows along the lines of the Xperia range, this means that it is a slim phone with rounded lines. The outer dimensions are 113 x 61 x 11mm on the new Xperia E and its weight is around 115 grams.
Let’s talk about its specifications, the new phone from Sony includes a 3.5inch TFT screen with a resolution of 320×480 pixels, the processor is a Qualcomm MSM7227A Snapdragon 1GHz and has 512MB RAM. The operating system incorporated is the Android Ice Cream Sandwich and the phone also offers the possibility of expanding its internal memory via a micro SD card.
The main camera on this Xperia E is a 3.2 MegaPixel, something not so great considering existing models on the market now often include at least 5 MegaPixel Cameras, but it offers an autofocus system that improves quality. The phone can also record video in VGA quality. The Xperia E will go on sale with three external shells available in red, white and black.
Possibility of Dual SIM
Sony also wanted to think of those users who wish to make use of two Sims on a single phone with the release of Xperia E Dual, a unit that incorporates the same features that we have detailed with the basic Xperia E, but it can hold two SIMs simultaneously. The Xperia E Dual will be sold in gold and black variations of finish.
We’ll see where these new phones end up located in the market when launched, but as often happens with the midrange releases, it all depends on the operators with which they can launch the phone and the price point they offer (and whether that price will be subsidised or not).
