The Sony Xperia E comes with a 3.5-inch HVGA touchscreen and single-core 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM7227A processor, 512MB of RAM, 4GB of internal storage and 1,500 mAh battery that can provide a talk time of up to 6.3 hours, or a stand-by time of up to 530 hours.
The storage can be expanded to up to 32 GB via microSD card. The smartphone also has a 3.2-megapixel back camera with auto-focus.
Sony Xperia E will run on Android 4.1 Jelly Bean but the Xperia E dual will come pre-loaded with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, and will be upgradable to Android 4.1.
Sony Xperia E will be available in black, white and pink colours whereas the Xperia E Dual will be seen only in black and gold.
Calum MacDougall, Director Xperia Marketing at Sony Mobile Communications said that “Consumers looking to take their first steps into the world of Xperia smartphones would be well advised to look at Xperia E or Xperia E dual. They are perfect for those seeking affordable access to the quality and functionality more traditionally associated with high-end Android smartphones.”
As of now Sony has given no signal on the pricing of this smartphone but has shared that it will be available in Q1 2013.
