Looks like Sony has launched a new low-end phone. This new release targets people who don’t have enough money to buy the company’s flagship phone, Xperia Z3. Known as a budget device, Experia E4 comes with a large 5-inch display and a promise that its battery will last two whole days. An announcement made by Sony unveiled their new product.
Xperia E4 also comes with a 1.3GHz quad-core processor, a 960×540-pixel screen, 5-megapixel camera on the back and an 8GB of storage. E4 comes only in 3G, so those who are looking for a 4G LTE data speed are not in luck. Sony didn’t announced yet the price, but analysts presume that the device will be available at a really affordable cost. To be a real competitive phone, E4 will need to be around the 150 dollars mark, unlocked. Also, Sony didn’t revealed in which countries their new phone will be available.
Xperia E4 has a rounded back plastic body, with a minimalist Sony branding and a sticking-out power button. Specialists say that the 5-inch screen is quite large for a budget phone. The phone measures 136mm long, 10.5mm thick and 75mm wide. It is very slick, but it shouldn’t be too uncomfortable in users’ hands or into pockets. E4 will be available in two colors: white and black. This is not good news for many users, as it would have been really fun to have a larger range of color options on this phone, like on other Xperias, for example the lime green Xperia 3. The device has 8GB storage, from which 5GB are available for use and the rest is occupied by the Android software. It isn’t a problem, because there is a microSD card slot available, which accepts up to 32GB in size. This would be enough for the user to save music, videos, apps and photos.
The new device comes with Android 4.4.4 KitKat on board, not the latest version of Google’s mobile operating system, but it is decent. The features are sufficient to make the everyday basics satisfyingly, but for glossy gaming will be a little stretch. Experia E4 is perfect or Web browsing, social networking, messaging and editing photos.
