Just as we countdown to the official start of the MWC event in Barcelona, Sony has unveiled a new midrange smartphone known as the Xperia E4. It’s slightly out of the ordinary for a company to launch a handset this close to a major mobile event, but it seems like Sony doesn’t want to get mixed up with the barrage of devices that are expected to be shown off at the MWC.
The Xperia E4 is your run of the mill midrange handset and comes with a wide range of features to make it an attractive proposition for interested customers. Sony is claiming that the device has a two-day battery life, which is an interesting feature to have on a midrange handset.
The smartphone packs a 5 inch 960 x 540 resolution display, a 5-megapixel camera on the back, a 2-megapixel front camera, 1GB of RAM, a 1.3 GHz quad core processor of unknown make and a 2,300 mAh battery. The smartphone will be the first from the company to feature Android 5.0 out of the box, so it’s a very special device for the company.
Although the company has announced the handset, it is yet to officially give out pricing or availability related details.
