Sony Added to Its Xperia Smartphone Series with The Entry Level Xperia

Sony has today announced a new addition to its Xperia smartphone series with the entry level Xperia E4.

The device follows on from last year’s Sony Xperia E3, a budget 4G blower that proffered a low mark-up but suffered due to its poor display and low-detail camera.

The new E4 touts a 5-inch 960 x 540 IPS display, up from the 4.5-inch screen of its predecessor.

Sony's new device comes ahead of MWC 2015, and lands as the firm's first smartphone launching this year.

The handset uses a 2300mAh battery, which Sony reckons will offer up to two days of battery life.

Sony’s low-spec blower runs off a 1.3GHz MediaTek MT6582 quad-core processor, which comes paired with 1GB of RAM and 8GB of built-in storage - there's a microSD slot to boot.

The rear camera sensors clocks in at a 5-megapixel resolution, and features HDR plus a host of Sony’s own camera apps – AR fun, Live on YouTube, and Timeshift burst, to name a few.

There’s also a 2-megapixel front-facing camera which, while not spectactular, will offer a budget provider of selfie goodness.

The handset runs Android 4.4.4 KitKat, and Sony's made no mention of an upgrade to Android 5.0 Lollipop thus far.

The phone is designed around Sony’s OmniBalance aesthetic, boasting a textured rear surface and a slim, curved profile.

Despite being an entry-level device, it maintains some of the premium design flairs seen on Sony’s flagship handsets, including the diamond-cut aluminium power button and the stainless steel camera ring.
