Sony has announced the Xperia E, an affordable addition to its Xperia smartphone range. The phone will run Android 4.1 and will be available in either single or dual SIM versions from the beginning of next year.
The Sony Xperia E is a compact and competitively priced smartphone that is engineered for simplicity. Xperia E boasts HD Voice quality that makes phone calls clearer than ever before. It also features noise cancellation that filters out background noise.
Xperia E has also been designed to let consumers stay on top of cost and power consumption. The data usage application monitors how much is being spent and the extended standby mode increases the standby time up to 4 times. When the screen has been in sleep mode for a few minutes, Wi-Fi and data traffic will be disabled and most applications will be inactive to save battery life. However, calling and messaging will continue to work as normal. Once you touch the screen to wake the device up from standby, all functions are back to normal.
It will also be available in a dual SIM version so that consumers can easily switch between tariffs with just one touch to stay on the most cost effective plan.
Xperia E comes equipped with the ‚”Walkman‚” application that includes xLoud audio technology, 3D surround sound and a manual equalizer. Consumers can also easily view and share their content on a TV, tablet and PC with DLNA wireless connectivity.
Xperia E will launch on Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean) for the latest Android user experience in Q1.
