Sony announces the Xperia E5 smartphone

Sony has presented a new smartphone that has been designed for people who need a communicator but do not wish to spend too much money on one. The device is called Xperia E5 and brings everything essential a smartphone must have plus a wallet-friendly price.

The Xperia E5 has been built around a 5-inch display that works at 720p HD resolution and that offers 294 pixels per inch. Interestingly, the new handset does not come with a Qualcomm chipset – instead it has MediaTek’s quad-core MT6735 processor that runs at 1.3 GHz. The device also has 1.5 GB of RAM, Mali-T720 MP2 graphics, a 13 MP rear camera and a 5 MP front camera for selfie-lovers plus 16 GB of internal memory that can be expanded via a microSD card (up to 200 GB). The handset is powered by a 2700 mAh battery that should last for up to 2 days and sits inside a chassis that is just 8.2 mm thick. Needless to say, the Xperia E5 also offers technologies such as Wi-Fi, NFC and LTE.

Unfortunately for our readers from the US, the Xperia E5 will hardly visit your shores simply because the device has been designed for emerging markets in Europe, the Middle East, Latin America and Africa. With a price of around USD 220 or EUR 199, depending on where you live, this is understandable. The Sony Xperia E5 will also be available in two colors – White and Graphite Black.
