Sony has added one more Android-based smartphone to its impressive lineup. The company has just announced the new Xperia E, an affordable phone running on Android Jelly Bean. The announcement was well timed to match Nokia’s announcement of the Lumia 620.
The Xperia E will have a 3.5-inch touchscreen with a resolution of 320X480 pixels. Powering the phone would be a 1 GHz single-core processor. We do not know how well the phone would be able to run Android 4.1 with such low processing power, but knowing Sony, we know that they will make it happen. The phone will have a 1500 mAh battery, giving it adequate power to browse, check e-mails, play games, and explore more of Android for at least one full day on a single charge.
Sony is expected to offer a dual-sim version too of the Xperia E. The phone will hit the markets by early 2013 and will be available in three color options – black, white and pink. The Xperia E will also be rich in features like DLNA connectivity, HD Voice and Sony’s Xloud audio technology.
