In addition to the Sony Xperia Z1S and the Xperia Z1 Compact unveiled last week at Consumer Electronic Show 2014, Sony also announced the Xperia E1 along with the phablet T2 Ultra. Just like the Xperia T2 Ultra, the Xperia E1 will be aimed at customers in emerging markets such as China, the Middle East, Africa and the Asia Pacific. Much smaller and more modest than the phablet, the Sony Xperia E1 most likely will be an affordable offering.
Sony Xperia E1 best smartphone in its class…
Advertised as “best smartphone in its class”, the Sony Xperia E1 focuses primarily on audio experience which builds on Walkman technology. To make access to your music as easy as possible, Sony added a dedicated Walkman button and shake-to-shuffle controls.
The 100 dB loudspeaker on the back is allegedly capable of sounding louder than a motorcycle. Add to all these ClearAudio+ mode and xLOUD optimization and you get a music device lie any other currently available on the market. If it is not enough, the Xperia E1 will come with a 30-day pass for Sony’s Entertainment Network music streaming service.
Other specs are somewhat less exciting, but the Xperia E1 is not designed to impress you with super-powerful processor or out-of-this-world screen. The phone is powered by a 1.2 GHz dual-core Snapdragon 200 processor and sports a 4-inch display with 800 x 480 resolution.
Other features include 512 MB of RAM, 4 GB of internal memory, microSD slot for storage expansion, a 1700mAh battery and Cat 14 HSPA+ connectivity. Like the Xperia T2 Ultra, the E1 also will be available with dual-SIM support.
