Sony has announced a new affordable smartphone, the Xperia E5. The Xperia E5 features a 5-inch HD display at the front, with a MediaTek MT6735 64-bit SoC clocked at 1.3GHz under the hood. The phone runs Android 6.0 Marshmallow out of the box and is priced at 199 Euro. Availability will begin in late June in Europe, Latin America, the Middle East, and Africa.
Other specs include a 1.5GB RAM, 16GB of internal storage, a microSD slot, a 13-megapixel rear camera, a 5-megapixel front camera, dual SIM slots, and 4G LTE connectivity. The device is powered by a 2,700 mAh battery, with Sony’s usual promise of up to two days of battery life. Color options for the handset include graphite black and white, which are considerably less when compared to other recent Sony phones that have hit the market.
