Sony surprised us earlier today with the introduction of two new Android devices: the very large 6-inch Xperia T2 Ultra (pictured above), and the 4-inch Xperia E1. The Japanese company did not say how much the handsets would cost, although it suggested that they’d be affordable.
Until the two become available, Xperia Blog seems to have gotten hold of their prices for Europe. Reportedly, the recommended retail price for the entry-level Xperia E1 will be $174 (€129) in Belgium, going up to around $203 (€149) in Germany. Its dual SIM edition, properly named Xperia E1 Dual, might have similar prices. As for the quad-core Xperia T2 Ultra, this should cost about $545 (€399) across Europe.
Like most of Sony’s recent smartphones, the Xperia T2 Ultra and Xperia E1 will be available in three color versions: black, white and purple. Both should be launched in the coming months, unfortunately running Android 4.3 Jelly Bean (although updates to 4.4 KitKat are likely going to be rolled out at some point).
Sony didn’t confirm if the Xperia T2 Ultra and Xperia E1 are slated for a US release. But we’ll keep an eye on this and let you know if any of them arrives Stateside.
