Unannounced Sony Xperia E4 poses next to the Xperia Z1 Compact
First spotted last week, the unannounced Sony Xperia E4 today appeared in a set of new leaked photos. This time, the handset - which will replace the Xperia E3 - gets compared to the Sony Xperia Z1 Compact.

Since the E4 sports a 5-inch (540 x 960 pixels) display, but it has pretty thin bezels, it’s not noticeable larger than the Z1 Compact (which has a 4.3-inch screen).

According to Polish website Teleguru, the Xperia E4 that we can see in the images below is a prototype, but the final version shouldn’t be different.

Besides a 5-inch qHD display, the new Xperia seemingly features a 5 MP rear camera with LED flash, 1.9 MP front-facing camera, 1 GB of RAM, and 8 GB of expandable storage space. The handset is powered by a quad-core 1.3 GHz MediaTek MT6582 processor, and will reportedly run Android 4.4.4 at launch - though an update to Lollipop should be available shortly after its release.

Apparently, Sony intends to announce the Xperia E4 at MWC 2015, and launch it later in March. The new smartphone could cost around $200. Take a look at it in the slideshow below, and let us know if you’re looking forward to checking it out in real life.

This looks like Sony paid an other company to do this phone for them and thus they can sell it cheaper. Dunno though.

what a waste this phone is... that processor is now over used and outdated . it has been replaced by mt6732

this could have turned out to be a good phone had it sported mt6732 chipset..

l think the GPU is a downgrade, Mali-400 MP2 is weaker than Adreno 305 from the predecessor.

It looks ugly and it will flop. They should change all of the members of the mobile division, not just the president

They trimmed down the bezel but then increase the thickness of the phone
damn it i'd rather have wider phones than thicker phone

There is sony logo, so it might not be sony. Some chinese company might copy the power button and made a phone. That does not mean it is a sony phone.

Sony budget phones suck, 8gb memory will leave you with about 4gb user available memory. I was just about to buy an xperia t2 ultra until I saw that the on board storage was 8gb. Rather buy another Moto G 2nd Gen
