Not an accident this time: Sony unveils the mid-range Xperia E5
Last week, we got an accidental glimpse of an upcoming Sony Xperia E5 – a rumored midranger, with an unknown release date got posted on Sony Mobile's Facebook page only to be pulled moments later – obviously a mishap, but a teaser none the less. Well, today, the E5 is officially unveiled, with its own page on the Sony website.

So, the Xperia E5 rocks a 5-inch display with a 720x1280 pixel resolution, a MediaTek MTK6735 SoC, 1.5 GB of RAM, and 16 GB of expandable memory. Its main camera has a 13 MP sensor and is capable of HDR photography, while the selfie snapper has a 5 MP resolution and is assisted by a front-facing LED flash. Its software is based on Android 6 Marshmallow and, based on the promotional photos, we can see Sony's new UI, which we've seen teased on the upcoming Xperia XA and Xperia X lines.

The E5 will be hitting select markets in Europe, Latin America, Middle East, and Africa, with no word on a US launch at this time. In Europe, the handset will cost around $223 (€200).
