Sony Xperia T2 Ultra and E1 prices allegedly revealed


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.

As much as i like Sony, they shouldnt bother with a US release. People here care too much about trends or whats cheap.

If you're referring to iPhones and Galaxies, all I can say is people pick the phones for a reason: they're great for most people.

I am, and youre right. But people buy them for the commercials and because their friends have them. Not because theyre good. Sony's, LG's and HTC's are just as good but struggle here.

I don't hate on iphones or Samsung. but a HTC or Sony device doesn't lose out on functionality compared with galaxy or iPhone.

and what could an iphone user possibly need? anything the iphone actully DOES (ex. music production, camera augmentation, Facebook? (LMAO), apps for Autistic children to communicate like never thought possible) MOST ppl dont even use the damn thing for !!!! the "needs" icrap phone users is to waste time on instagram n social media, not minding their own Gosh damn business in the first place, n to play games. its a DAMN TOY PapaSmurf !!!! y bother being in both camps??? all an iphone does is WASTE TIME

Clearly you have issues. Accept the fact that the iPhone is the best selling series of devices in history. People don't want 5" or 5.7" displays. There's a reason why Apple continues to sell more than it's predecessor, and that's because they know what they're doing. I love both iOS and Android, so does that make me a bad person?

They're more functional than any other high end android phone? No. Not that theyre arent good devices, nevertheless.

They don't want a big phone... Completely satisfied with the iPhone 5 or 5C.

$179 for the E1 when the Moto G is in the same price range but offers more...

That's in the US where the E1 will likely not be available. In Europe the E1 should be below €150 and thus about €50 less than a Moto G. Motorolas are not dead cheap in Europe s they are in the US.

The E1 uses a low end processor, 400x854 display, smaller battery, and camera. It'll likely never receive an update, which imo doesn't make it worth the money.

the extra 50 euros actually matter to people. most people outside the US actually care about the money they spend because they don't get US prices. moto g should cost more than 260 dollars when it arrives in my country while the e1 will probably cost about 190. that's a lot to us

How good is the camera of T2? Does it have an OIS? Is the camera better than Xperia Z? Does it have metal body? I am looking for a big screen Sony handset for my mom and wife. Xperia Z Ultra is a joke.

1. No 2. No 3. No Z Ultra puts this phone to complete shame.

... except for the camera. I think T2's camera is better. 13 mp with flash >> 8 mp without flash. Note: I don't own them.

Don't expect much on this phablet because it is just a midranger.
