Sony announces Xperia E - affordable Android with HD Voice
posted by Ray S. / Dec 05, 2012, 4:00 AM
When it comes to specs, the Xperia E will deliver a mid-range experience with its 3.5" HVGA (320 x 480 pixels) touchscreen and 1GHz processor. Let's hope that Jelly Bean's Project Butter will help get rid of the lag. Sony also claims that we'll be surprised by the battery life of the device. The 1500 mAh battery will benefit from a special extended stand-by mode designed to increase overall battery life. Basically, when the phone's sleeping, it will disable all functions except for calling and messaging, and once you wake it up, all functions will be restored to their normal state. Of course, users will be able to enjoy Sony's "Walkman" music experience, as well as the xLOUD sound technology, which works really well in most Sony smartphones.
The Android 4.1-powered Xperia E is scheduled to launch in Q1 2013 in both single-SIM and dual-SIM variants.
- Display 3.5" 320 x 480 pixels
- Camera 3.2 MP
- Processor Qualcomm Snapdragon S1, Single core, 1000 MHz
- Storage 4 GB + microSDHC
- Battery 1500 mAh(6.3h 3G talk time)

Android 4.1 runs on 1 GHz single core processor with 512 MB ram compared to WP8 and IOS 6.so android is not hardware hungry if optimised properly.

agree.. sony is one of the best phone maker when it comes to optimazation. i have an xperia P and note 2. Xperia P works really good for a dual core, note 2 can be fluid thanks to quad core but still suffer on some lag. cant wait for the 5.0in flagship with/without quadcore, im happy.

No there are some reasons...Just like Intel has a lot quad cores...But every one of them are not same...This 1 GHz Cpus are lot more different than 2011 lineup...

Mr.AbdulGhafoor, Xperia arc or arc s are Sony ericsson phones. It's generous of sony to give ICS update. Sony are struggling to give Xperia S jelly bean. It's not as you think.

That's not even a legit excuse. So what you're sayin' is since they were both a S/E phone, SONY is not oblige to support it software wise? And we should be thankful that they updated it to ICS even though they broke up with Ericsson? Are they not oblige to do so? The older SGS2 (older that ArcS) is even getting JB anytime soon so I see no legit excuse from them to screw up their loyal (used to be) customers.

Isn't it similar to Xperia J in almost every aspect right from design to hardware specs?
