Sony announces the affordable Xperia E4g with LTE connectivity on board


Earlier last month, Sony unveiled the Xperia E4 entrant, an entry-level device that flashed what might end up being Sony's refreshment of its OmniBalance design language (if it decides to stick to churning out smartphones, that is). The humble low-end device came with no LTE on board, but today Sony rights that wrong as it has just announced the Xperia E4g.

Design- and specs-wise, the Xperia E4g is similar to the Xperia E4. Some of the few differences between the two devices are the chipset (a 64-bit quad-core MediatTek MT6732 chipset clocked at 1.5GHz) and just as we mentioned, the LTE connectivity on board of the newcomer. 

The Xperia E4g also comes with a smaller display - a 4.7-inch display with a resolution of 540 x 960 pixels. Naturally, this leads to different dimensions (133 x 71 x 10.8 mm for the E4g vs 137 x 74.6 x 10.5 mm for the E4).


Similar to the Xperia E4, the Xperia E4g won't make be sold in the USA. It will launch in other markets starting this April, with a price tag gravitating near the €129 mark (~$145) before taxes and rebates. Similar to the Xperia E4, the Xperia E4g will also have a dual-SIM version.

Not bad at all. Pretty decent overall actually. Wait. Does "52 scenarios" mean better Superior Auto in the future (as in broader scene selection)?!

the fact that sony sounded that its mobile division can be sold is a turn-off for me and not helping the division's slumping performance at all. so people will be more discouraged to buy, and will think "so what about future updates etc etc.".

tbh not a lot people even know that software in their phones can be updated to a newer version. If I ask my friends something like "what android version do you have?" their answers are usually like - "Samsung", or "HTC".
