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.
