Sony's dual SIM Xperia E4 will have almost the same price as the single SIM variant
While Sony hasn't released the Xperia E4 yet, we know that the handset is coming soon (possibly before the end of the month in some markets). Not long ago, we told you that the single SIM variant of the smartphone would cost around $155 in the UK, and now we have info regarding the price of the dual SIM model.

Sony took to Twitter to reveal the official prices of the E4 in Russia: the single SIM variant will cost 10,490 RUB (around $168), while the dual SIM version will be only a tad more expensive: 10,990 RUB (about $176). That's good news for anyone who needs an extra SIM card slot inside a new, affordable handset.

Announced last week, the Xperia E4 is the successor to last year's Xperia E3, though this isn't reflected in its design. The new Xperia has thin bezels, thus, despite the fact that it sports a 5-inch (540 x 960 pixels) display, it's not taller than, say, Apple's 4.7-inch iPhone 6.

Powered by a quad-core 1.3 GHz MediaTek processor, the Xperia E4 will run Android KitKat at launch, with an update to Android Lollipop expected to arrive sometime later. The handset features a 2 MP front-facing camera, a 5 MP rear camera, 1 GB of RAM, 8 GB of expandable storage space, and a 2300 mAh battery.

Not that the so-called premium brands are not relevant below $200. But they really need to play the specifications and pricing game very carefully. On paper, a SD400 equivalent yet much cheaper SoC running device from Sony makes a lot of sense but they really did need to be aggressive with the price. They are playing it safe, which would have been okay if it was '14 or '13 but right now the market for this price category is severely competitive and I'm not sure if the E4 finds any place in it. Not at $160.

Sony needs more aggressive pricing. Better specs too.
