Sony has officially confirmed the existence of the Sony Xperia E5, which has been elected quite consistently in the last month.
The device was initially spotted on benchmark tests as the new Sony F3311, which was obviously an internal codename. However, there were doubts about the positioning of the device, especially since Sony seems to be altering its lineup in order to spice up sales. After the company recently killed off the Xperia Z series in favor of the Xperia X, Sony’s direction with regard to this phone remained a mystery.
The Japanese company has now confirmed the phone with an official post, which also gave the front and back design in its full glory. This mid-range smartphone will come with a 4.6 inch display and 720p resolution. This specification makes it ideal to compete alongside phones like the iPhone 5 SE, which has been criticized in some quarters for being too pricey. The official specifications of the phone are not out yet, but the benchmark tests showed that the phone will come with MediaTek’s MT6735 processor.
Aided by 1.5 GB of RAM, the Sony Xperia E5 should be good enough to run the Android Marshmallow with decent speeds. Its ability to handle high-end games with extreme graphics is rather doubtful. Users are likely to complain, given the pricing of device, which is likely to be budget friendly. Sony may have revealed the design of the Sony Xperia E5, but there has been no word on the pricing and the official release date and availability of the device. However, given that there have already been several teasers and the leaks of the Sony Xperia E5, it suggests that the launch date is approaching soon.
Sony, meanwhile, has announced the pricing of the Sony Xperia XA Ultra. The device will cost roughly the equivalent of $ 430 in the United Kingdom and is available for preorder. The Sony Xperia XA Ultra will be shipping from the last week of June.
The Sony Xperia XA Ultra is a phablet coming with a 6 inch display and full HD resolution. The Mediatek Helio P10 processor is supported by 3 GB of RAM, which enables the device to run the Android 6.0 Marshmallow in the best manner possible. The Sony Xperia XA Ultra will be available in regions like Canada from this summer onwards. The US release dates have still not been announced by Sony.
