Sony has announced Sony Xperia E1 affordable smartphone in Indian smartphone market along with a dual SIM variant of the smartphone too. The Sony Xperia E1 will goes on sale on March 25 while Sony Xperia E1 dual will be available from 10 March in Indian market. The smartphone has pretty decent specifications at this price point. Both comes with a Dual core processor from Snapdragon and Android 4.3 Jelly Bean operating system. The smartphone’s design is similar to the Sony Xperia M and has same Walkman buttons too on sides. At the back there is a Sony logo along with Xperia logo at bottom. The smartphone is announced in Black, White and Purple color. The smartphone was announced in January this year and Sony has confirmed it now.
The one thing we do not like in a smartphone is its low RAM. Sony Xperia E1 has only 512MB RAM. Although it’s running on Android 4.3 Jelly Bean operating system which is smoother and fast enough than previous versions of Android. We hope that with Dual core processor from Snapdragon clocking at 1.2GHz and a graphics processor from Adreno 302 , this smartphone will be capable of running any kind of applications and large number of games too.
There is a 3-megapixel camera at back of smartphone with no LED flash as it is a budget smartphone. There is not front camera as well. It has 4GB internal storage so that you can install sufficient applications and games. There is a 32GB memory card support as well where you can store your all of video and songs. As Sony’s smartphones does not support App to SD functionality 4GB of internal storage will be a big disappointment for those users who usually installs the large number of applications and games on their devices.
On the connectivity front, it has 2G, 3G, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.0 along with GPS support for maps. There is 1700mAh battery packed with the smartphone similar specs again as we have seen it on Xperia M already.
