Sony has debuted a new phone for the budget-conscious: the Xperia E5.
The Xperia E5 boasts up to two days of battery life per charge and runs Android Marshmallow.
“Forget about slow connections, or a Smartphone that runs out of steam before you do,” the company says on its website. “Xperia E5 delivers long-lasting, smooth performance and that all important ‘it just works’ experience.”
The device has a five-inch 720p HD display with a Quad-Core MTK6735 and 1.5GB of RAM
Internal storage is 16GB, but the handset comes with the ability to add up to 200 GB extra memory with a microSD card.
The device, like most, has a front and rear camera. In back is a 13MP camera with auto focus, HDR, integrated flash and clear image 3x zoom. The front camera is more basic at 5MP with an integrated flash.
“Xperia E5 makes it easier than ever to take stunning photos,” Sony says. “The 13-megapixel camera is simple to use and smart, with Auto Scene Recognition that automatically adjusts camera settings to suit your shot. And with the 5-megapixel front camera, your selfies are sure to be sharp.”
The device, which weighs in at 147g, comes in black or white.
Sony has yet to reveal the price for the Smartphone, although it is expected to be on the lower-end of the spectrum. It is expected to launch in select European, Latin American, Middle East and African markets late next month. It is not thought the device will be introduced to the North American market.
