Sony has released their new low-mid range E4 handset back in February this year. This MediaTek-powered handset was available for pre-order in Europe for quite some time now (since February), and this Japan-based company has just launched this thing in India. Sony has released a dual SIM variant of the Xperia E4 in India, the device is priced at Rs. 12,490 ($199). The handset is available starting today in Sony Stores and a number of major retailers across India. Sony did not reveal if they intend to release a single SIM version of this handset in India.
The Xperia E4 (Dual) features a 5-inch 960 x 540 IPS display along with 1GB of RAM and 8GB of internal storage (expandable via microSD card up to 32GB). This handset is powered by MediaTek’s MT6582 quad-core processor clocked at 1.3GHz which ships with Mali-400MP2 GPU for graphics rendering. 5-megapixel camera is located on the back of this handset and is flanked by an LED flash. 2-megapixel snapper is available up front for your selfie and video call needs. Android 4.4.4 KitKat comes pre-installed on this device with Sony’s custom UI on top of Google’s operating system. The Sony Xperia E4 doesn’t support 4G LTE connectivity, this is a 3G device. The handset measures 137 x 74.6 x 10.5mm and weighs 144 grams. 2,300mAh non-removable battery is also a part of the Xperia E4 package, and the company claims you’ll be able to get great battery life out of this handset.
The Sony Xperia E4 Dual will be available in White and Black color options according to the company. This handset will probably go head-to-head with Motorola’s Moto E (2015) handset in India, which sports similar set of specs, but is far cheaper than the Xperia E4, it costs almost half as much as Sony’s handset. This Japanese tech giant has been having issues pricing their low and mid-range devices in the past, that might be a part of the reason why their sales aren’t going as well as they should. Either way, let us know what you think about all this, we’d love to hear from you.
