Sony brings Android Jelly Bean to the masses with the Xperia E

Posted on Dec 7 2012 - 7:57am by Erum Shakil

Sony has announced a new, budget Android phone called the Xperia E, and just in case anybody is confused over its position in the market, it has labelled it as the “no-nonsense Android smartphone.” That’s that cleared up, then. Keeping that in mind, don’t be expecting any mind-blowing spec details, but it does have one ace card to play.

The phone has a 3.5-inch touchscreen with a 320 x 480 pixel resolution, driven by a single-core, 1GHz Snapdragon MSM7227A processor, also known as the Snapdragon S1 which has been used in many modern Android phones such as the HTC Desire V and the LG Optimus L7. It’s backed up by a healthy 512MB of RAM, while on the rear of the phone is a 3.2-megapixel autofocus camera which can also shoot basic, VGA-quality video.

Thanks to the processor and RAM specs, the Xperia E comes with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean already installed, a big bonus on a device of this level, as lowly specs tend to mean older operating systems. The Xperia E will be joined by a dual-SIM version too, but this will have Android 4.0 as standard, with a 4.1 update coming in the future.
