Xperia E3 Fills in Sony's Mid-Range Roster
Alongside the Z3 family of devices, Sony today also announced the E3, a more modest handset for the budget-conscious buyer. The E3 uses the Omnibalance design language common to Sony's high-end phones, but dials down the materials. It uses a plastic frame, for example, rather than aluminum. The E3 has a 4.5-inch scratch-resistant display, 5-megapixel camera, a 1.2GHz quad-core processor with Adreno 305 graphics. It includes 1GB of RAM and 4GB of storage, with support for microSD cards. The front camera captures VGA images and video. The E3 runs Android 4.4 KitKat with Sony's branded apps, and comes in several colors. It will go on sale later this year.
