Today Japanese manufacturer Sony officially announced the Xperia E4, an entry-level handset based on Android 5.0 Lollipop. As the name implies, the Xperia E4 is an updated version of the Xperia E3, a smartphone that the company launched back in September 2014.
Probably the main change brought by the Xperia E4 compared to its predecessor is a new design, a revised Omnibalance design language that integrates rounded corners for a more playful overall aesthetic. The smartphone measures 137 x 75 x 10.5 mm at a weight of 144 grams.
The 5-inch display has a resolution of 960 by 540 pixels, while the processing power is offered by an entry-level MediaTek MT6582 SoC, a chip that features a quad-core ARM Cortex A7 CPU and a Mali-400MP2 GPU. As far as the memory is concerned, the Xperia Z4 comes with a single GB of RAM and 8GB of integrated (and microSD expandable) storage space.
Other specs include 3G compatibility, a 5MP primary camera, a 2MP secondary sensor, Bluetooth 4.1, and an FM radio. All of these hardware components are powered by a 2300 mAh battery, one that should provide a talk time of about 13 hours. According to the manufacturer, the E4's battery can last more than 48 hours when using the handset as a music player.
At the moment Sony has yet to announce pricing details for the Xperia Z4. Chances are that the exact price tag will vary between individual countries and regions.
