Sony Xperia E3 4G Phone
The Sony Xperia E3 is an entry level smartphone with basic specs but a full suite of features, including 4G connectivity and a fairly large screen.
The Sony Xperia E3 is expected later this month with pricing yet to be confirmed. A full specification for the Sony Xperia E3 is detailed below.
Sony Xperia E3
Sony announced two big hitters at IFA 2014 in the form of the Xperia Z3 and the Xperia Z3 Compact but alongside them it also announced the rather more humble Xperia E3. This isn’t a phone that will wow your friends but nor is it one which will command a high price tag. Instead it’s focused on doing the basics and doing them well.
With a 1.2GHz quad-core Snapdragon 400 processor and 1GB of RAM it’s reasonably powerful, while its 4.6 inch IPS LCD display is a decent size, though only has a resolution of 480 x 854.
There’s just 4GB of built in storage but a microSD card slot with support for cards of up to 32GB can build on that and its 5 megapixel camera should be good enough for basic snaps as well as being able to film 1080p video at 30fps.
There’s also a surprisingly large 2330 mAh battery under the hood and it even supports 4G, while its body is a plastic version of the classic Xperia design. The bezels are large but the metal power button gives it a touch of class.
Sony Xperia E3 Release Date & Price on EE
EE has confirmed that it will be selling the Sony Xperia E3. It hasn’t given any release date for it but the handset can already be reserved in EE shops to ensure you can grab it as soon as it is available.
Expect it to come in at an affordable price when it lands on a range of 4GEE and 4GEE Extra plans and if you’d rather have it SIM free we wouldn’t be surprised if you’ll be able to pick it up for under £100, just like the Xperia E1 and the Motorola Moto E, though at worst we’d be surprised if it was more than £150, which would still make it highly affordable.
