Sony Announces Xperia T2 Ultra 6-inch Smartphone and Xperia E1


xperia t2Just a week after the announcement of the Xperia Z1 Compact and Xperia Z1s, Sony takes the wraps off two new devices, the Xperia T2 Ultra and Xperia E1.

The Xperia T2 Ultra is a mid-range giant, packing a 6-inch 720p display. Its design is a mixture of Sony Xperia T’s back and Sony Xperia Z’s front, though the T2 Ultra is obviously a lot bigger than both of them. Under the hood it packs the quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor clocked at 1.4GHz, 1GB RAM and 8GB storage that can be further expanded to 64GB maximum via the microSD card slot found on-board. Its rear camera is 13MP, while its front-facing sensor is only 1.1MP.

Sony Xperia E1 on the other hand, is a small device by any means. It features a 4-inch WVGA display built onto a small, compact body. It has the dual-core Snapdragon 200 processor under the hood, which is accompanied by 512MB RAM, 4GB storage and a microSD card for storage expansion. Sony touts the Xperia E1 as a media-centric device, that’s helped by the large speaker on its back with maximum output of 100Db.

Both of these smartphones run on Android 4.3 Jellybean and will come in single-SIM and dual-SIM versions. They are targeted to the emerging markets in Africa, the Middle East, China and the Asia Pacific rim. No word whether Sony will release them in Europe and America or not.
