Sony Xperia E to be launched in the UK in February
Sony’s latest Android smartphone, the Xperia E, will seemingly debut in the UK starting February 2013.
The Carphone Warehouse says this is the month when it will have the new Xperia in stock. The retailer doesn’t say how much the handset will cost though.
Officially unveiled by Sony last week, the Xperia E will run Android 4.1 Jelly Bean from day one – unlike all of the company’s other smartphones introduced this year, which come with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich (upgradable to Jelly Bean, of course).
Alongside Android 4.1, the handset features a 3.5 inch HVGA (480 x 320) display, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, DLNA, HSPA, GPS, xLOUD audio technology, Sony Music Unlimited, active noise cancellation, 3.2MP rear camera, a Qualcomm MSM7227A Snapdragon single-core processor clocked at 1GHz, 4GB of internal memory, MicroSD card support (up to 32GB), and a 1,530 mAh battery (for a talk-time of up to 6 hours). The device measures 113.5 x 61.8 x 11 mm, and weighs 116 grams.
The Xperia E has a dual SIM version, called Xperia E Dual. There is no word if this is going to be available in the UK, but we’ll let you know if it happens. In any case, both versions should be released in various markets across Europe and Asia early next year.
