Sony Xperia E1 Dual Now Available


Sony unveiled its latest affordable dual-SIM Android-powered smartphone, the Xperia E1, at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas back in January and now, with no official announcement, the handset is available to buy from Infibeam, an independent electronics retailer in India, for 9,899 INR — which equates to approximately $162, with a free pair of Sony MDR-ZX110A headphones thrown in.

In terms of specification the low-to-mid range smartphone packs a 4-inch TFT capacitive touchscreen with a resolution of 480 x 800 pixels, a Qualcomm MSM8210 Snapdragon 200 chipset powered by two 1.2GHz Cortex-A7 central processing units, 512MB of RAM, 4GB of internal storage (expandable up to 32GB via microSD), an Adreno 302 GPU, a 3.15-megapixel rear-facing camera equipped with optical image stabilization and a 1,750 mAh non-removable Li-Ion battery.

Straight out of the box the E1 runs the latest build of Android 4.3 Jelly Bean with Sony’s X-Reality custom user interface plastered over the top, but its rumored to be receiving the much-anticipated 4.4.2 KitKat upgrade in the not-too-distant future.

At present, the handset is only available to purchase in black, purple and white, but the pink, lime and yellow colorways are expected to touchdown in India within the next couple of weeks.
