Xperia is the family of Sony smartphones. The line has been manufactured since 2008 and currently accounts for more than half of the company's mobile phone sales. The name Xperia is derived from the word "experience", and was first used in the Xperia X1 tagline.Get all the news related to xperia phones here atonce
The E dual, as the name suggests, has dual-SIM capability, but the rest of the specs sheet is more or less the same for both phones.
Both phones are up for pre-order now
Both have a 3.5-inch display with a 320 x 480 pixels resolution. That translates to a pixel density of 165 ppi. The SoC ticking inside the phones is Qualcomm MSM7227A Snapdragon with the single core clocked at 1GHz based on the older ARM Cortex-A5 cores. The Cortex-A5 is designed using the ARM v7 architecture and offers the advanced features of that particular architecture, including the ability to run the latest apps. Most apps nowadays are focussed and developed around the ARM v7 as support for earlier architectures has decreased. The CPU is coupled with 512 MB of RAM and Adreno 200 GPU.
Camera-wise, the Xperias E and E dual have a 3.2MP primary shooter on the back. Unfortunately, there’s no flash to help users in low-lit conditions. The front camera is a VGA unit and will be just about enough for basic video calling or checking your appearance. Internal storage is capped off at 4GB, but there is a microSD card slot on both handsets. Sony has loaded both devices with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, so performance should be decent while not exactly winning any benchmark awards.
Here is another look at some of the key specs of both devices:
3.5-inch TFT display with a resolution of 320 x 480 pixels
3G, HSPA, EDGE/GPRS
Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, DLNA, Wi-Fi hotspot
Bluetooth 2.1 with EDR
3.2 megapixel camera
4GB internal memory with support for microSD card
If you recall, Sony has also released a tool to install Mozilla’s Firefox OS on these phones. The OS is geared for low-end devices. The experimental build is available on the Sony website, but is said to be highly unstable and suitable only for developers. Users can try their hand at the new open source OS and flash back to original Sony firmware thanks to the tool.
