Sony has introduced two new Android smartphones, adding them to the current lineup of its Xperia line of products. The device manufacturer yesterday unveiled Xperia E1, a music-focused handset, and Xperia T2 Ultra, a phablet-sized one equipped with a ‘smart social’ camera.
The company announced that both mobile devices not just operate on the popular Android. The two handsets also come in dual-SIM capabilities. They are unique in that two SIM cards could be set up and used independently at the same time. Since both SIMs would be active, switching for texts and voice calls between them would be much easier and faster.
Sony has indicated that it is yet to finally lose grip of its once popular Walkman technology. What is most outstanding about Xperia E1 is that it is music-focused. It has shake-to-shuffle controls, a dedicated music button (long press to launch), and two-mode speaker for better music listening experience.
The company describes this new smartphone as one that combines the best audio technologies of Sony with great hardware and premium design to create a mobile device for users who intend to express their selves out loud. As a new music focused player within the Xperia lineup, Xperia E1 touts the best display, design, and content that Sony offers.
The touchscreen measures 4 inches with resolution of 800 X 480 pixels. It also comes with Qualcomm dual-core, an application processor, 4GB of built-in storage, Cat 14 HSPA+-powered data speed, and 512MB of RAM.
Xperia T2 Ultra
Meanwhile, Xperia T2 Ultra has a 6-inch display assembled in a slim and light package. As another new Android smartphone, this one is particularly aimed at the emerging markets particularly in Asia, the Middle East, and Africa.
This new model would lead the category through combination of camera technologies and advanced display. It could also bring about large-screen entertainment portably and do more while maintaining a great value for money.
Aside from the large HD display, Xperia T2 Ultra also has the same music-playing and service capabilities of Xperia E1. What sets it aside is its pair of Exmor-aided cameras, which cap most of its main features. There is a 13-megapixel rear-facing camera in addition to a 1.1-megapixel camera at the front. The image and video capturing capabilities are tied up with the new smart social camera system to extend its functionalities.
