Sony Launches Xperia E1 and Xperia T2 Ultra, With Optional Dual-SIM Versions

Sony has been aggressive with its Android smartphones’ range of late, and the company has launched two more phones at two different price points. While the Xperia T2 Ultra is a phablet, the Xperia E1 is humbler sibling with a 4″ display and, hopefully, an appropriate price to go with it.

The Xperia T2 Ultra comes with a 6.0″ LCD display of HD resolution, with Sony’s Triluminos and Mobile¬†Bravia Engine 2 to enhance your viewing pleasure (after you’ve digested those fancy terms, that is). There’s a quad core Snapdragon processor under the display to keep things humming, and a 13 MP Exmor RS sensor on the back to let you capture good quality images and videos.

The Xperia E1 comes with a 4.0″ display and could be marking the comeback of the Walkman button from the Sony Ericsson days. The tiny (by today’s standards) 4.0″ display is an LCD one, with a resolution of 800×480 pixels. On the inside, there’s a 1.2 GHz dual core processor and 512 MB RAM.

  • 4.0″ LCD display, 800×480 pixels
  • 1.2 GHz dual core processor

The Xperia T2 Ultra and the Xperia E1 will both come in single and dual SIM variants, and while we do not know the price yet, expect the Xperia T2 Ultra to cost around Rs. 30,000 and the Xperia E1 around Rs. 15,000 in India. That should be about $450 and $250. It could be a bit higher than this, considering the fact that duties and other rates shoot up phones’ prices in India, but this is a safe estimate for now. No word on the availability yet.
