Sony has unveiled the Xperia E4g, which is essentially a marriage between the recently announced Xperia E4 and LTE connectivity. Think of this announcement much like how Motorola handled the Moto G and its LTE variant. The Xperia E4g will ship in April for €129.
Interestingly, Sony still boasts a battery life of around two days, even with the more power hungry LTE. While the company failed to reveal the specifications of this new device (aside from the quad-core 1.5 GHz processor and 2,300mAh battery), you can expect to see similar components as the Xperia E4, which comes with 1GB of RAM, 8GB of internal storage, and a 5-MP rear shooter (and 2-MP for the front).
As noted above, the Xperia E4g will ship in black and white this April for €129.
London, 24th February 2015 – Earlier this month, Sony Mobile Communications ("Sony Mobile") introduced Xperia E4; the affordable, easy-to-use smartphone with great battery life – in a quality Sony design. Now, Sony unveils the exciting Xperia™ E4g smartphone, offering the same ease-of-use and powerful battery performance – with fast 4G LTE connectivity.
"Xperia E4 set out to bring many of the premium features people expect of Sony to lower-tier devices; Xperia E4g brings that same quality and ease of use – but with super-fast 4G LTE connectivity" said Tony McNulty, Vice President, Value Category Business Management at Sony Mobile Communications. "With simple set-up and unrivalled 2 day battery life, we believe both models represent value for those who want premium Sony technology and experiences often only associated with high-end devices."
