Sony accidentally revaled the Xperia E5


With the midrange market offerings getting better each year, buying a flagship is not always necessary. Recently Lenovo introduced the Moto G 4th Generation and now it’s Sony’s turn – this is the Xperia E5.

[notification type=”alert-warning” close=”false” ]Update: The Sony Xperia E5 has already been announced. Some of the info below might not be accurate.[/notification]

The images recently found on Sony’s social media (they have been deleted since) show a decently looking plastic device. The design is similar to that of the recently announced Xperia X but it obviously doesn’t feature the premium built of it’s more expensive brother. The Xperia is made of matt plastic, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing. The device is still very minimalistic and good looking. It features a slight curve on the back, making it easier to hold. The phone does not feature a fingerprint scanner and unfortunately the physical camera button has been removed. On the front is the typical Sony logo, the sensors, the selfie camera, a 4,6″ display and a speaker, most probably the only one in this device.

The Xperia E5 will most probably feature a MediaTek MT6735 processor backed up with 1,5GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage, probably with SD card support. The 4,6″ display will have a resolution of 720p, which on a screen of this size will be perfectly acceptable. The smartphone will feature a 16MP main camera and a 5MP selfie shooter.

The device will be running Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow out of the box. It’s nice to see the newest Xperia UI from the Xperia X on a midrange device.

With this being just a leak, the price is still unknown. If Sony wants the new device to be an alternative to for example the Moto G4 Play, the company can’t set a high price point which, taking into account the mid-range specs of the Xperia E5, probably won’t happen.

What do you think of the Xperia E5? Can it beat the Moto G4 Play? Let us know in the comments below!
