Sony to announce Xperia E3 at IFA 2014?

by XB on 1st September 2014

in Rumours, Xperia E3

Xperia logoIn two days’ time, Sony will reveal three new devices – that much is pretty certain. These new products are likely to be the Xperia Z3, Xperia Z3 Compact and Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact. There is compelling evidence from what we have seen over the last few months that these mobile devices will be announced for sure on Wednesday 3 September.

However, another entry-level model number that has been outed recently is the Sony D22XX (D2202, D2212, D2203, D2243). There is a possibility that Sony could also announce this model later this week, but obviously without the prominence of the flagship ‘Z3’ products.

9to5Google says that Sony will announce a new budget model in the form of the Xperia E3. It points to specs including a 1.2 GHz quad-core Snapdragon 400 chipset, 1.5 to 2GB of RAM (which we think is very unlikely) and will sport a 4.8-inch (720 x 1280) display. This would mean a larger display against the phones predecessors – the Xperia E had a 3.5-inch display, whilst the Xperia E1 had a 4-inch display. We will wait to see whether this is part of Sony’s IFA line-up, not too long to find out.

Thanks Niek!

    i doubt that E3 will have better specs than M2?

    “We’ve also heard that the Z3 will feature new software caching enhancements that will keep the device powered for up to 2 days on a single charge.”

    My Z2 does that already with GPS, Wi-Fi, LTE always on and often Bluetooth for my smartband.

  • Camilo Uribe

    My Z2, one and a half day but Bluetooth for SBH52. Proud owners ! haha
    I think Z3 is for more of two days, with Stamina I guess.

    This sounds like an SP2 rather than an E3 to me. 720p seems too much for an E series Xperia. Just my two cents.
    Edit: the model number is that of a low range phone, it is a little confusing.

  • luqman_98

    Redmi 1S or Redmi Note?

  • shanefalco

    4.3″ 854×480 as galaxy s2

  • Madhu PV

    I was expecting Xperia C – a “CyberShot” phone,…
    but Sony introduced it as a “Cheap” phone :D :P

  • Xiaomi Troll

    Redmi A-SS

  • ShinOrochiX

    Way to go Sony, not only do you kill off flagships in the same year but also budget devices. RIP Xperia E1. :-/

    Xperia SP KITKAT better be coming soon, otherwise Moto G 4G is my next phone.

    It obviously isn’t SP2 ! I think SP2 will have a 8 mp sensor. Besides, Snapdragon 400 quadcore 1.2 Gz is inferior to Xperia SP’s dual core 1.7 Ghz cpu and adreno 320 gpu. So its safe to say it isn’t SP2 !!!

  • Shakhawat Hossain

    I think it’s a Z2 labeled as Z3 :D

  • Shakhawat Hossain

    What ? You think budget users don’t have the right to beautiful metal frames ? Only riches do ? God i hate you right now !

  • Shakhawat Hossain

    They don’t think like we normally think ! Just look at the M2 ! Original M -> 4.0 inch display and M2 -> 4.8 inch display !
