Xperia E4g announced: Think of it as an Xperia E4 with 4G LTE

Xperia E4gSony has announced a variant of the Xperia E4 called the Xperia E4g (E2003, E2006, E2053), which will include 4G LTE support. The Xperia E4g has a smaller 4.7-inch qHD display, versus the 5-inch qHD display on the Xperia E4. The Xperia E4g is therefore a smaller handset, but marginally thicker at 10.8mm (Xperia E4: 10.5mm).

Other small changes include the addition of NFC and a higher processor clock speed of 1.5GHz quad-core (versus 1.3GHz on the original). The new handset will be available in both single SIM and dual SIM (Xperia E4g Dual (E2033, E2043)) variants. It is due to launch in April 2015 for €129 and will be available in black and white colours.

  • spatch72

    What? Another smartphone announcement prior to MWC? What is going on? Why isn’t this phone the E4? Did it need a variant after a week of existence? SONY!!!!!!!!

  • naru

    Sony have done a good job with this phone. A real competitor to Moto E & G! And I thing they have gotten rid of Superior Auto mode haha! Very excited for Z4.

  • naru

    New Auto mode!? finally

  • Abdul Ghani

    that auto mode was always there for low end phones

  • xperia gaga

    actually it’s the older (than the Superior Auto+) Auto mode that’s on most Sony cameras from years ago
    but some still prefer this one over the Superior Auto + one

  • Xperia Gaga

    sorry, it’s Superior Auto without the +

  • Xperia Gaga

    different markets need different version
    for example in America people needs phones to have LTE connectivity when in some Asian country they dont

  • Pavan Champion C

    What is auto model can u tell me plz?

  • Pavan Champion C

    Wat is auto model?

    Z3 Users: Lollipop 5.02 comming in middle of march:

  • soso

    why the hell they have to release the original e4 in the first time when the difference is just nfc and 4g -_-

  • jumbo3220

    well , that explains, the top bezel bigger model we saw on previous videos , its Xperia E4g , not an early prototype. now, which one is more cuter ? top bezel small E4 or top bezel big E4g?

  • Vuyo Ncube

    That’s… actually pretty damned impressive! The pre-release version’s IPS screen and battery life were good, the bezels are thin and it’s easy to hold, it’s up to date in connectivity for its price, it’s not ugly nor generic looking like some forgettable Galaxy Ace Neo Active Mini Duos, the “52 scenarios” things implies that Superior Auto might be a lot better for many Xperias, the processor’s good enough in its class AND the price is actually reasonable. Holy cow, they got everything absolutely right in this phone. Why am I suddenly angry that they chose Mediatek and didn’t screw up in any major aspect?

    Oh shit, the Z4 is gonna a monster if they continue to keep their heads on straight! I’m not ready.

  • uran

    hopefully not

  • goahead

    Would be great because I need a new phone.. I want to skip the Z3 now that the Z4 is around the corner.

    Sorry, why is there a picture of you here? What the actual fuck

  • Lucian

    I have no problem waiting if this is true. I rather get latest version later, than older version immediately and find out it’s full of bugs.

  • xperiaDROID

    This is a good idea and a bad idea. It’s a good idea because we don’t have to wait longer for the Z4 to release and the Z4 will get more hype and attention when they unveil it at MWC; but it’s also a bad idea, because they might lose more customers (most likely Z3 owners) because they will feel that their phone has got outdated quickly and it might also scare away the consumers who are planning to get a Sony phone because of how quick Sony phones will get outdated.

    For me though, I do hope that the Z4 will be unveiled at MWC but that’s just a small chance because Sony will not do livestream and event in MWC this year. So, most likely they’re just gonna unveil the E4, SmartEyeglass and Android Lollipop.

  • Robertx

    Cuando es que llega la actualizacion a Lollipop para el Xperia Z2 y Z3…. La espera es muy larga :-(

  • ?ukasz Majcher

    why not Android 2.3.6 insted of 4.4 kitakt? ;D

  • Brin

    Hopefully it’s a Qualcomm, not a MTK.

  • Snorky112


  • theskig

    Maybe there’s something connected to bezels

  • Hans Marder

    same opinion here. Samsung S5 runs really bad 5.0, so wait until its good is ok

  • Timmy

    Xperia E4g comes with 4.7 inch qHD compared to Xperia E4 5 inch qHD

  • spatch72

    …and 4G phones run great on 3G networks as well. Just release the one phone covering all networks, and enough with the multiple variants. That’s all I’m saying.

  • Wilhelm-Bernhard Trometer

    The update for xperia z3 will toll out in the end of february i contactet sony support team in sweden via e-mail some days ago and today they send me a e-mail anyway we will se if that turns out rigth

  • Kaarthikeyan Swaminathan

    Different markets, different price.

  • thoughts

    2 lowends…. Less phones lol sony is continuing the same processes i dont see a difference

  • Ritwij

    Hey it takes a lot of courage to post a selfie.

  • BruceLeeRoyJenkins

    I’ve never seen this before, is it similar to Superior Auto on their other devices? Similar to Intelligent Auto on their cameras? What resolution does it take pictures in, an upscale version like how Superior Auto does it?

  • Snorky112

    I guess his name is bezel

  • Ram fickle

    You read the “!” as an “L”. He wrote auto mode.

  • lunkz

    The bad thing is on the Mediatek CPU, you can’t unlock the bootloader…

    the problem only higher price than moto G.

  • Vuyo Ncube

    Yeah but I doubt many people will tinker with budget phones. Mediatek should fix that anyway.


    You should really check your Gmail emails lol

  • deli

    well, I only used it once with M’s cam sw but yes they are similar and no oversampling if that’s what you’re asking. Res should be native (cropped to 16:9 in this case). Nothing to be excited about if you ask me.

  • Tim Rox Westerholm

    That’s only for mid and low range series i think. Highend users got Superior Auto

  • Kizoky

    And here, I’m sitting with my Xperia E1 here, crying.
