Sony Xperia E5 officially unveiled (… and then pulled!)

by XB on 24th May 2016

in Rumours, Xperia E5


Xperia E5_2Sony Mobile officially took the wraps off the Xperia E5 earlier today – the launch marks the company’s first budget release of 2016. Well it would be if it weren’t for the fact that, whilst the company went guns blazing about the Xperia E5 on social media, it shortly after pulled all details. As any company should know by now, once something hits the internet it cannot be wiped.

See all of the images that were accidentally released earlier than expected below. Plus you can see the blurb on how Sony introduced the model on social media. Note the talk about “available around the clock”, which probably highlights the strong battery life. Hopefully, Sony will launch official details shortly.

How Sony introduced the Xperia E5 on its social media channels

Twitter: “Meet Xperia E5, your new reliable assistant, available around the clock”

Facebook: “Eager, effortless, and easy on the eye – it’s everything a smartphone should be. Say hello to your savvy new sidekick, Xperia E5”

Instagram: “Fuss-free. Intelligent. Impressive. That’s what Xperia E5 is saying How about you?”

Thanks to all that sent this in!

  • ramuk

    Looking good.

  • Joe Black

    Curious as to why they ditched the shiny, premium looking power button.

    Looking decent, unlike the last E series who were absolute bezel monsters.

    Let’s just see the pricing.

  • SONY only
  • Tim Rox Westerholm

    Wa… W…. Wo… We… But didn’t Sony say that they wanted to focus on the premium section development just recently?! I honestly don’t understand what they’re doing right now… First it was only the X-Series… Then the rumors says that there will be even more X phone aimed for different markets and now another E device? If this is the “new” strategy they could have kept all the original series instead. This is just confusing. I love you Sony but stop mess things up for reasons not even Frankenstein can explain. <3

  • Vjekoslav Andric

    They are just playing mind tricks with all those internet bashers, and payed trolls from a certain competition company

  • Marinko Agic

    All rumors

  • KarFar

    looks miles better than the moto g4 play (its competitor).

  • Kunal Shukla

    no one has really ever understood what sony wants to do, so relax

  • XT

    Nice-looking device, hope it is priced competitively.

  • Doubleyoupee

    Looks nice but I have no idea what this E5 phone is supposed to be.

    Sony’s marketing sucks so much =/

  • XT

    The post have since now been deleted. Announced by mistake?

  • Stanly

    At first glance I thought it’s a mistake because it looks like Xperia XA. But then I realise it’s a different phone because the power button and the volume buttons are different from XA.

  • P9

    I think it maybe the last E series
    no Z6 then also no E6, M6, C6…

  • Ambitious Man

    It have MT6735 and 2GB ram.

  • They have pulled out the Twitter & Facebook Posts

  • Stanly

    Has it been confirmed? Because I really wish they would use SD 415 instead of MT6735.

  • Ana Heluši?

    Very good

    great device 2gb ram 16gb in that phone

  • Pawe? Koper

    They should update Xperia E4 and E4G to at least android 5.1 but yeah they are more focused on producing more phones and later they’ll give up support to them. Good job Sony, I’ll never buy any android smartphone ever again.

    Hey XperiaBlog, thanks for deleting my response to a comment where I uploaded a screenshot of the original twit. Here’s again, ICYMI.

  • Sergio

    That’s not an E5. It’s just an Arima-manufactured device, which matches the specs of the E5 (it could’ve been faked too, btw), but that’s it. Arima’s not manufacturing the Xperia E5, but Sony itself, AFAIAC.

  • haidcar

    Not even Sony themselves.

  • jms209

    It could just be a left-over device, something they were already working on.
    They might thought it’s better to release it, since it’s already done.

  • HAWX

    XD

  • Kwstakhs

    The up front bezel reminds me of Sony Ericsson Yari….such a beautiful phone

    Sony’s marketing department is the weak link of the company.

    Kills the C/M/Z series, declares the X series is the way to go, then releases an E Xperia phone.

    LOL.

  • iia3ezu

    Sony cares about Sony Mobile as much as a wicked stepmother cares about her stepchild. Other divisions are making all the money.

  • iia3ezu

    It’ll be at least $100 more expensive with a Snapdragon chip. Not a good idea if you want to achieve supremacy in the bargain bin market.

    Oh yeah I hadn’t noticed that. They should’ve kept it on the phones without Fingerprint sensor though.

  • Geese Howard

    Well blame their Mobile Division. Every ‘once in a month’ they spurt out shit and come up with ideas (especially marketing strategy) that makes no sense at all.

    I’ve always said of Sony:
    Amazing Engineers
    Mediocre Marketing
    Terrible (possibly insane) management.

  • Spencer Navarra-Chew

    Actually, the only divison that’s been able to consistently turn profits in the last decade or so is Sony Entertainment (PlayStation)

  • azzido

    didn’t they mention to abandon any other naming than X?
    Lol, SOny Mobile CEO really must be a women, changing its mind randomly over and over again :D

  • ZerothGlacius

    Does anyone have any information on whether Sony is still doing the ODM thing or not? It appears that the E5 may be an ODM device, and the news from December said that Sony will mostly use Arima and Compal, meaning that M5 might be the last Foxconn/FIH-made Sony phone (which is sad, because I have had quite a few Foxconn-made Sonys).

    Circular power button is good.. That SONY’s tradmark since Xperia z.. But since fingerprint reader that makes it change, i guess better make power button all the same like the one with fonger print.. Like they did on z5 in US.. So this will be a re-fresh power button trademark from SONY.. IMHO
