Sony is one of the manufacturers that got many mentions in this year’s Mobile World Congress for their flagship smartphones which includes the Sony Xperia XZs. After its big reveal, the flagship comes with a deluxe version, the Sony Xperia XZ Premium, which will be released this year. Sony is saving the premium version for a later release, while the Xperia XZs is already available for pre-order in Asian markets like India. Here are the features of this lite phone flagship from Sony.
Recently, Sony revealed that their focus is on the Xperia X lineup. However, they still have to dedicate time into manufacturing other devices such as the rumored Xperia C6. Renders of the rumored device have been floating all over the internet, displaying Sony’s signature outer body design that can be seen in their recent smartphone models. One leak that surfaced about the Xperia C6 shows a design that is similar to the renders that appeared in the previous months.
At long last, the much-awaited Android Nougat 7.0 update will makes its way for the venerable yet relevant Sony Xperia Z5. Despite being released nearly two years ago, the Sony Xperia Z5 is still going strong since its specs are not really that dated. It may prove to be a long wait but Sony has been one of the first manufacturers that has came forward to affirm its commitment in updating its large range of smartphones during the sudden release of Android 7.0 Nougat by Google. Recently, it has just released the Android Nougat update for Sony Xperia X, XZ, X Performance and X Compact. Next, it will be Sony Xperia Z5's turn.

The smartphone that’s meant to attract the young and the first time smartphone users. It’s basically a grown-up version of the Sony Xperia E because it features more brain power, bigger screen size, and could stay afloat even in the rough waters. The best thing about it is that its price is as humble as it could get. Contrary to its predecessor (the Xperia E), the Xperia E1 is the cool kid on the block, because of its aesthetics. It flaunts a rugged yet sporty look, which is not just for aesthetic purposes. On top of that is the Walkman function which is a nod to Sony’s classic music player label.
The Sony Xperia E1 is built with a 4” TFT LCD display. It sports a resolution of 480 x 800 pixels and a pixel density of 233 pixels per inch. The color reproduction of its display is decent all thanks to Sony’s graphic engine. Though the Bravia engine isn’t present in this device, it still manages to dish out the best for a 4-incher. On the other hand, it viewing angles are versatile and could easily shift colors appropriately in certain angles in order to resonate the display as vivid as possible.
A youth and an Android newbie oriented device that provides all the essentials that they could possibly need. Its camera is basically a testament to that. The Xperia E1’s camera sports a 3.15MP sensor that could capture decent quality photos and could capture SVGA videos at 30fps.
The Sony Xperia E1 comes equipped with a sufficient Dual-Core 1.2 GHz Cortex A7 processor, which conforms to the minimum standard of desktop processors. On top of that, it’s paired with an Adreno 302 GPU to support graphic driven applications and games. The processor and GPU are paired with a 1GB RAM for a smooth multitasking experience.
The storage space of the Xperia E1 is 4GB and is expandable up to 32GB via dedicated microSD slot. You can carry around enough music, movies, and application to keep you company all day long.
