Early this month, Sony had launched a 3G-based budget smartphone Xperia E4 and now the Japanese company has announced higher-end 4G-LTE model.
"Xperia E4 set out to bring many of the premium features people expect of Sony to lower-tier devices; Xperia E4g brings that same quality and ease of use – but with super-fast 4G LTE connectivity," said Tony McNulty, Vice President, Value Category Business Management at Sony Mobile Communications.
"With simple set-up and unrivalled 2 day battery life, we believe both models represent value for those who want premium Sony technology and experiences often only associated with high-end devices," he added.
The new Xperia E4g houses pretty same specifications seen in Xperia E4, sans a couple of features. The former houses a faster CPU 1.5GHz MediaTek quad-core processor and 4G network connectivity feature, whereas the latter comes packed with 1.3GHz chipset and 3G network support.
Other stipulated features include 5.0-inch qHD display, Android 5.0 Lollipop OS, 1GB RAM, 8GB inbuilt memory and a 2300mAh battery which can run the device for close to 653 hours under standby mode.
