Sony announces the Xperia T2 Ultra phablet and Xperia E1 Walkman phone


With the launch of Samsung Galaxy Mega, Sony thought that it must release a mid-range phablet soon so as to compete with Samsung, as phablets are getting popular in the Asian and African markets. Sony has taken keeping this in view, a smart decision and as a result, the Sony Xperia T2 Ultra was born.

Sony Xperia T2 Ultra, with its 6.0 inch screen could be rightly called as a phablet. The display resolution is 1280 x 720 pixels and various technologies such as TRILUMINOUS, Mobile Bravia Engine 2 would accompany it. The device is fitted with a 13 megapixel Exmor RS rear-facing camera and a 1.1 megapixel Exmor R front-facing camera. Talking about the processor, the device is powered by a quad core Snapdragon processor, clocked at a frequency of 1.4 GHz and 1 GB RAM. The device comes with a built-in storage capacity of 8 GB, which could be further expanded up to 32 GB via microSD card.


The battery capacity of the device is 3000 mAh and it includes Sony’s Battery STAMINA mode as well. Sony Xperia T2 Ultra would come in black, purple and white colour options and it would have two variants, single SIM T2 Ultra for the single SIM users and the dual-SIM T2 Ultra dual for the dual SIM users. Despite all the good features, we are hoping that the price will be affordable since it is meant for emerging markets like China, the Middle East, Africa and the Asia Pacific. Sony specifically mentions that the T2 Ultra will launch at a mid-range price point.

Xperia E1, on the other hand has its focus on the audio playback aspect. This would also be a budget smartphone. For the music lovers, this smartphone would be astonishing as the loudspeaker on the rear side of this phone claims to reach out to 100 dB, which would fade every other noise surrounding you. Various other features of this phone would be shake to shuffle, Walkman button etc.


Xperia E1 would include a 4.0 inch display screen with a resolution of 800 x 480 pixels and a dual core processor clocked at 1.2 GHz, 512 MB RAM and 4 GB internal storage capacity which could be expanded further via a microSD slot.

This phone would also have two variants; one for the single-SIM users and the other one for the double-SIM users and the same colour choices of purple, black and white just like the Xperia T2 Ultra.
