The truth is that the name of the model is a bit surprising, since it was expected that this was the Xperia E2, but it seems that the Japanese company has not chosen this path and has decided to keep the previous nomenclature – specifying that it is the second. version of this terminal-. The fact is that it maintains some of its characteristics, such as that its screen is 4 inches, but what if it is improved in this section is the resolution as it becomes 960 x 540 (when before it was 800 x 400).
Other improvements in the Sony Xperia E1 II
Well there are a good number of them, that is the truth. An example is the two essential components when it comes to allowing better performance: processor and RAM. In the first case, it goes from a 1.2 GH dual-core SoC to a four-core one that operates at a 1.3 GHz frequency (at least, this is what it looks like in the extended specifications). With regard to memory, this is situated in 1 GB, which duplicates the one included in the previous model.
And if we talk about multiplying by two, this also happens with the storage space, since the Sony Xperia E1 II has 8 GB, with the possibility of expanding this by using microSD cards of up to 32 GB. By the way, the main camera has also been updated, since the integrated one is 5 megapixels (instead of the 3 Mpx of the previous model).
Some sections that do not vary
An example of this is that the dimensions remain unchanged, staying in 118 x 62.4 x 12 mm. That is, if we take into account that its screen is four inches, we are talking about a use below 70% of the front of the device (this announces considerable frames).
To date, there was not much news regarding the arrival of the Sony Xperia E1 II, so the announcement on the Phone House page has been a surprise (at the moment it is not available for sale, but you could request the receive a notice when this happens). Perhaps at the imminent Mobile World Congress this model that arrives with an operating system will be a reality Android KitKat customized with the Timescape user interface and in black and white colors.
