Sony introduced the Xperia E3 at IFA, Berlin 2014 along with the flagship Xperia Z3. The budget smartphone has a 4.5-inch (854 x 480 pixels) capacitive touch screen display and weighs 8.5 mm thick and weighs 144 g.
The Xperia E3 powers a 1.2GHz Snapdragon 400 (MSM8226) processor with Adreno 305 GPU and runs on Android KitKat 4.4. It has a 1 GB RAM, 4GB internal memory and expandable storage (up to 32GB). In design it sports the trademark Xperia look with flat design, curved nylon corners to help protect from drops and slightly rounded edges. It is a solid build device and feels quiet handy.
At the back we have a 5-megapixel rear camera with LED flash at the right side, the Sony logo in the middle and Xperia logo at the bottom. At the end we can see the built in loud speaker below the Xperia logo.
The phone does not have anything at the bottom and comes in with built in FM radio.
At the top we can see the 3.5mm audio jack for your earphones. On the left we have the micro USB charging port and on the right there is a trademark aluminum power/lock/unlock button. Also, present on the right are volume rockers that are made of plastic.
On the front we have a VGA camera, earpiece, proximity sensors and LED notification light. It has a 2330mAh battery and comes with 4G support. The Xperia E3 has no physical buttons and just the on screen ones. It comes with a removable back cover.
The Xperia E3 also comes in dual sim variant and will be available in white, black, lime and copper colors.
