The Mobile World Congress (a.k.a MWC) 2018, one of the biggest events in the mobile industry has just recently ended last Friday in Barcelona. As we look back at the festivities, MWC this year felt a little underwhelming, probably because Samsung stole the show before the event even officially began with the launch of the Galaxy S9. Nevertheless, the show still had its fair share of highlights that is worth talking about. Hence, below are some of the most notable handsets that were seen last week.
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.
The Sony Xpria E4 runs with a MediaTek MT658 chipset which is equipped with a Quad-core A7 cortex that’s clocked at 1.3GHz. It GPU is Mali-400MP2, a graphic processor that’s sufficient enough to run light to moderate graphic demanding applications and games. It also comes with 1GB RAM, giving it the capability to do moderate to heavy multitasking.
The Sony Xperia E4 flaunts a standard IPS LCD screen with a 540 x 960-pixel resolution with a pixel density of 220 pixels-per-inch. The display quality is nothing special because it’s appropriate for its category and price range.
This phone is packed with a 2400 mAh non-removable battery. The phone has a power saver feature which would allow users to maximize its battery. The battery can sustain the phone for up 3 days on standby mode, while 9 hours of video playback, 11 hours of talk time, and 16 hours of web browsing.
One of the perks of this phone is the LTE connectivity. Only a few entry level devices are equipped with LTE technology and this phone is one of those. The Xperia E4 also come in two variants – the dual sim and the single sim.
This phone comes with Android 4.4.4 KitKat and flavored with Sony Xperia’s signature launcher. One of the neat features that comes with this phone is its face detection capability which is integrated into their lock screen, providing users more ways to unlock and secure their phone.
This phone uses a 5MP camera sensor with an LED flash on the side. The camera resolution is quite outdated but it doesn’t mean it can’t produce decent quality photos. Besides, the phone is an entry level device and the price tag that comes with it pretty much tells not to expect a ground breakingcamera. Despite that, its camera is one of the most decent features of the phone as it produces good quality photos and it comes with auto focus and face detection features.
