Earlier this week Sony launched it’s X series and today they have launched a new smartphone known as the Xperia E5. Priced at EUR 199 (Rs 15,000 approximately). Initially, the smartphone will be made available in selected European markets, as well as Latin American, African and Middle Eastern regions. As of now there’s no word on when the smartphone will be released in India. The smartphone comes in black and white color variants.
The Xperia E5 looks to be a inferior variant of the Xperia XA smartphone, which has just launched in India for Rs 20,990. The Xperia X has a 5-inch 720 display. It runs on Android Marshmallow OS and is powered by a better MediaTek Helio P10 processor along with 2GB of RAM.

If Sony plans to launch Xperia E5 at the expected price i.e. Rs. 15,000 in India, it will compete with Moto G4 Plus, Zuk Z1, Redmi Note and many others, which are way more powerful devices in terms of specification. Sony really needs to think on cutting down the cost of this device otherwise this handset will also come out to be a true failure as their earlier device in the past few months.
