Hot on the heels of its announcement of the Xperia Z1 compact and the US-bound Xperia Z1S at CES, Sony today has just announced two more Android smartphones – a new phablet called the Xperia T2 Ultra and a new budget smartphone, the Xperia E1.

The Xperia T2 Ultra is a 6.0-inch phablet that is designed specifically for the Asian and African markets. It has a 1.4GHz quad-core Snapdragon processor, 1GB of RAM and 8GB of internal storage that is expandable via a microSD card.

The T2’s display offers a resolution of 1280×720 pixels and feature the company’s Triluminos technology and Mobile Bravia engine 2.

At the back of the T2 is a 13MP Exmor RS camera while a 1.1MP Exomor R camera sits at the front of the device. The phone will be offered as a single-SIM or a dual-SIM device and will come in three colours: white, black and purple.

The Xperia E1 on the other hand is a budget smartphone with a specific focus on music playback. The smartphone is built around a 4.0-inch display with an 800×400 resolution and comes equipped with a 1.2GHz dual-core processor with 512MB of RAM and 4GB of on-board storage that is expandable.

The E1 also comes with a loudspeaker at the back, which according to Sony can produce sounds up to 100dB. It also has a dedicated Walkman button for quick access to its music player as well as a shake to shuffle function and hardware buttons for controlling audio playback.

The phone will also be offered as a single-SIM or dual-SIM handset in the same colour options as the T2 Ultra.

There’s no specific information on pricing and availability yet, but since both phones are targeting budget-conscious consumers, we’re expecting relatively affordable pricing.
