Just weeks after the announcement of the standard Xperia E4, Sony has revealed that an upgraded version, called the E4g, is on the way according to TechRadar.
The Xperia E4g will, unsurprisingly, feature 4G network connectivity to boost mobile internet speeds, along with a 1.5GHz quad core processor and a five inch display with a 960×540 resolution.
This means that the E4g will not only be a better equipped device for connectivity on the move than its predecessor, but will also have a faster CPU to make apps and the interface feel quicker and more responsive.
The E4g should be sold for around the £100 mark when it arrives in the UK this April. And one of the other benefits of the phone is that it will feature a 2300mAh battery, that Sony believes can last for up to 48 hours without needing to be recharged.
This would make it a particularly portable and practical pay as you go phone, or indeed an affordable pay monthly option. Running Android and with access to exclusive Sony features, like PlayStation and Walkman functionality, the Xperia E4g could be a competitive budget smartphone, to take on rivals from Samsung and Nokia.
