Rumor has it Sony is going to be relatively quiet during Mobile World Congress, but that hasn’t stopped the smartphone maker from making a few announcements leading into the show. Sony on Tuesday announced the Xperia E4g, a version of the Xperia E4 that it announced earlier this month.
The Xperia E4g is basically the same phone as the Xperia E4, but it also packs in 4G LTE connectivity. It’s sort of like Sony’s take on what Motorola has done with the Moto G, releasing a second model that costs a bit more but provides support for faster data networks. Sony promises that, despite the LTE support, you should expect to find up to two days of battery life. Sony also added a minimalist user interface, called Simple Home, with larger icons for folks who don’t like squinting. Other specs weren’t provided by Sony, but you should expect a similar 5-inch display, 1GB of RAM, 8GB of internal storage and other hardware that’s found on the Xperia E4.
The Xperia E4g will ship in April in black or white, and is priced at €129, or roughly $145.
