The year 2013 has proved to a lucky for Sony, as far as the success of its high-end devices are concerned.
While Sony is a brand to reckon in the high-end segment, however, the same cannot be said about the company's low-end offering.
Though, Sony did try to launch a low-end handset: the Xperia E in the beginning of the year.
Sony Xperia E isn't the best low-end Android phone available in the market. Surely, Sony would like to announce the successor of Xperia E sometime in 2014.
Believe it or not, Sony has already started working on the Xperia E2. The said phone could be out in the market in 2014.
Unlike the original Xperia E, the second-generation Xperia E will likely to have 4G LTE connectivity, informs EMSOne. There are no details available around the device, so it would be really tough to commend on the specs and features.
Since the original Sony Xperia E comes with a 3.5-inch display, 1.0GHz single processor and a 3.2MP camera, its successor would probably carry better features.
Moreover, Sony has apparently asked Foxconn Taiwan to manufacture 7 million units of entry level LTE phones. The phone is none other than the long due Xperia E2.
Affordable 4G LTE phones are touted to be the next-big thing in countries like India and China. Established brands including Samsung, HTC and ZTE are planning to launch 4G LTE enabled handsets in India next year.
