Well, 2012 has surely been the year of innovation in the smartphone and tablet market, however, now it seems 2013 is going to be a bigger one, when it comes to Android smartphone evolution. This can be said as besides Nokia, Apple and Samsung, other manufacturers are also preparing their big bets to sizzle up the competition arena. One of the major contender seems to be Sony.
The Japanese manufacturer has come in the spotlight for its upcoming Xperia E smartphone, whose dual-SIM Chinese variant had earlier leaked out, and now it has appeared in some benchmarks over at AnTuTu, giving us a look at its specs.
As per the reports, specifications revealed by the benchmarks have been informed to be 1 GHz processor with an Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean platform on the model number – C1505.
Compared to other high-end phones in the market, the 1 GHz processor does not give this handset much credit, indicating it to be an offering in the entry or mid-range level. However, the Jelly Bean update alleged to be used in this phone seems to perk up the situation, as this Android update has been receiving ravishing feedback from the users on its smoothness.
The device has obtained low CPU score in the benchmark indicating that Sony might have used a single-core Qualcomm unit as opposed to a higher performing dual core NovaThor processor developed by Sony.
Besides, that Sony Experia E model C2105 is expected to hit the markets in the first quarter of 2013.
