Sony has announced the Xperia E1, a 4in mid-range Android smartphone aimed at music lovers on a budget.
Its specs are nothing to write home about, but the Xperia E1 does give you audio-friendly features including a Walkman app and a beefy 100dB speaker around the back.
Sony's latest homage to its legendary Walkman brand is in many ways a throwback to the chunkily compact W-branded Sony Ericsson feature phones of the last decade, though obviously with a modern twist.
The baseline specs include a 4in 800 x 480-pixel display, a 1.2GHz dual-core Qualcomm processor, 512MB of RAM and a 4GB helping of storage, which in 2014 terms is a pretty meagre offering.
On the audio front, that powerful speaker is accompanied by a dedicated Walkman hardware button on the side, shake-to-shuffle and a host of proprietary Sony audio software features.
You also get a 30-day pass to the Sony Entertainment Network's music streaming service, and it's all controlled through the aforementioned Walkman app.
The Xperia E1 has a 1700mAh battery, which sounds sufficient considering the less-than-premium specs, while the images clearly show a camera, but Sony isn't divulging the details just yet.
In fact, we'll probably only get the full hardware specification at Mobile World Congress 2014 next month, though we are told the Xperia E1 will come in at around €175 when it does hit the streets over the next few months.
