Just a couple of days after the ‘Xperia E5’ moniker leaked, Sony has officially confirmed the existence of the device in a Facebook post. Not only this, the company also released the first official render of the handset, showing off both the front as well as back of the device.
Update: The post has since been taken down.
In case you missed, the Sony Xperia E5 leak from a couple of days ago effectively revealed that it’s the Sony F3311 that was spotted on GFXBench last month. The benchmark listing had revealed MediaTek’s MT6735 chipset, 4.6-inch 720p display, 1.5GB of RAM, and 16GB of storage, suggesting an entry-level device.
There’s currently no information on the pricing and availability front, although given that the company has officially started teasing the device, the wait shouldn’t be too long.
