Sony, at its pre-IFA 2014 event in Berlin, has finally introduced the successor of its Xperia E1, the Xperia E3. While the company has not provided pricing details, it says the smartphone will launch globally in Autumn 2014.

The Sony Xperia E3 features a 4.5-inch IPS display with a 480×854 pixel resolution. The handset also houses a 5-megapixel rear camera along with a bunch of Sony’s own photo and video editing apps, including the features like HDR and Timeshift burst. It also has a front-facing VGA camera.

A quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor clocked at 1.2GHz powers the handset, coupled with 1GB of RAM and Adreno 305 GPU. It comes with 4GB of built-in storage, expandable via microSD card (32GB). The company also claims the Xperia E3’s 2330mAh battery to be long lasting with the help of a Battery Stamina mode.
