Sony does not usually go with Mediatek processors, however an entry on the benchmarking website, GFXbench reveals a new smartphone from the Japanese company running on a Mediatek chip.
The upcoming model with the number E2003/ E2033 features modest specifications, which probably means the company will target the lower mid-range crowd with this phone.
The entry reveals that the Sony E2003 smartphone will run on a Mediatek MT6752 processor based on Cortex A53 architecture with four cores clocked at 1.5Ghz. The chip also comes with the Mali-T760 GPU. The device is quite small and compact. There will be a 4.6-inch display up front with a low qHD (960 x 540 pixels) resolution. Inside, there will be 1GB of RAM onboard with 8GB internal storage. The listing shows that the camera will be of 5MP while the front shooter will be of 2MP. The rear camera will be able to capture videos at 1080p Full HD resolution.
The device is said to run on Android 4.4.4 KitKat, probably with the company’s own skin on top. Connectivity features include Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and GPS. No information is available whether the phone supports 4G LTE networks.
We don’t know the name of the device yet, but given the specs, it could be a new smartphone in the company’s budget Xperia E series.
