Sony's curvier E4 hints at new Xperia family design

Can't wait for Sony's incoming smartphone with a QHD screen and eight-core Snapdragon 810 CPU? With a qHD screen and MTK quad-core chip, Sony's Xperia E4 is not the rumored Z4 you've been waiting for, but it is the first fourth-gen Xperia device we've seen. The new handset has middling specs with a 5-inch 960x540 screen, single or dual SIMs, Android 4.4.4, a 5-megapixel front camera and "stamina" battery mode that gives two days of usage. More intriguingly, the E4 has a new, rounded corner design instead of the blocky look of nearly every other Xperia handset, possibly marking new Sony mobile design language.

We don't know if the rumored 5.4-inch Xperia Z4 will have a similar look (perhaps not), but it'll almost surely pack high-end Qualcomm hardware judging by recent comments from Sony mucky-mucks. And the rumor mill now has it overdue, so we're hoping to see its 64-bit Lollipop goodness at Mobile World Congress 2015 starting March 1st. As for today's phone of record, the Xperia E4, we've yet to hear how much it'll cost and when it'll arrive.
