Sony has tonight unveiled the Xperia E5 handset that they leaked themselves on their Facebook page last week. As shown off then, the phone is a fairly low-end device, but it looks like a fun little handsets with decent specs and a front facing flash on the selfie cam.

The phone isn’t anything out of the ordinary when it comes to design with the familiar Sony style. The camera, as usual with Sony handsets is as usual the focus for the E5 with a 13MP shooter on the rear featuring 3x Clear Image Zoom and what they say is point and shoot perfection. A new sharing menu makes sending those shots out into the world is also a feature on the E5.
