Sony soon plans to launch Xperia E, a budget Android phone with special focus on music. The phone is a successor to Xperia E launched last year.

Sony claims that the phone’s loudspeaker can play music at up to 100 dB, which should drown out practically every other sound around you.

The phone is powered by Sony’s xLOUD sound enhancement engine and features ClearAudio+ and Clear Bass.
