We weren’t expecting much from Sony on the smartphone front from MWC 2015 – given that the Xperia Z4 doesn’t look to be launching here, and that’s pretty much all that’s been on our immediate radar as of late – but the company has gone ahead and surprised us a bit with the unveiling of the Sony Xperia M4 Aqua through a press release from Barcelona. Let’s have a look at the device below.
The smartphone is what Sony itself calls a mid-ranger, though the company does go on to state that the phone “sets the new mid-range standard” with its innovative features. There’s a 13MP rear-facing camera with an Exmor RS sensor and an f/2.0 aperture with ISO 3200 sensitivity. The front-facing 5MP shooter has a wide-angle (88 degrees) lens to optimize the quality of your selfies. The device comes with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 64-bit processor with LTE capabilities, too.
Of course, the M4 Aqua features Sony’s signature OmniBalance design language, with a svelte waterproof body with an IP rating, as well as the newest version of Android, Lollipop.
The Sony Xperia M4 Aqua will come to retail this spring in more than 80 countries worldwide across over 100 carriers for a price of just around 299 euros.
