A few weeks back, it was anyone’s guess if Sony was actually going to bring new phones to MWC 2015. Rumors of the Xperia Z4 kept drifting further and further into the future, and our MWC attention instead started turning towards Sony’s tablet lineup. And with Sony launching phones like the Xperia E4 and E4g in the weeks before the conference, even if it did have any non-flagship models in the pipeline, would it have any left by the time the show rolled around? As it turns out, that answer is very much in the affirmative, and Sony just went official with its new Xperia M4 Aqua mid-ranger.

Sure, it’s not going to compete with the Galaxy S6s and One M9s of the world, but that’s not what Sony’s up to with the M4 Aqua. It’s got a five-inch 720p display that won’t win any pixel density awards, but the lack of boundary-pushing specs allows the phone to hit two days of use on a single charge.

With a name like Aqua, waterproofing is expected, and Sony really outdoes itself here, protecting the M4 Aqua’s USB port without the need of a manual rubber plug to keep away water. The handset offers a 13MP main camera, runs Android Lollipop, and will be available in four colors. Take a look for yourself below:
