Sony Xperia M4 Aqua just went official at the MWC 2015. The smartphone is a high-end mid-ranger without any compromises, according to Sony.
The Xperia M4 Aqua is IP68-certified device - this means it is dust-tight and can last for up to 30 minutes in 1.5m deep fresh water. It also offers cap-less microUSB port – a first for a water-proofed Sony - so you won’t need to fiddle with caps and charging will be easier.
Sony Xperia M4 Aqua is built around a 5.2" IPS display of 720p resolution. It runs on the new Snapdragon 615 chipset with a 64-bit octa-core Cortex-A53 processor, Adreno 405 graphics and 2GB of RAM. The processor offers four Cortex-A53 cores ticking at 1.5GHz and another four clocked at 1.0GHz.
The M4 Aqua also comes with a rear 13MP Sony camera sensor at the back coupled with a LED flash. The front of the smartphone features a 5MP selfie snapper. The rest of the specs include 8 or 16 GB expandable storage, 4G LTE connectivity and the latest Android 5.0 Lollipop OS.
Sony Xperia M4 Aqua is powered by a 2,400 mAh battery and Sony promises it will last two full days of normal usage.
Sony Xperia M4 Aqua design is very similar to Xperia Z3's - it has tempered glass to protect the front and a beautiful frame with strengthened corners. There is even a dedicated camera shutter.
The smartphone will be available globally this spring in white, black, coral and silver flavors. The suggested retail price is €299.
