Waterproof phone with great camera, smaller than the 5.5" slabs, but not as tiny as the Xperia Z3 Compact – that's the elevator pitch of the Sony Xperia M5. Announced today, the M5 is labeled a "super mid-range" phone by its maker.
The first promo video for the phone focuses on the Xperia M5's dust and water resistance and shows how easy it is to clean it, without fearing damage. The M5 is an advanced follow-up to the Xperia M4 Aqua.
A significant portion of the video is dedicated to the phone's cameras, which are more appropriate for a flagship Z-series phone than a mid-ranger. The main camera uses a new 21.5MP sensor with Hybrid AF and 2160p video capture, while the selfie camera takes 13MP photos and 1080p videos, complete with autofocus.
