Japanese electronics company Sony has a knack for producing waterproof devices. Following that trend, last Tuesday, Sony launched Xperia M2 Aqua, a water- and dust-resistant version of its mid-range smartphone, Xperia M2.
Sony Xperia M2 Aqua weighs 149 g. It measures 140 mm x 72 mm x 8.6 mm. Xperia M2 Aqua’s hardware is pretty much the same as its predecessor Xperia M2. The Xperia M2 Aqua runs on Android 4.4 KitKat and it comes with a 4.8-inch 540 x 960 qHD display, a 1.2GHz quad-core Snapdragon 400 processor, 1GB of RAM.
There’s an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera, a 1.1-megapixel front-facing shooter, a microSD card that can be extended up to 32GB and a 2,330mAh battery. The Xperia M2 Aqua can remain intact while kept in 1.5-meter deep water for up to half an hour.
The phone comes in two colors – Black and White. It supports 4G LTE, GPS/A-GPS, GLONASS, Bluetooth 4.0, NFC, Wi-Fi, DLNA, and ANT+ for sports accessories. It also comes preloaded with Lifelog app for SmartBand SWR10. Here’s a video of the phone.
Xperia M2 Aqua is supposed to be released this fall in Asia, Latin America and Europe. There’s no word on pricing. Besides, it’s not clear if or when the phone will be available in the United States.
