Sony’s latest mid-range smartphone is aimed at the clumsy, fishermen or lifeguards. The Xperia M4 Aqua is IP-65 waterproof and IP-68 dustproof, so it’ll take more than a few splashes before it complains.
The 2,300mAh battery is also touted to last for 48 hours in STAMINA Mode 5.0, which if it’s as good as it says, will cut down on battery rage considerably.
The M4 Aqua runs on a Qualcomm 64-bit octa-core Snapdragon 615 MSM8939 processor and comes with 2GB of RAM, as well as the choice of 8GB or 16GB storage (expandable via microSD).
It has a 5-inch, 1820 x 720-pixel IPS display and the cameras are 13MP (rear) and 5MP (front-facer).
It’ll launch with Android 5.0 Lollipop from the box, and it supports NFC, Bluetooth 4.1 and GPS.
It weighs 136g and will launch this spring in more than 80 countries for around 299 euros (US$330).
Not too shabby.
