Sony unveils highest IP rating smartphone- Xperia M4 Aqua
Sony today refocused its mid-range device strategy with the introduction of Xperia M4 Aqua – a smartphone bringing Sony’s leadership in camera, design, battery and performance to an accessible price point. The Xperia M4 Aqua Android phone brings you the same innovation in waterproof design as Sony premium smartphones, protecting against water as well as fine dust particles. You can even take photos and videos 1.5 metres under fresh water for up to 30 minutes. The Xperia M4 Aqua has been given the highest IP rating in a smartphone – IP65/68.
Sony Xperia M4 Aqua will come with the new look Xperia Lounge Silver, bringing apps, software updates, entertainment, bespoke offers and tips delivered throughout the product lifecycle. Xperia M4 is Sony’s first octa-core 64-bit smartphone, featuring the Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 processor with integrated 4G LTE connectivity and up to two-day battery life.
Xperia M4 Aqua’s impressive 13MP rear camera is powered by Sony’s Exmor RS mobile sensor with a large F2.0 aperture, and ISO 3200 sensitivity. Just as with the rear, the 5MP selfie camera has a super wide-angle lens with an 88° field of view, so no-one’s left out of shot – and Portrait Retouch allows you to add fun finishing refinements. Crafted from the ground up, Xperia M4 Aqua has understated premium looks – a tempered glass display, with the svelte 136g waterproof (IP65/8 rated) body reengineered for cap-less microUSB charging, offering flexible usage wherever you are.
Xperia M4 Aqua will be available in classic White and Black, but also fresh Coral and Silver3. Sony’s adopted the same subtle principles in its take on Android 5.0 Lollipop’s material design, in keeping with that distinctive minimalist approach to user interface, interactions and native apps. Xperia M4 Aqua will launch in 80 countries worldwide, across more than 100 carrier partners for around 299 EUR, from Spring 2015.
