Sony Xperia M4 Aqua: Snapdragon 615, 2-Day Battery Life

As we just told you, Sony showed off its brand new Xperia Z4 Tablet at MWC 2015, launched as a capable iPad Air 2 competitor.

Well, the Japanese company also introduced a smartphone with mid-range capabilities that is equipped with pretty nifty features for a lower-end model such as itself. The Sony Xperia M4 Aqua is the successor of the M2 Aqua, although you have to admit it’s pretty odd that Sony skipped a beat like that.

Sony paves the way for the new class of mid-rangers
The phone is waterproof (can survive being immersed in 5ft / 1.5 m of liquid for up to 30 minutes) and takes advantage of Sony’s OmniBalance language design. Like the Lenovo Vibe Shot, which we just detailed for you, the Sony Xperia M4 Aqua draws life from a Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 octa-core chip. However, it takes advantage of a 5-inch display with 720p resolution instead (the Lenovo device offers 1080p). Details about RAM storage and internal memory are not provided, but we assume we’re dealing with the 2GB/16GB combo here. The handset runs Android 5.0 Lollipop out of the box, so you’ll be off the hook when it comes to updates, for the time being at least.

Sony brings its own twist to Google’s latest and greatest OS and has revamped the Xperia Lounge Silver to group up apps, software updates, entertainment, bespoke offers and tips. The M4 Aqua bundles a respectable main camera of the 13MP variety with Superior Auto Mode (meaning that you won’t have to fiddle with manual controls). It has a fast, f/2.0 lens working in concert with ISO that maxes out at 3200. Up in front, we find a 5MP frontal camera for snapping self-portraits. We should also mention that the M4 Aqua is pretty sleek, coming in at 4.8oz / 136g, and bundles LTE capabilities.

You won't need to charge the Sony Xperia M4 Aqua everyday
Most importantly, this mid-range handset promises an impressive battery life, which is supposed to last up to 2 days. It’s the same we've been hearing about the low-priced Xperia E4. The Xperia M4 Aqua will be available in White, Black, Coral and Silver and will launch in spring 2015. The phone will be offered in up to 80 countries for €299 / $334.
