One of the many anticipated Sony smartphones is the Xperia M4 Aqua. Obviously, the name aqua means it can be submerged in the water or at least can survive some splashes. The phone which was first leaked in February and then officially announced as a midrange phone at the Mobile World Congress, looks a lot like the Xperia Z4 which means it looks like an Xperia Z3+ which still looks like the previous Xperia Z3.
Pre-order for the phone began early March in Germany. The Sony Xperia M4 Aqua Dual version was recently released in India so we can expect the phone will be available very soon. Now, we’ve got news that the phone is almost ready for Canada. The unit will be available by middle of June and will come in a polycarbonate shell just like the Z4.
The Sony Xperia M4 Aqua will be offered by several carriers like Fido, Bell, Virgin Mobile, Wind Mobile, and Videotron. Two color variants will be available: black and white. Sony has not shared how much the phone will be but it’s a mid-range phone so it should be affordable.
Phone is mid-range but the M4’s camera impresses with 13 megapixels and Exmor sensors. Even the front-facing camera is 5MP and has access to Sony’s special image stabilization software. Display screen 5-inches with 720p resolution. while battery is 2400 mAh. Other specs include a Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 processor, Adreno 405 GPU, 8GB/16GB built-in storage, 2GB RAM, and a microSD card slot. Phone already runs Android 5.0 Lollipop out of the box.
The Sony Xperia M4 Aqua is mid-range alright but it’s waterproof just like Sony’s other premium phones. Thanks to the company sealing the charging port and headphone jack, water won’t seep inside the phone if you drop it on water.
