Sony launches €299 Xperia M4 Aqua with Android Lollipop and octa-core processor

Sony has today launched a new mid-range smartphone dubbed the Xperia M4 Aqua, and yes, it’s fully waterproof, as you might expect with a name like that.
Aside from its water-repellent capabilities, the device comes with a 13-megapixel rear-facing camera (with F2.0 aperture lens), octa-core processor, 5-megapixel selfie snapper and a claimed two-day battery life.

Like some of the other Xperia models, it has cap-free waterproofing, meaning you don’t need to remember to close off your microUSB connector and the device should still be fine if it takes an accidental short dip.
Under the bonnet, the device will arrive running Android Lollipop out of the box, and supports 4G LTE connectivity, as well as the expected slower data standards. This isn’t always a given on a mid-range device.

Sony said the M4 Aqua will go on sale in white, black, coral and silver in Spring in more than 80 countries. It’ll be available SIM-free or via carriers in these markets, the company added.

Sony’s 4G version of the Xperia E4 will arrive from April priced at $145

Sony has revealed the Xperia E4g, the latest addition to its smartphone line. It unveiled the Xperia E4 earlier this month, but it was notably missing 4G support.
The new model is largely the same as the Xperia E4. As well as adding 4G connectivity, it offers a bump in speed with a 1.5Ghz quad-core processor versus the E4’s 1.3Ghz chip.
As with the E4, the Xperia E4g has a 5-inch qHD display, 1GB RAM, a “two-day” 2,300mAh battery and a 5-megapixel snapper on the rear. You also get just 8GB of storage as standard.
It’s due to launch in April for around $145 (€129).
