Sony Xperia M4 Aqua Unveiled: 64-bit Octo-Core CPU, 4G LTE and Android 5.0 Lollipop
Sony Mobile has just 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.
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.
Supporting this optimal balance of performance and power is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 processor featuring octa-core 64-bit CPUs, advanced multimedia processing and an integrated 4G LTE modem.
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.
Xperia M4 Aqua will be available in classic White and Black, but also fresh Coral and Silver. 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.
