Sony Unveils A New Smartphone And Tablet: Xperia M4 Aqua And Xperia Z4 Tablet

At the Mobile World Congress 2015, Sony Mobile announced that it has launched a new mid-range smartphone and tablet – the Xperia M4 Aqua, and its latest tablet, the Xperia Z4 Tablet.

While the releases are a show of a focus towards their strengths – great cameras, great displays, and waterproofing that threaten to put competitors to shame.

We take a quick look at the two releases to see what we’re expecting at it’s launch in a few month’s time.

The Xperia M4 Aqua bears a striking resemblance to the Xperia Z3, but at a better price. According to Sony, it brings back its “signature Sony OmniBalance design”, and with a name like Aqua, you know it’s going to be a waterproof model.

It is also lighter at 136g, but with a solid plastic exterior that comes in four colours – White, Black, Coral, and Silver. It. It boasts a 2 day battery life, and – as you would expect from Sony – a powerful 13MP camera with F2.0 aperture and Sony’s own intelligent Superior Auto mode.
