Sony Xperia M is now official with 4-inch screen, dual-core processor, Exmor RS camera
Ladies and gents, meet the new Sony Xperia M smartphone, running Android 4.1 Jelly Bean! What the "M" in its title stands for is not clear, although "mid-range" would be a fitting guess as that's the category this smartphone belongs to. It packs a 4-inch TFT display with a resolution of 480 by 854 pixels, a 1GHz, dual-core Snapdragon processor, and a 5MP Exmor RS camera that can capture 720p video at 30 frames per second.

It is worth noting that the Sony Xperia M follows the company's OmniBalance design principles, so it is quite a looker. The smartphone is also compact, with a weight of 124 grams and thickness of 9.3 millimeters. Below its screen we see the typical for Sony smartphones RGB light strip, displaying colorful alerts for missed calls or pending notifications. 

Further specs include a front-facing camera, 4GB of storage expandable with a microSD card, 1GB of RAM, and a battery that can deliver 10 hours of continuous talk time. The longevity of the Sony Xperia M can be expanded with the built-in Stamina mode, which turns off some or all of the phone's radios whenever they are not in use. 

The Sony Xperia M will be available in black, white, and purple, but a yellow, dual-SIM variant of the device is in the works as well. Expect seeing the smartphone launch globally during the third quarter of 2013. Pricing has yet to be announced, but it will likely vary between regions.

This one should be the successor of Xperia J, Heck, Xperia J isnt even 1 year old yet but it lags even in normal homescreen navigation, i hope this one is a lot better. Good to see more colors being offered.

I guess this will be quite good. After all, the Xperia J is powered by Snapdragon S1. Didn't even know that that exists..... And this is by Snapdragon s4. Quite a huge different.

I bought a Sony Xperia M a month back. There is some camera problem with the model. always i take a picture from the camera it comes with bluesh colour. due this the actual colour of the picture got changed. i register a complaint to customer care and brought the phone to service centre, they replaced the camera but the problem is not resolved. i think all the phone with same model are having same problem. I bought Sony phone as i heard that sony is the market leader in camera quality but i think i wasted my money. Is there any option to replace the phone and i can go for some other model of sony phone. My Complaint Number/Ticket Id is 13123100782 (31st Dec 2013) and my Job number is W113123100782 (1st Jan 2014). My Contact details :- Vikas Sharma, Mobile number : 9311566760.

Not really. Sony already released Xperia E which is priced same as Lumia 520. But the Lumia 520 has much better specs (WVGA vs HVGA on Xperia), (8GB vs 4 GB), (5 MP vs 3.2MP on Xperia), (S4 dual core vs old single core) etc.. I think this is lumia 620 competitor.

That's bases on specs alone though...I guess some people would prefer android...others would prefer wp

But Lumia 520 is huge success while Xperia E is a flop at least in India. The reason is specs are very bad for what you are paying. HVGA screen and android lags like hell on those old processors. But the processor on this new Xperia M should be good.

true that! xperia j, xperia e and the recently released xperia L is a complete fail where i live. and this xperia m will follow soon. good exterior, sh!t interior. even the s4 mini has better resolution and ram and bang for the buck than this. and most importantly sony is overpriced compared to other low end phones.

Xperia SP is wayyy..... better option than S4 mini
