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.
