Sony Xperia M2 Aqua appears at the FCC, possibly a water-resistant Xperia M2
Earlier this year, Sony announced the Xperia M2 – a 4.8-inch mid-range Android smartphone with LTE connectivity. Now, it looks like a slightly upgraded variant of the M2 could be coming soon. How do we know? Well, as we were digging through the FCC's database for any newly-listed handsets, we came across a couple of Sony handsets with model names PM-0770 and PM-0771. After further digging on the web, we found an XML file on Sony's web site revealing both smartphones' name – Sony Xperia M2 Aqua.

So basically, it appears that the Sony PM-0770 and PM-0771 are two variants of this yet-unannounced, Android-powered Sony Xperia M2 Aqua. Judging by the marketing name, the handset in question is probably going to be water resistant – a trait that the original Xperia M2 lacks. Both models have Wi-Fi a/b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0 LE, ANT+, NFC, and GPS connectivity. Even an FM radio is found on the two. The LTE Bands that they support, however, are different. The PM-0770 supports LTE bands 1, 3, 5, 7, 8, and 20, while the PM-0771 can run only on bands 2, 4, 7, and 17. 

Specs are not being listed in the FCC's documents, as usual. But we do believe that hardware-wise, the Sony Xperia M2 Aqua will be very similar to the Xperia M2. As for their size, the M2 and M2 Aqua are pretty much identical, judging by what is indicated in the papers.

That's all we know about this Sony Xperia M2 Aqua right now. We'll update you in case we learn more. In the meantime, you may check out our Sony Xperia M2 review.

Waterproof in the mid range/lower range would be a great signature trait for sony.

the V was actually more of a Flagship than a midrange... it was the "T" waterproof... though they did lowered front facing camera resolution to VGA, and internal memory to 8GB... I remember when I wanted to get a Xperia I was undicided between the older Acro S and the V... and I am glad I went with the Acro S, even though the processor was slower... The Acro S included the charging dock, it still sport microHDMI port (I still owned a couple of cables), it had 16GB internally, 1.2 MP front camera and the charging dock did not prevent the use of any other port unlike the V where the microUSB was hidden by its dock, making the MHL useless there... Still the V was definitely high end, much like the ZR was also high end.
