Sony Xperia M4 Aqua in white springs a leak; still water resistant though
Just yesterday, we showed you a leaked image of the Sony Xperia M4 Aqua. With a name like Aqua, you would figure that this Android mid-ranger would carry IP certification, which it does. While Sony hasn't released the number, we are guessing that it would be around IP68 certification, which would allow the device to be submerged to as deep as 3.2 feet for 30 minutes and walk away unscathed. In other words, the Xperia M4 could do the backfloat in your toilet and still survive. The phone is water resistant even without a flap to cover the USB port.

While yesterday's leak showed the Sony Xperia M4 Aqua in red, today's image shows the phone in white. You might notice that there is a strong resemblance between the Xperia M4 Aqua and the Sony Xperia Z3. But specs-wise, the former shows its true colors as a mid-range model.

The Sony Xperia M4 Aqua features a 5.2-inch screen with a 720 x 1280 resolution. A 64-bit Snapdragon 610 CPU is under the hood and there will be 2GB of RAM inside. 16GB of native storage is on board. A 13MP camera graces the rear of the phone while a 5MP "selfie" shooter can be found on front.

Sony won't be introducing a new flagship at MWC, unlike last year when the Sony Xperia Z2was unveiled. Heck, the company is making noise about getting out of the game altogether. But at least for one more day, Sony will be capturing our attention at MWC by letting us see the Xperia M4 Aqua and the Sony Xperia Z4 Tablet in Barcelona. The latter was unceremoniously unveiled by accident the other day and sounds like a beast with a 10.1-inch screen, resolution of 1440 x 2560, or 1600 x 2560, and a 64-bit Snapdragon 810 under the hood. Toss in 4GB of RAM, 32GB of native storage and resistance to dust and water, and you have a reason to keep an eye on Sony's March 3rd MWC announcement.
