Sony Xperia M4 Aqua to be announced at MWC 2015 alongside the Z4 Tablet

Sony Xperia M4 Aqua to be announced at MWC 2015 alongside the Z4 Tablet
Yesterday, we told you that Sony was getting ready to announce an Xperia Z4 Tablet at MWC 2015 next week. But the new slate isn't the only product that Sony will showcase in Barcelona: according to XperiaBlog, the company will also reveal a new water-resistant smartphone called Xperia M4 Aqua.

Obviously, the M4 Aqua will be the successor to last year's Xperia M2 Aqua (it seems that Sony is launching an M4 even though it didn't introduce any M3 models).

Like the Xperia Z4 Tablet, the M4 Aqua should run Android 5.0 Lollipop out of the box. While that's the only thing we know about the upcoming handset, we're assuming that, just like the M2 Aqua (pictured above), the M4 will be a mid-range device with LTE connectivity and one of the highest levels of waterproofing available on a smartphone: IP68 - meaning it can survive underwater (up to 1 meter) for more than 30 minutes.

As you may have heard, the Xperia Z4 flagship smartphone isn't expected to be announced at MWC. Instead, Sony may plan to launch the Z4 sometime in the summer. Well, we'll be in Barcelona during MWC 2015, so stick around for all the major (and not so major) announcements from the show.

You are new to sony devices i guess. the number is dictated by a new z series number. example: z4 tablet = e4 = m4 = z4 (soon). z2 tablet = z2 = m2 = t2 ultra, etc.

hmmm. the issue that remains than is if you are new to Sony. You clearly disagree, while Amir1 thinks you are new to Sony. Only solution is, you both have to agree to disagree.

Hopefully the pricing is right. Sony is being hurt of their pricing in their mid range category.

I really think Sony should dump the cluttering method and just stick with the Zs. But hey, it's their wallet to burn so it wouldn't matter if I forget the other letters.

I think they shouldn't, they don't have semi-religion behind them to forget about everything but flagships.

Lol Microsoft will be laughing at your comment because the mobile division of Nokia is not going anywhere away from them.

Front facing speakers at a decent price with the SD610/615 (as rumoured before) would make this a very nice midranger.

And two versions, with 4,7" and 5,3" screen.
