Sony Xperia M4 Aqua will be cheaper than expected, pre-orders now available in Europe
Yesterday, when Sony announced the Xperia M4 Aqua, it mentioned that the handset's suggested retail price would be around €299. However, it turns out that the actual price will be lower (though not much lower).

Amazon Germany is now taking pre-orders for the Xperia M4 Aqua, asking €279 for an unlocked unit, and allowing customers to choose between the black and white color versions of the smartphone.

While the M4 Aqua looks a lot like Sony's Xperia Z3 flagship, it's just a mid-end handset that's made out of plastic. But it' still dust-and water-resistant (IP68-certified), and runs the latest Android 5.0 Lollipop. The new Xperia is powered by a 64-bit, octa-core Snapdragon 615 processor, while also offering 2 GB of RAM, and 16 GB of expandable internal memory. Other features include a 5 MP front-facing camera, 13 MP rear camera, and a 2400 mAh battery. Check out our Xperia M4 Aqua hands-on for a closer look at the device.

Sony said that the M4 Aqua would be available this Spring in no less than 80 countries around the world. The US wasn't specifically mentioned, but we assume it's included in that list of 80 markets. The new smartphone will probably cost around $280 if it reaches the US. Would you consider buying it at this price?
