Sony confirms: new water resistant device(s) will be announced at MWC 2015
Shortly after promising to announce something "slimmer, lighter and brighter" at MWC 2015, Sony today indirectly confirmed that we'll see at least one new water resistant Xperia device next week.

Sony says that we should "get ready to make a splash" on March 2, when the company will host its MWC press conference. Earlier today, we saw a couple of images that seem to show the unannounced Xperia Z4 Tablet and the Xperia M4 Aqua smartphone, which will most likely be unveiled by Sony on March 2. Both new Xperias will probably be IP68-certified.

The Xperia Z4 Tablet appears to be the successor to the Z2 Tablet, reportedly featuring a 10.1 inch, 2K display, "leading battery life", and an octa-core Snapdragon 810 processor. As for the Xperia M4 Aqua, this is probably a mid-range handset. Both devices should run Android 5.0 Lollipop out of the box. It's unlikely that we'll see the Xperia Z4 smartphone at MWC next week, but, who knows, maybe Sony is planning to surprise us.

We'll be in Barcelona during MWC to keep you updated with all the latest announcements.

Yeah, until you accidentally drop your phone in the water or in the sand you'll wish your phone have 'attractive' features like that.

It's a rare commodity now considering the s6 is rumored to do away with water resistance.

Well if you ask me, it is more attractive then SGS6 if it doesn't have sd card and water resistance, two very sensible features that removing just makes me wonder what the heck is going on.
