Sony Xperia M2

Description

The Sony Xperia M2 has grown considerably, and its display now measures in at 4.8-inches. In comparison, the amount of pixels went through only a minor update - a 540x960 qHD resolution. The processor, now a respectable 1.2GHz quad-core Snapdragon 400, has also seen an upgrade, and allows the Xperia M2 to hook up to a 4G LTE network. While on the topic of connectivity, its worth pointing out that the M2 will also come in a dual SIM version. The rest of the hardware highlights include an 8-megapixel camera, with Sony's proven Exmor RS sensor, 1GB of RAM and 8GB of internal storage, and a fairly large, 2300mAh battery. The M2 will come in the three signature Xperia colors: black, white and purple, and will see a global launch starting April 2014.

This device is also known as Sony D2306
