Sony Aqua M4 Offers Top-End Features on a Budget

While most people expected a flagship device, the Z4, the M4 is still a pretty cool device for what it offers but doesn’t cost as much.

The display is a 5” 720p display with scratch-resistant glass. As is the case with the Z4 Tablet, the M4 comes with IP68 certification which means it is dust-tight and can survive a 1.5m dip for 30 minutes. It also has the same capless microUSB port onboard.

Underneath, you’ll get the mid-range 64-bit Snapdragon 615 chipset, which happens to be octa-core, with 2 GB worth RAM and 8 or 16 GB worth internal storage. At the back sits a 13 mp camera with flash and 1080p video, coupled by a 5 m camera at the front.

For connectivity, you get LTE, Bluetooth 4.1, GPS and NFC. The 2,400 mAh battery completes the balance sheet.
