The Sony Xperia high-end smartphones are very well known and recognised by their water resistant feature. The Xperia Z2 is IP58 certified which means it will survive a plunge to a depth of two meters. That’s deeper than most family swimming pools so we should be virtually safe in any urban environment. Most new device that comes from the Sony stables nowadays also sports the same type of waterproofing that the Xperia Z2 carries. However the devices offered are still a little bit out of reach for users who are on a budget.

Not any more with Sony’s newest mid-range smartphone, the Xperia M2 Aqua. The Aqua name is obviously a tell tale of the waterproofing technology that it carries; IP68 certified Sony OmniBalance glass design. With IP68 certification the enclosure of this device outdoes the Xperia Z2 in dustproofing, not bad. What you get with this device is the same as the original Xperia M2 smartphone – Snapdragon 400 running at 1.2 GHz, 1GB of RAM, 8GB internal storage, MicroSD slot, 8 MegaPixel camera at the back, 4G LTE, Wi-Fi, NFC, Bluetooth, 4.8-inches qHD display (that’s quarter for you, not Quad), 2,300 mAh battery inside, running on Android 4.4 KitKat. Overall just an average spec sheet with nothing to shout about.
There are no official details about when it will arrive in this side of the world but we are guessing soon as rumours go. We do not know how much it will be priced yet either but we are guessing somewhere within RM1000-Rm1500 range. So for those of you who is looking for a water resistant and dust proof device, here you go, we do not know when you can get it, but here you go.
