Sony Xperia M2 and M2 dual with 4.8-inch display, quad-core processor, 8MP camera, Android 4.3 Jelly Bean officially announced
Along with Xperia Z2 and Z2 Tablet, Sony has also launched a mid range smartphone in the form of Xperia M2 which will come in single as well as dual SIM guise. It has a 4.8-inch qHD capacitive touch screen display which has a resolution of 960 x 540 pixels. We think that Sony should have made it atleast a 720p unit as the qHD resolution looks a bit stretched on a 4.8-inch screen. It runs on Android 4.3 Jelly Bean and might get the KitKat treatment as well in near future.
Under the hood is a 1.2GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM8928 processor for the LTE variant and the MSM8226 variant for the 3G variant. It teams up with an Adreno 305 GPU to take care of your graphics needs. The processor is pretty much the same unit as you get in the Moto G. Sony has given it a decent imaging department for a mid ranger and it comes with an 8MP rear camera with LED flash and ability to record 1080p videos.
It misses out on a front facing camera which we seriously don't understand. The RAM capacity stands at 1GB and the internal storage capacity of the smartphone stands at 8GB. It can be further expanded with the help of a microSD card by another 32GB. It gets LTE and 3G HSPA+ (depends on region) for connectivity in addition to Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS and NFC.
Giving it the juice is a 2,300 mAh Battery. It will be available in Black, White and Purple colours for the single as well as dual SIM variant. Its global roll out will start in April 2014. Expect it to rival the likes of the Grand Neo and Moto G in India with a sub Rs 20,000 price tag.
