Apart from the high-end Z2 tablet and smartphone which Sony announced today, the company has also upgraded their mid-range line with a new smartphone: the Sony Xperia M2. Similar in design with the already known Z1 Compact, the mid-range M2 strays a bit from the known path, by having a large screen and pretty good specs.

Sony Xperia M2 Specs

Sony had a lot of surprises today, and they’ve certainly spared no expense when it comes to the hardware that goes into their devices. Here’s a short list of the specs which go into the Xperia M2:

  • 4.8-inch qHD display with a resolution of 960 x 540 pixels
  • 8MP rear camera with Exmor RS Sensor which features Autoscene Recognition and HDR
  • 1.2GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 CPU
  • 2,300mAh battery with  STAMINA Mode 3.0
  • NFC technology
  • LTE

The device is marketed as a mid-range smartphone, and the specs that is scores make it one of the best in its class. The main competitor for this device can be the Moto G, which is also an awesome device for its price. The deciding factor in this fight might actually be the price at which Sony will launch it. sony-xperia-m2

In order to keep true to Sony’s reputation as a multimedia company, the Xperia M2 comes equipped with some multimedia apps connected to the Sony Entertainment Network5. Content is available online and offline, and for online content, users can utilize the power of the 4G LTE networks on which this device works.

Sony has gone even one step further by marketing the Xperia M2 in two versions: regular and the dual-SIM Xperia M2dual8. The dual-SIM version can utilize the two networks independently, allowing the user to set up custom ringtones and modify other options for each independent SIM.

Unlike the other products which were presented by Sony today, the Xperia M2 will be launched in April 2014, and although Sony didn’t talk too much about the price, the device is expected to go for around €220.
