Sony Xperia M4 Aqua now available in the US via Amazon
Although the introductory price announced for the waterproof Sony Xperia M4 Aqua back in March was roughly $310 USD (pre-orders on the German Amazon website), it seems that those interested to acquire it from Amazon.com have to pay a bit more now. US customers can finally purchase the Xperia M4 Aqua from Amazon.com for $349 USD.
The variant available on Amazon.com has 4G LTE connectivity and 8 GB of internal storage (additional storage up to 32 GB also available thanks to a microSD slot). Its name is E2303 and can only be found in black. The remaining specs come without any surprises for those familiar with this mid-ranger: Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 SoC, 2 GB RAM, 5-inch IPS HD multitouch screen, 5 MP front and 13 MP back camera, Bluetooth 4.1, DLNA, GPS, NFC, as well as an embedded lithium-ion power pack with 2400 mAh, enough to feed the handset for over 13 hours of talk time and 779 hours in standby mode.
Sony Xperia M4 Aqua is one of the few smartphones rated IP68 for protection from the elements and comes loaded with Android 5.0 Lollipop. The handset is currently being sold by a third party on Amazon and comes unlocked, without carrier branding.
