While we were focused on Sony’s flagship announcements from earlier in the day, the manufacturer also announced the Xperia M2 smartphone as a midrange offering targeted towards developing markets around the world.
The smartphone features a design similar to the flagship Xperia handsets, but with a substantially downgraded hardware specs sheet. The Xperia M2 features a 4.8 inch 960 x 540 resolution display, an 8 megapixel camera, a quad core 1.2 GHz Snapdragon 400 chipset, 1GB of RAM and 8GB of internal storage.
The smartphone runs Android 4.3 Jelly Bean out of the box with no word on future updates, although it is capable of running Android 4.4. There’s no 4G LTE on board, so customers will have to settle for 3G HSPA networks. Sony plans to launch the smartphone in global markets relatively soon with no word on the pricing yet.
The smartphone will certainly go unnoticed when several other smartphones hit our news feed over the coming days, but midrange devices like these sell a great deal in Asian and European markets.
