IP68 Certified

Like its bigger Xperia sibling, the M4 Aqua’s big draw is its IP65/8 certification. This makes the device water proof up to 1.5 meters, and will survive up to 30 minutes under water. Crafted from the ground up, Xperia M4 Aqua has an understated premium design, a tempered glass display, and a dust and waterproof body. It was also reengineered to do away with the cap that covers the microUSB.

Exmor RS

For a mid-range device, the M4 Aqua sports a 13MP camera powered by Sony’s Exmor RS mobile sensor. It features a large F2.0 aperture and ISO sensitivity up to 3200. Along with its highly touted intelligent Superior Auto Mode, the camera can analyze up to 52 different scenarios, allowing you to create vivid shots, even in low-light or against strong backlight.

  1. .and which store in the Philippines is selling the “16GB” model of this xperia m4 aqua?????
    16GB and dual sim models are nowhere to be found, except of course in online stores, where this device is imported and therefore no manufacturer warranty!
