Sony Mobile has this morning announced the mid-range Xperia M2 (D2303, D2305, D2306) and its dual-SIM equivalent, the Xperia M2 dual (D2302, S50h). The Xperia M2 comes with a 4.8-inch qHD (540 x 960) display (229 PPI), OmniBalance design and is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 chipset (MSM8926 for LTE models, MSM8226 for HSPA+ models), offering a 1.2GHz quad-core processor and Adreno 305 graphics.
Other features include 1GB RAM, 8GB internal storage (5GB usable), a microSD memory card slot, 8MP Exmor RS camera (no front camera), Bluetooth 4.0, NFC and a 2300mAh sealed battery good for 13 hours and 25 minutes of GSM talk time. It will also come with the latest battery STAMINA mode 3.0.
The Xperia M dual will allow users to set up both SIM cards independently with custom ring tones and easily choose between SIMs before making calls or sending texts. Sony’s dual SIM management technology means that users can keep both SIMs active and never miss a call, even when talking on one of them.
Xperia M2 owners will be able to download three of the latest films, such as Captain Phillips and White House Down. They will also get a 30-day trial of the Music Unlimited service and a range of PlayStation Mobile included too.
The Xperia M2 is a reasonably slim handset for a mid-ranger, with a thickness of just 8.64mm (dimensions: 139.65 x 71.14 x 8.64mm) and weighs 148 grams. The Xperia M2 will be available in three colours (black, white and purple) and launch with Android 4.3 Jelly Bean in April 2014.
