Sony has today introduced its new low-to-mid range Android smartphone, the Xperia M.
The new handset features a 4-inch 854×480 display with scratch resistant glass, a dual-core 1GHz Snapdragon S4, 1GB of RAM, 4GB of on-board storage and a microSD slot to support up to 64GB cards.
The Xperia M has a 5MP rear camera with Exmor RS sensor, and a front-facing one for video calls.
There’s a 1750mAh battery housed in a 124x62x9.3 chassis, which comes in black, white, purple and yellow.
The phone comes in single and dual SIM versions. The dual SIM variant lets users select between two SIMs before making a call or sending a message. Each SIM card can also be customised separately – for example, a formal ring for business or another tune for pleasure.
"Consumers looking for their first steps into the world of Xperia smartphones would be well-advised to look at Xperia M or Xperia M dual," said Calum MacDougall , director of Xperia Marketing at Sony Mobile Communications.
"Both models benefit from Sony’s proven innovation and engineering expertise, and are perfect for those who want the premium technology and experiences often only associated with high-end models."
Sony’s Xperia M will be available globally from Q3 2013.
