Design that protects
The Xperia M2 Aqua mobile brings you the same innovation in waterproof design as Sony premium smartphones, protecting against water as well as fine dust particles.
Capture the underwater action
With the waterproof Xperia M2 Aqua, you can take photos and videos 1.5 metres under freshwater for up to 30 minutes. Just remember, all covers for the micro USB port, the micro SIM slot and the memory card slot must be firmly closed.
IP (Ingress Protection) rating
Xperia M2 Aqua has been given an IP rating of 65/68. This is a standard that measures a device’s resistance levels to both dust (IP6x being dust tight) and water (IPx5 being protected against water jets – IPx8 being protected against submersion).
The all-terrain smartphone
Not only is the Xperia M2 Aqua mobile waterproof, but to maximise its durability we’ve also made it dust tight to the highest IP rating for a smartphone.
Just like our flagship phones, the Xperia M2 Aqua oozes quality. With its subtle metallic frame, beautifully understated matte finish on the back and Sony’s distinctive aluminium power button, this smartphone is designed to perfection. Match your style and choose your Xperia M2 Aqua in either classic black, fresh white or unique copper.
8MP camera for your best moments
The Xperia M2 Aqua mobile boasts an 8-megapixel camera for exceptional pictures. The camera also features an Exmor RS™ for mobile image sensor and HDR for both pictures and videos, giving you amazing definition and luminosity in any light.
Superior Auto. Superior photos.
From illuminated night views to close-up macro photos, Superior Auto recognises up to 36 scene types and adjusts the settings automatically, to help you get the best photos anywhere, at any time. As the default camera mode, Superior Auto turns HDR on or off depending on your scene. HDR mode takes multiple shots with varied exposures and then merges them together to make your photos look natural – even in backlit conditions.
HDR for photos and video – natural colours in any light
HDR (High Dynamic Range) is an imaging technology that gives you clear photos against strong backlight. With HDR, your Android smartphone captures the same image at different exposure levels and layers them to create one optimised photo. And thanks to HDR for video, you can film in high contrast situations. You get great footage, even if your subject stands in front of a window or the setting sun.
Exmor RS™ for mobile – stunning shots in any light
The camera is built with the same modules as leading Sony cameras. Exmor RS™ for mobile is an evolution of our Sony image sensor technology, with a next-generation BSI light sensor. By adopting the technology of luminance and colour noise reduction, we’ve created a camera that snaps highly detailed shots with low noise – even in challenging lighting conditions. You can now also reproduce objects in more vivid colours and capture night images and faces with stunning clarity.
Shoot perfect videos with SteadyShot™
Shooting a steady video with an everyday smartphone isn’t easy. With the Xperia M2 Aqua, it’s a different story. SteadyShot™ compensates for your movements, making panning smoother and the image more stable even in Full HD 1080 video. The outcome is gorgeously steady videos.
Timeshift burst – Never miss the moment
This intelligent app lets you capture 31 frames in two seconds. So, when you have just a few precious seconds to capture your child’s first dip, or friends diving into the pool, Timeshift burst will guarantee you the perfect shot.
With Social live, you can broadcast every precious moment as it happens live via Facebook. Get your friends’ responses right on the screen and keep the conversation going all in real time.
Select an artistic effect and apply it to your photos. Choose between a nostalgic effect like Kaleidoscope – or whatever suits your mood.
Switch your camera to AR effect mode and add fun animations to your photos and videos. Ranging from dinosaurs to ocean-life, these fully customisable themes can be easily edited.
More camera apps to download
Besides the Xperia camera apps that come pre-installed, there’s a whole range of extra apps for you to enjoy. And as new apps are continuously being released, your camera will always be able to offer you fresh and exciting experiences.
Enjoy every vibrant detail
The Xperia M2 Aqua’s display beautifully illustrates Sony’s dedication to quality craftsmanship. It comes with a big, bright 4.8” qHD display that really brings your favourite entertainment to life. And the IPS gives an excellent viewing angle and accurate colours from edge to edge. Built with the same expertise that brought you Sony’s best TV technologies, and with super-fast LTE, things have never looked better.
Fast, faster, LTE
Your Quad-core phone has a built-in LTE/4G modem. This enables blazing Internet connections with up to 150 Mbit/s download and 50 MBit/s upload speeds.
A Quad-core phone with lightning-fast performance
Run multiple apps simultaneously, surf the web with shorter loading time and stream beautifully lag-free videos. The advanced Qualcomm Snapdragon 1.2 GHz Quad-core processor gives you maximum performance and speed without draining your battery. The processor is asynchronous, which means each core is powered up and down independently. So you get the precise amount of power when you need it, without wasting power when you don’t.
Ready for business
Blazing fast speeds make the Xperia M2 Aqua perfect for getting it all done in business. Add secure encryption, business-smart productivity apps and a durable waterproof design, and this smartphone is your best business partner yet.
