While we are disappointed that the Xperia Z4 or Z3+ flagship didn’t go official in India today, the company did reveal the Sony Xperia C4 and Xperia M4 Aqua smartphones which are its latest additions to the 2015 portfolio. The former handset is the newest selfie-focused release and the latter is a water-resistant mid-range option.
The Sony Xperia C4 continues the selfie trend by offering a high resolution front-facing camera with a dedicated LED flash. The imager is rated at 5MP, while the rear shooter is a 13MP sensor. The phone is a pretty decent upgrade over last year’s model. It comes with a 5.5-inch 1920 x 1080 pixel IPS LCD panel and runs Android 5.0 Lollipop out of the box.
Additionally, the phone is powered by a 64-bit octa core MediaTek processor with Mali T760 graphics. The innards also comprise of 2GB RAM, 16GB flash storage and a microSD card slot which supports up to 128GB. Sony is bringing the dual SIM version of its selfie handset to India and it might also offer 4G LTE connectivity.
Lastly, the handset packs a 2600mAh battery that can deliver just under 13 hours of talk time or around 682 hours of standby. The Xperia M4 Aqua takes on a design that’s quite similar to Xperia Z4 and is IP65/IP68 certified dust- and water-resistant. This handset also runs Android Lollipop and promises 2-day battery life.
