Sony has a rather expansive Xperia line-up and the latest one to join is the Xperia M, an entry-level smartphone that decided to signify itself by choosing the very middle letter in the alphabet. Diving right into the specs, we see that it has a 4″ 854×480 display, 1GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4 processor, 1GB RAM, 5-megapixel camera, 4GB storage, microSD card slot, on-screen navigation keys, and as a nice addition, a dedicated camera button. Another important feature is that there will be both a single-SIM version as well as a dual-SIM model.
A variety of different color options will be available with the single-SIM model launching in black, white, purple, and yellow. The dual-SIM variant is a little less vibrant with just black, white, and purple options. Both models do come with Jelly Bean although it’s important to note that the single-SIM model has Android 4.1 Jelly Bean while it’s dual-SIM brother has Android 4.2 Jelly Bean. Both phones are slated to roll out globally during Q3.
Just like the letter it chose for its name, the Xperia M sits solidly in the middle of phones. It’s definitely not high-end and barely mid-range, but it does have some features that set it above other entry-level options. And for being an entry-level phone, it actually has a rather snazzy design to allow it to stand out. You can watch the little promo video that Sony put together below if you’re interested. Any takers for the Xperia M?
