The Sony Xperia M4 Aqua is already shaping up to be an enticingly affordable device with solid specs and a slick design. The handset was launched at MWC earlier in the week and offers mid-range hardware, waterproofing, and a premium feel and look. Sony announced that the device would carry a reasonable retail price of $335, but it seems the handset will be even more affordable.Pre-orders have started in Europe and the Xperia M4 Aqua is selling below its recommended price, with Amazon Germany listing it for 279 Euros, which is around $300. A device that was already extremely interesting at its price has just become even more enticing. A similar thing happened with the Xperia Z3 flagship launched last September, with retailers lowering the RRP from launch. The handset will be Sony's mid-range effort for 2015, and as the name suggests it comes with the company's now familiar waterproofing. That means it can be dunked into depths of up to 1.5 meters and last for 30 minutes. However, there is more to the Xperia M4 Aqua than that, including a very pleasing design and some solid specs. It comes with a 5.2-inch 720p screen, a 64-bit Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 chipset, 2GB of RAM, Android 5.0 Lollipop, a 13 megapixel snapper around back, and a 5 megapixel selfie quality lens on the front.
