Sony Xperia M2 Aqua is the waterproof version of Sony's midrange smartphone Xperia M2 that was introduced at the Mobile World Congress 2014. Launched in August 2014, this model comes with IP65/IP68 compliance for dust-proofing and water resistance for up to 30 minutes of immersion underwater at a depth of 1.5m. This practically means that the phone remains safe even when used in heavy rain or in the swimming pool for some fun photography.

The handset offers a large screen size with a 4.8-inch IPS touch display and a qHD resolution of 960 x 540 pixels at 230ppi pixel density. The in-plane switching display is scratch resistant and supports multitouch. The M2 Aqua maintains Xperia's OmniBalance design and sits at a sleek 8.6mm width. It is powered by Google's Android OS v4.4 (KitKat) and is equipped with Qualcomm's Snapdragon 400 SoC which houses a 1.2GHz Quad-core app processor. It also offers a built-in Adreno 305 graphics processor which delivers superior performance for multimedia including 3D/motion games and Full HD movies. The internal ROM comes with 8GB capacity while storage can be extended up to 32GB by adding a separate microSD memory card.

Sony Xperia M2 Aqua sports an 8MP Sony Exmor RS image sensor with built-in SteadyShot mode and video stabilization capability. It allows Timeshift burst for underwater photography with 31 frames in just 2 seconds and captures images without any blur, recognizes scenes and offers smile shutter function as well. You can turn on the HDR mode for high definition image capture.
