Sony has launched a variant of its Xperia M2 smartphone, which the company claims is the world's most waterproof phone. The Xperia M2 Aqua has exactly the same specifications as the original Xperia M2, including identical 1.2GHz quad-core processors and rear 8-megapixel cameras, except it introduces IP65/68 waterproofing to the design. Sony has yet to reveal a price for the Xperia M2 Aqua, but it will be available in a choice of two colors in the Fall in Latin America, Asia Pacific, and European markets.
