Sony's mobile division still lags behind Samsung, LG and HTC in all but one area: waterproofing.
So it's no surprise to see the company's mid-range Xperia M2 getting an element-resistant remake as the M2 Aqua.
The device comes with IP65/68 waterproofing, and will sit in depths of 1.5 meters for up to half an hour without complaint.
The rest of the spec list is unchanged from the original that debuted five months ago, with a 1.2GHz quad-core Snapdragon 400, LTE, a 2,300mAh battery and 8-megapixel camera.
There's no word on pricing, but we'd expect it to come in above the €220 ($300) that the vanilla M2 was marked up at, and it'll launch in the fall, destined for Latin America, Asia Pacific and Europe.
