The Xperia M features mid- to low-range specs and runs the Android operating system, Android 4.1 to be exact. The smartphone also features a 4-inch 854×480 resolution display with scratch-resistant glass, a 5-megapixel Exmor RS sensor rear-facing camera and a VGA front-facing camera.
Running on a 1GHz Snapdragon S4 SoC processor, the smartphone comes equipped with 1GB of RAM and 4GB of internal storage, which can be expanded to 64GB via a microSD card slot. The Xperia M also boasts Sony’s OmniBalance design, matching the flagship Xperia Z, and a customizable notification light.
Sans LTE support, the Xperia M will function on the HSPA+ network. However the smartphone does have one-touch functions with NFC and screen mirroring and of course, Sony’s set of media applications and software.
The Xperia M will be available worldwide starting in the third quarter of 2013, but no more specific information was given by Sony. The device is available with either single or dual SIM card slots and can be purchased in black, purple and white. Dual SIM buyers can also opt for a yellow color. No pricing or carrier information is available at the time of this writing.
