Sony has just released the Xperia M2 Acqua which is water proof for 30 minutes in up to 1.5 meters of fresh water. It is also dust proof.
Why does this matter? Well, usually these type of features only come with the flagship models. This is however a mid range smartphone so these features sets the device apart from competitors.
So not only is your Xperia M2 protected from the rain now, you could also take it swimming and take a couple of shots under water.
The Xperia M2 has a 4.8″ 540 x 960 display and is equipped with a 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, 8MP camera and has 8GB of storage.
