Sony Mobiles has today launched Xperia C4 Dual and M4 Aqua in India, which were earlier announced globally. While The Xperia M4 Aqua claims to be the first Midrange waterproof smartphone in India, The Xperia C4 dual is meant for the selfie obsessed and includes a flash alongside the front camera sensor.
The Sony Xperia M4 Aqua has been launched for 24,990 INR, which doesn’t seem very mid-range post arrival of Chinese competition. Sony will unveil the price of Xperia C4 dual later in Mid-june, when it is scheduled to hit retail shelves.
Now talking of specs, Xperia M4 Aqua is a 5 Inch display phone with 720p HD crispness and 1.5 GHz octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 thumbing in the background. There is 2 GB RAM, 16 GB expandable storage and Android 5.0 Lollipop to further sweeten the pot.
On the rear side, there is a 13 MP camera with LED flash and 1080p video recording capability. On the front sider, there is a 5 MP selfie shooter with wide angle lens and 720P Video recording for good quality video chats.
Other features include 4G LTE, Bluetooth 4.1, GPS, Dual SIM, NFC, A 2600 mAh battery and IP65 certification. Notably, Sony has managed to squeeze all this hardware in a 7.3 mm casing.
Sony Xperia C4 Dual on the other hand employs the rival camp MT6752 octa core chipset clocked at 1.7 GHz and assisted by Mali T760 GPU. Similar to M4 Aqua there is 2 GB RAM, 16 GB expandable internal storage and Android 5.0 Lollipop.
The display however has gone bigger and sharper. Xperia C4 dual includes a 5.5 inch Full HD 1080P IPS LCD display with Scratch resistant layer on top.

Sony has used MediaTek chipset to offset disproportional increase in price, but Xperia C4 Dual should be a tad bit more expensive.
