It was earlier in February this year that the Sony Xperia M2 was announced, and that particular smartphone planted itself firmly within the realms of the mid-range market, delivering 4.8” of viewing goodness alongside LTE connectivity. It does look as though the Xperia M2 is about to get an updated version of itself, where two devices that go by the model numbers PM-0770 and PM-0771 have surfaced over at the FCC, in addition to an XML file located on Sony’s website that tells of the two smartphones’ upcoming moniker – which would be the Sony Xperia M2 Aqua.
On paper, it is widely expected that both the Sony PM-0770 and PM-0771 will be a pair of variants of an unannounced Sony Xperia M2 Aqua. Regardless of the model number that you pick up, it will in all probability feature a level of water resistance, which is currently missing on the original Xperia M2 lacks.
Shared hardware specifications between the two models would be Wi-Fi a/b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0 LE, ANT+, NFC, and GPS connectivity, alongside an FM radio. The PM-0770, however, will play nice with LTE bands 1, 3, 5, 7, 8, and 20, where as the PM-0771 is compatible with just bands 2, 4, 7, and 17. It does look as though taking the water resistant route is going to be popular with Sony Mobile.
