Sony teases waterproof device, possibly the M4 Aqua?
Sony has just sent out another teaser for MWC 2015, this time featuring a water-centric vibe. The tweet reads “Get ready to make a splash… All will be revealed 02.03.2015.” The attached image shows a screen covered in water droplets, obviously eluding to some sort of IPxx rating, or even the recently-rumored Xperia M4 Aqua handset.

Just yesterday, a new leak showed us pictures of Sony’s upcoming devices, including the Xperia Z4 Tablet and the Xperia M4 Aqua. Both of these devices are rumored to feature IP68 certification for water resistance, which would fit right in line with this new tease from the company. Furthermore, the M4 Aqua is rumored to feature a 5.2-inch 720p display, a 1.5GHz quad-core Snapdragon 610 backed by 2GB of RAM. It’s also rumored to have a 13MP rear-facing camera, a 5MP front-facing camera and will run Android 5.0 Lollipop out of the box. Of course, none of these specifications are confirmed yet, so we’ll have to wait and see what the company unveils on March 2nd.
A few days ago we saw another leak of the Xperia Z4 Tablet, which unfortunately didn’t tell us too much about the new device. From what we’ve gathered so far, the new tablet will come with a 2K display, and will feature “the latest ultra fast processor” and “industry leading battery performance”.
