Sony hosting press event on May 26 in India
Sony India has sent out invites to the tech press in India for a press event on May 26. The company is expected to launch the M4 Aqua smartphone on the day, but we won’t be surprised if they introduce other devices too, because it is unlikely they are hosting a launch event just for a mid-range smartphone.
As the name suggests, Sony Xperia M4 Aqua is a waterproof smartphone. It features a 5-inch 720p HD display, 1.5GHz octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 processor, Android 5.0 and 2GB of RAM.
There is no word on the pricing at this point.

The company is offering two versions of the dual-SIM variant – one with both SIM cards supporting 4G LTE, other with one SIM for 4G and other for 2G.
There is no word on when this dual-SIM variant will reach other markets. [via]
