Sony has recently been unveiling quite a few Android smartphones from its popular Xperia series line-up, and the latest addition to that list is the new Sony Xperia M, which has now been listed online with a price tag of Rs. 12,990 in India.
The best part is Sony has started to provide special priority to the emerging Indian market. It is launching not only high-end phones like Xperia Z Ultra for potential customers but also budget Android smartphones like the latest avatar Xperia M.
The new entry has not yet been launched officially by the company, but leading online retailer Saholic has listed it on its website for Rs. 12,990. The retailer has even tweeted that the mobile will be available from August 23 to the interested buyers.
The Sony Xperia M is supported by 1GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4 Plus MSM8227 processor while having the RAM capacity of mere 1GB. It sports an awesome 4-inch long TFT LCD display that can offer resolution of 480*854 pixels. The screen is scratch-resistant too, which is one of the best features of this device.
The phone runs on Android 4.1 Jelly Bean Operating System, which has been coupled with Sony's own Timescape UI on top. It is having 4GB of internal memory which can be further expanded up to 32GB with the help of a microSD card. It features a 5-megapixel rear camera (LED flash enabled) and a VGA front facing camera for video calling and more. The advanced connectivity options are also available in this Android phone like 3G, Bluetooth, aGPS, Wi-Fi and NFC.
The Xperia M is backed up with a decent 1,750mAh battery, which can easily deliver talk time period of 10 hours and standby time of huge 504 hours, as per the company’s claim. The listing is clearly stating that the upcoming smartphone will be launched in four different colour variants- Purple, White, Lime and Black.
It has to be added here that Sony announced the Xperia M and its dual SIM version Sony Xperia M dual together in June 2013. The company even declared that both the smartphones will be rolling out from the third quarter of 2013, and as the things are happening it looks like that it is keeping it promises.

Sony Xperia M is a good addition to the Indian market in the mid-range Android phone base. I have added all the key specifications and price of this phone here, and I hope it’ll certainly help you to decide whether to go for it or not.
It is having a super-fast processor, decent memory, modest battery back-up and solid rear camera. Though its front camera is a VGA one, and many other companies are providing better front camera with much lesser prices. Let’s see how will it perform in the market in the days to come?
