Rogers, Fido among providers to see Sony phone by month end
Canadians holding out for one of Sony's latest phones need wait no longer than the end of May. The Sony Xperia M2, a mid-range phone with Xperia Z2 styling and less power, will be making it to Canada through carriers Rogers and Fido. An unlocked version of the phone is to follow, available through Sony's online store.
The phone features a 4.8-inch, 960x540 qHD display powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 1.2 GHz quad core processor with Adreno 305 graphics and LTE. Other features include 1 GB of RAM, an 8MP Exmor RS camera, 8GB of onboard storage, Bluetooth 4.0 and a 2,300 mAh battery with Sony's stamina mode 3.0.
While not yet listed, an unlocked version of the phone will be available via the Sony store website. The Xperia M2 will likely join the Xperia Z2 as a pre-order before the end of May. The Canadian availability of the M2 is matched by the phone's launch in Russia for $380.
