Electronics giant Sony has launched its new mid-range smartphone, the Xperia M, for the Indian market. The company has priced the latest phone at Rs. 13,990. The new smartphone has been launched in India in order to compete with the existing rivals like Samsung and Apple.


The smartphone will also be challenging other phone companies, such as Micromax and Karbonn, which are companies based in India. Micromax and Karbon are slowly gaining the confidence of domestic phone users. The new Xperia M has a 4-inch display and is powered by a 1GHz dual-core Qualcomm processor.

Additional specifications of the device include 1 GB of RAM, 4 GB of internal storage, microSD slot and a 1,750 mAh battery. The device has a 5-megapixel camera, which can record video in 720p HD resolution with a front VGA camera. The company also claims that users can play music on Xperia NFC phone through a wireless NFC-enabled Sony Bluetooth speaker.

Sony said, “Just tap the back of your Xperia M against the speaker’s NFC antenna and the music is played out loud”. The connectivity features include 3G support, FM Radio and Wi-Fi connectivity. The Xperia M has a capacitive touchscreen with an on-screen QWERTY keyboard.
