At the Mobile World Congress earlier this year, Sony had announced the Xperia M2 alongside the flagship Xperia Z2. Today, the Japanese company has launched the mid-range device in India for Rs 21,990. It will be available later this week on April 25.

As far as specifications are concerned, the Xperia M2 sports a 4.8-inch qHD (960×540 pixels) display and is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 quad-core processor clocked at 1.2GHz and paired with Adreno 305 GPU and 1GB of RAM. Also included, is 8GB of internal storage that can be expanded to up to 32GB using a microSD card.

Other features include an 8-megapixel rear camera, VGA front-facing camera, and a 2,300mAh battery that the company claims is good enough for 14 hours of talktime and 693 hours on standby mode. Connectivity options include dual-SIM card slots, 3G support, Wi-Fi, NFC and Bluetooth and on the software front, it runs on Android 4.3 Jelly Bean.

At this price point, the Xperia M2 will be up against the likes of the Samsung Galaxy S III, Lenovo S820, and the Huawei Ascend P6. The Galaxy S III may be an old device, but it still has the specs to compete with the Xperia M2. It has a better display (720p), better processor clock speed (1.4GHz), and more internal storage (16GB).

The Lenovo S820 too boasts a better resolution display (720p), better resolution cameras (12-megapixel/2-megapixel), but a slightly smaller battery (2,000mAh). Things are the same with the Ascend P6 too — better resolution display (720p), better RAM (2GB), better resolution front facing camera (5-megapixel), albeit a smaller battery (2,000mAh).
