Sony has a knack for producing waterproof devices, so much in fact, the outfit recently released a set of aquatic-friendly applications. Today, the company announced release plans for a water resistant version of its Xperia M2, aptly named the M2 Aqua. Set to launch sometime this fall, this IP65/68 rated waterproof smartphone is ready to battle the elements.

Aside from being able to go for a swim, the M2 Aqua’s hardware is pretty much the same as its predecessor’s. Sony’s new handset features a 4.8-inch 540 x 960 qHD display, a 1.2GHz quad-core Snapdragon 400 processor, 1GB of RAM, a 2,330mAh battery, an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera, a 1.1-megapixel front-facing shooter and Android 4.4 KitKat.

Available in black or white, the M2 Aqua will be coming to Asia, Latin America and Europe. No word if the handset will ever find its way to the US of A, but considering Sony’s track record, we probably wouldn’t bet on it.
