Spark has announced it has been chosen to bring Sony’s new Xperia M4 Aqua exclusively to customers. 

Jason Paris, general manager for Spark Home, Mobile, and Business, welcomed the launch of the M4 Aqua, saying it made a great addition to the stable of Sony devices exclusively available through Spark.

“We’re excited to have the Sony Xperia M4 Aqua in our range and on our network as an operator exclusive,” Paris says. “It offers tremendous value with a top-of-the-line feature set at an unbeatable price"

The Xperia M4 Aqua targets the mid-range market with a more ‘accessible’ price point.

“Offering the most popular standout features made famous by our Xperia Z Series; camera capability, up to two-day battery life and waterproofing, Xperia M4 Aqua brings a proposition and price, products in this section of the market simply cannot match,” Featherstone claims.

“People will love the high definition front and back cameras, its ability to stand up to the rigours of everyday use, and the incredible battery life,” Paris adds. “It will be right at home on Spark’s fast 4G network, available in more places than ever before.”
