Here is an official video from Sony showing off the features of the Xperia M2:
The Xperia M2 will be available in three colors, Black, White and Purple.
Interestingly, the Sony Press Renders were named Xperia E3, perhaps they wanted to call it that, but maybe they didn’t want to run into copyright issues, as the Gionee Elife E3 carries the same name. Maybe that is why they decided to name it the Xperia M2.
There is even a line in the Press Release which reads,
Xperia E3 provides speed and durability for users on-the-go.
