Sony announced today that its entry-level Xperia M2 will be hitting Canadian shelves this month and heading straight for Rogers and Fido. As for specs, the M2 is an solid upgrade from its successor the Xperia M and sports a 4.8-inch 960×540 (qHD) pixel display, a 1.2 GHz quad-core processor, 8GB of internal storage, an 8MP rear camera, a 2,300mAh battery, LTE connectivity and Android 4.3 Jelly Bean.

There is no word on a specific launch date or price point, but one would expect it to be competitively priced with the Moto G around $200 no-term.

Check out our hands-on of the M2.

Update: For those interested in scoring the Xperia M2, we’ve received an internal doc that shows the pricing for Rogers to be $300 on a month-to-month/no-term, or $0 on a 2-year contract. This will be available in the coming days. Fido pricing will be similar.

    damn this phone is nice…why does it have to be a mid entry phone..too bad the z series arent all white like this….just my preference

    • Susan

      It’s a mid entry phone to make the price cheaper. If Sony said it’s a high end phone, then the price won’t be around $200 or so. But I know what you mean, the specs states otherwise. Either way, it’s an excellent phone for whatever low budget price it’s set at.

      Its 540p display with 1gb ram.
      Sony’s high end devices bare 2gb+ on ram powerful quadcore processor snapdragon 800+

    What about wind?

  • Bri Bru

    Only if the screen resolution was higher…

  • JT

    $200 would be a great deal because Sony’s do have good build quality on their entire line. It opens them up to people who would otherwise buy the Galaxy Ace II devices.

  • Pawv

    Geez.. 300 dollars……

  • AReid

    Should be no more than $200.

  • John W

    Any phone over $200 should be include at least 16GB……Sony is going downhill again.
    If they keep selling phone at those prices for those specs….they will disappear from mobile business soon.
