An 8 MP camera for amazing picture quality
With the Xperia M2 we have created a Quad-core phone with a camera that captures pictures of exceptional quality. The 8-megapixel camera features an Exmor RS™ for mobile image sensor and HDR for both pictures and videos.
Auto scene recognition. For perfect photos.
From illuminated night views to close-up macro photos, Auto scene recognition recognises up to 36 scene types and adjusts the settings automatically to help you get the best photos anywhere, at any time. As the default camera mode, Auto scene recognition turns HDR on and off depending on your scene. HDR mode takes multiple shots with varied exposures and then merges them together to make your photos look natural – even in backlit conditions.
HDR for photos and video – natural colours in any light
HDR (High Dynamic Range) is an imaging technology that gives you clear photos against strong backlight. With HDR, your Android smartphone captures the same image at different exposure levels and layers them to create one optimised photo. And thanks to HDR for video, you can film in high contrast situations. You get great footage, even if your subject stands in front of a window or the setting sun.
Exmor RS™ for mobile – stunning shots in any light
The camera is built with the same modules as leading Sony cameras. Exmor RS™ for mobile is an evolution of our Sony image sensor technology, with a next-generation BSI light sensor. By adopting the technology of luminance and colour noise reduction, we’ve created a camera that snaps highly detailed shots with low noise – even in challenging lighting conditions. You can now also reproduce objects in more vivid colours and capture night images and faces with stunning clarity.
Big, bright and built on Sony TV technology
The Xperia M2‘s display beautifully illustrates Sony’s dedication to quality craftsmanship. It comes with a big, bright 4.8” qHD display built with the same expertise that brought you Sony’s best TV technologies.
