Sony Mobile South Africa announced local launch windows for a number of its new devices on 5 March 2015.
Unveiled at Mobile World Congress earlier this week, the Sony Xperia E4g, E4, Z4 Tablet, and M4 Aqua will all be in South Africa before the end of June 2015.
Giving more detail, Andrew Fraser, the channel marketing manager at Sony Mobile in South Africa, said the Xperia E4g will launch during May 2015.
The Sony Xperia E4, Z4 tablet, and M4 Aqua will all be available by the end of May, or during June 2015, Fraser added.
In terms of pricing, Fraser said the M4 Aqua would be in a similar price band to its predecessor, the Sony M2 Aqua.
Fraser said they were not legally allowed to announce pricing for the devices, and that their retail partners don’t like it when they talk about suggested pricing.
Local pricing would be set by the operators and retailers.
