Sony has shown a "return to form" in its devices, business analysts told CNBC, after the Japanese electronics giant unveiled a slim tablet and mid-range smartphone on Monday.
A 299 euro ($339) smartphone known as the Xperia M4 Aqua was shown off at Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Barcelona, as Sony looks to target the mid-range market which has seen solid growth as customers look for high-end devices at low prices.
The M4 Aqua looks similar to Sony's flagship and more expensive Xperia Z3 which was unveiled last year, and has many of the same features, including being waterproof. It also has a 13 megapixel rear camera and 5 megapixel front camera.
Sony also revealed the 6.1 millimeter thin Xperia Z4 tablet with a 10.1 inch screen, touting the device as ideal for both business use and entertainment.
