The Sony Xperia C5 Ultra is an unannounced Android smartphone that’s expected to be officially unveiled next week, on August 3. Until then, though, we can already take a good look at the handset, thanks to numerous leaked photos revealed by Russian website [email protected]
The C5 Ultra has been photographed alongside the Xperia M5, another unannounced handset that Sony should showcase on August 3.
Sporting a 6-inch 1080p display, the Xperia C5 Ultra has very thin bezels (0.8 mm) on its left and right sides, this making it look quite attractive. The handset runs Android Lollipop, and should be powered by an octa-core MediaTek MT6752 processor clocked at 1.7 GHz. Reportedly, the new smartphone comes with 13 MP rear and front cameras, both offering LED flashes. Other features include 2 GB of RAM, 16 GB of expandable internal memory, and a 2930 mAh battery. The C5 Ultra might cost around $350.
The Xperia M5 is smaller than the C5 Ultra, as it sports a 5-inch 1080p display. The M5 kind of resembles the Xperia Z3+, and will be dust- and water-resistant (IP68-certified). Apparently powered by an octa-core MediaTek Helio X10 processor clocked at 2.0 GHz, the Xperia M5 seemingly features 3 GB of RAM, 16 GB of expandable internal memory, a 2600 mAh battery, and a 13 MP front-facing camera. The highlight feature of the M5 should be its 21 MP rear camera, which comes with Sony’s IMX230 sensor, 5x digital zoom “with no perceptible loss in quality”, fast auto focus (0.2 seconds), and 4K video recording. It looks like the Xperia M5 will be the handset capable of taking “split-second photos” that Sony recently teased. The smartphone could cost around $400.
