Sony had posted a teaser on Twitter about new Xperia device announcement on August 3. However, two Sony smartphones Xperia C5 Ultra and Xperia M5 have already leaked ahead of the official announcement via Russian website hi-tech.mail.ru that has published several images as well as preview of the said two handsets.
Although the article on the Russian website has since been removed, the images and specs of Xperia C5 Ultra and Xperia M5 are already circulating over the net. Both the smartphones have been photographed alongside each other. The details about the Sony Xperia C5 Ultra which was known earlier as Sony Lavender, have leaked earlier but the Xperia M5 has not been heard of before.
Let’s have a look at the specs of both the phones:
Xperia C5 Ultra
The Xperia C5 Ultra is the bigger of the two and is quite imposing with its 6-inch display but attractive all the same. The 6-inch display has the resolution of 1080p and the handset has very thin 0.8mm bezels. Because of such thin bezels, it doesn’t appear much bigger than the iPhone 6 Plus which has a 5.5-inch screen.
Other specs include 1.7 GHz octa-core MediaTek MT6752 processor, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage expandable with microSD card, 13MP cameras with LED flash at both rear and front sides and a 2930 mAh battery. The battery capacity seems a bit on the lower side looking to its display size.
The C5 Ultra will have dual-SIM support and NFC and will run Android Lollipop. It is expected to be priced at about 21k to 22k Rubles which comes to around 340 to 360 Dollars.
The Xperia M5 is the smaller of the two but costlier, sporting a 5-inch 1080p IPS display. It looks like a low-cost sibling of the Xperia Z3+. It has the 2GHZ octa-core MediaTek Helio X10 processor, 3GB of RAM, 16GB of internal memory expandable with microSD card and a 2600mAh battery.
The handset will have a 21MP rear camera with f/2.2aperture, fast auto focus, 5x digital zoom and 4K video recording. The front-facing camera would be 13MP. The Xperia M5 will probably have Sony’s new Exmor RS IMX230 sensor on board and be the device that can take “split-second photos” which Sony teased recently.
It will have a dual-SIM variant and will be IP68 certified for dust and water resistance. The cost of Xperia M5 would be about 24k to 25k Rubles which comes to around 390 to 405 Dollars.
Both the new smartphones Xperia C5 Ultra and Xperia M5 will come in two color variants – White and Black.
