Xperia M5 and C5 Ultra handsets won’t be officially
unveiled until next week, but that’s not stopping us from getting an early look
at the unannounced devices. Earlier today Russian tech site Hi-Tech.Mail.ru leaked both devices in full, giving us a
good look at Sony’s upcoming smartphones.
Sony Xperia C5
The Xperia C5
Ultra is arguably the more interesting of the two. It has a big 6.0-inch
Full HD display that extends all the way to the left and right sides of
the chassis, giving it an almost bezel-free aesthetic. According to the leak,
the bezels on the left and right sides measure only .8mm in length, which is very thin.
The C5 Ultra also sports a 13MP rear and front-facing camera, complete with
a front-facing flash. In addition, it’s powered by an octa-core 1.7GHz
MediaTek MT6752 processor, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of on-board storage, microSD
expansion, as well as a 2930mAh battery. According to recent leaks, the
device could launch for somewhere around $350.
Sony Xperia M5
The Xperia M5 on the other hand looks to feature a similar
design aesthetic to that of the Z3or Z3+,
which unfortunately blends in with most other Sony devices on the market. It
comes with a 5.0-inch Full HD IPS LCD display, an octa-core MediaTek Helio X10
processor, 3GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage and microSD expansion.
This device also comes with a 13MP camera on the front and
back and has IP65/IP68 certification. It will likely launch for somewhere
around $400, and will be available in Black, Silver and Gold color options.
