Sony announces the Xperia C5 Ultra and the Xperia M5

Tuesday, August 04, 2015

As rumored and expected, Sony announced two new members to the Xperia family - the Xperia C5 Ultra and the Xperia M5, pretty nice additions to its lineup.

Xperia C5 Ultra:


The phone's front is occupied by a large, 6-inch IPS LCD display with a resolution of 1080 by 1920 pixels.

On the hardware side of things, we find a 64-bit, octa-core MediaTek SoC inside the Sony Xperia C5 Ultra. The MTK6752 is the chip in use, with a 1.7GHz maximum clock speed, an ARM Mali760 MP2 GPU maxing out at 700 MHz. 2 GB of RAM and 16GB of on-board storage have also been thrown in, along with a microSD card slot that accepts cards of up to 200GB. 



But one of the most exciting features of the Sony Xperia C5 Ultra are its cameras. We said "cameras" because both the front and the rear one seem to pack plenty of potential. On the front of the C5 Ultra resides a 13MP autofocus Exmor RS camera with a 22 mm focal length and an 88 degree field of view. In plain words, you'll be able to effortlessly fit a whole bunch of people into the frame and capture a photo in great clarity. On top of that, you get a soft LED flash at the front to illuminate those darker selfies.  

As for the Xperia C5 Ultra's main camera, it has the same 13MP of resolution, Exmor RS sensor, and a soft LED flash. The focal length and viewing angle, however, are slightly different, at 25 mm and 80 degrees respectively. Neither of the two cameras feature optical image stabilization. They both rely on software to keep the frame steady.  


Xperia M5:

The M5, in particular, is touted as the "super mid-range" device and judging by its specs it could be a pretty well-bodied trooper, all things considered.
The phone, which can be viewed as a successor to the Xperia M4 Aqua, comes with a 5-inch 1080p display and is powered by a 64-bit MediaTek MT6795 chipset, a 2.0GHz octa-core silicon that is a member of MediaTek's top-end Helio X10 line. 


There's also 3GB of RAM on the Xperia M5, 16GB of native storage and a microSD card slot, and a 2,600mAh battery at the back to keep lights on. Android 5.0 Lollipop with Sony's Xperia UI atop are responsible for the software part of the device. Both single-SIM and dual-SIM variants of the Xperia M5 will be available.

Undoubtedly, the highlight of the phone is its camera, a 21.5MP rear snapper that has an f/2.2 aperture and has a maximum light sensitivity of up to ISO 3200. The rear camera comes with a fast hybrid autofocus that is reportedly able to do its mojo in merely 250 milliseconds (that's pretty fast!). We also have 4K video capture on board. In the meantime, the front-facing snapper is also a pretty compelling one: Sony put a 13MP selfie shooter up front, which comes with autofocus and allows you to record 1080p videos on the go. 


The Xperia M5 is dust- and water-proof (IP65/IP68), but what's interesting is that its USB port is a capгless one - you won't need to close or open the protective flap when you need access to the port, which is a pretty convenient feature. 



We have Android 5.0 Lollipop running on both phones.
