Sony has announced two new mid-range devices called the Xperia C5 Ultra and M5, both of which focus on camera more than anything. And they’re definitely interesting devices, both featuring 13MP front facing cameras for the ultimate selfies. If your selfie game is strong enough, you might want to buy one of these.
The Xperia C5 Ultra features dual 13MP cameras, one on the front and one on the back. This means your selfies will be as fresh as your landscape photos. The front facing camera even has a selfie flash. It also features a 6-inch 1080p IPS display, a 1.7GHz octa-core processor, 2GB of RAM, a 2.930 mAh battery, and 4G connectivity. It’s a pretty decent phone. It will also have a microSD slot and and the option for dual SIM.
The Xperia M5 one ups the C5 Ultra by including a 21.5MP rear camera in addition to the 13MP front facing camera. That rear camera has what Sony calls “5x Clear Image Zoom,” which allegedly offers zoom without loss in quality. It features a 5-inch full HD IPS display, a 2GHz octa-core MediaTek Helio X10 processor, 3GB of RAM, and a 2,600 mAh battery. And as the C5 Ultra, it will also come in single SIM and dual SIM variations, both with a microSD slot.
The two devices will be launching mid-August in select markets, though we don’t know if the US will be getting them. What are your thoughts on the selfie focus of these devices? Leave a comment!
