Sony hits the market with the reveal of its new Xperia C5 Ultra and M5 models. In case you feel that Samsung did not rise up to your expectations and Apple is just not what you’re looking for, then you might consider giving Sony a try.
Sony’s technique is to use their high-end cameras to get the spotlight. And for good reasons: a 13-megapixel camera on the front and rear of the Xperia C5 Ultra is not a joke. The M5 is not your regular toy either. This baby is nothing less than a five-inch display waterproof smartphone that comes along with a 13-megapixel front camera and a 21.5-megapixel front snapper.
It’s pretty safe to assume that Sony wants you to take the picture that you want with the highest quality you can find. The Xperia C5 Ultra also includes an HD display at 1920×1080 pixels to make things look even better. The model will be available in white, black and mint.
Spec-wise we’re talking about a 1.7GHz MediaTek chip, 2 GB of RAM, 16 GB of storage, a 2930 mAh battery and the operating system is going to be none other than the Android 5.0 Lollipop.
The M5 differs from the C5 when it comes to RAM (upped from 2 GB to 3 GB) and the larger 2600 mAh battery. And to top it off, the M5 has a 2 GHz 64-bit MediaTek Helio x10 octacore and this model will be available in white, black and gold.
But it cannot be flawless right? The main disadvantage of these devices is their storage. You are practically expecting the 16 GB, but the truth is that only 10 are available due to operating system limitations. The only backup plan Sony has for this negative feature is the purchase of a 200 GB USD card.
While Sony have not yet revealed details about pricing, we should keep in mind that they are trying to cope with the $188 million loss in the first quarter. Nonetheless, the phones are looking quite impressive, keeping the stylish approach that Sony have been always using. Only time can tell if they will be able to turn the tide in their favor.
