Sony Xperia C5 Ultra Ups Selfie Game With Twin 13MP Cameras

By Gary Cutlack on at

Sony has confirmed the existence of the Xperia C5 Ultra, the previously rumoured smartphone with the 6-inch display and dual 13-Megapixel cameras, creating an imaging powerhouse that lets it wheel out the term PROselfie(TM).

The Xperia C5 Ultra does indeed appear to have an extremely slim bezel as previously postulated, with Sony saying it's "wafer-thin" (technical term) and explaining that the C5 Ultra's case is aluminium -- and the phone's backside is slightly curved. The phone's 6-inch display outputs at 1920x1080 resolution, plus it's powered by an unnamed 1.7 GHz Octa-core processor with a 2930mAh battery to keep it all working.

A key boast is the inclusion of a "Soft LED Selfie Flash" for your front-facing pictures, making it one of the first smartphones to whack a flash on the front of the phone, for better pictures when you, moving in the circles you do, bump into a celebrity in bar. Here it is, pictured unawares from behind:

Sony has also revealed the Xperia M5 today, a waterproof option with a 21.5MP rear camera, 64-bit MediaTek Helio X10 chipset, 5-inch 1080p display and IP65/IP68 ratings for keeping dust and water out. Fluff won't stand a chance. Here's that one:

That concludes todays news about new Sony phones. See you again tomorrow. [Sony]
