Sony Mobile reveals two new smartphones with the introduction of Xperia C5 Ultra and Xperia M5 to its impressive range of devices. Offering advances in camera, design, battery and performance, the products support Sony’s leadership in the smartphone market.
Xperia C5 Ultra – the all new PROselfie smartphone with two 13-megapixel cameras and an innovative near borderless 6” Full HD display. Starting with the Xperia C3, Sony Mobile has been the front runner to address the digital native’s need with our PROselfie offering. Xperia C5 Ultra incorporates an industry first twin 13-megapixel front and rear camera, which offers stunning high-resolution imagery. Whether you’re shooting incredible scenery or taking a selfie with friends, your images are always captured in crystal clear quality. Both cameras include Sony’s leading Exmor RS™ sensor, HDR for picture and video, and an easy to use preset Auto scene recognition mode that analyses and adjusts settings automatically to give the perfect results every time.
Selfies are also enhanced with the integration of Sony’s enhanced Selfie Flash that supports the front camera and lightens up more of the frame to ensure every part of your photograph’s beauty is captured. The device’s 22mm wide-angle lens also means that you can fit more in the frame. Unleash your creativity with a host of Selfie camera applications that are available to download.
Xperia C5 Ultra provides a high quality viewing experience, with its large display, complete with a super-thin bezel for a near borderless display. The large 6” Full HD display with IPS featuring Sony’s TV technology Mobile BRAVIA® Engine 2 lets you enjoy your videos and pictures in the finest detail. A one-handed operation mode is also available to help you easily use the device with options for both right-handed and left-handed users.
With an aluminium frame and three colour variations, including black, white and a glossy soft mint, Xperia C5 Ultra offers a premium design, whilst allowing you to showcase your individual style. Sleek, stylish and a comfortable fit in the hand, Xperia C5 Ultra feels as good as it looks.
Performance is assured thanks to the advanced 1.7 GHz 64 bit Octa-core processor with 2GB RAM and 4G network support for a fast user experience.
With the reliable up to two-day battery life, and up to 7 hours 47 minutes(2) of video playback, you will never have to worry about losing power during important moments. What’s more, Ultra STAMINA Mode optimises battery usage further to ensure it is used most effectively.
Xperia M5 – Sony camera brilliance packed in a premium waterproof design
Following Xperia M4 Aqua’s success in raising the bar and defining the “super mid-range” with its camera leadership, Xperia M5 has an even more impressive 21.5MP rear camera that lets you snap extraordinary moments like a pro. When you can’t get near enough to your subject, 5x Clear Image Zoom allows you to get close without losing any quality.
Sony’s camera brilliance doesn’t end there – Xperia M5 has a powerful 13MP front-facing ‘selfie cam’, which also comes with integrated autofocus and Full-HD video recording, so you can take exquisite selfies to share with friends and family.
What’s more, a host of camera applications elevate your selfies to the next level – including Face in picture, AR mask and Style portrait.
Boasting a sharp, bright and vivid 5” Full HD display, your favourite Sony entertainment will really come to life. Mobile BRAVIA® Engine 2 gives you enhanced sharpness and contrast for immersive viewing, whilst IPS ensures excellent viewing at any angle and accurate colours from edge to edge.
Xperia M5 is also waterproof and dust-tight, with a capless USB port for added convenience and easy charging. It is also protected against accidental splashes, so you can use your Xperia M5 under the rain or shine, wherever you are.
Xperia M5 integrates a large 2,600mAh battery offering up to two-days battery life, so you don’t have to worry about charging your phone every day. Meanwhile, ultra-fast smartphone connectivity is enabled with 4G, for quick downloading of audio and video content.
