Sony Mobile hasÃ‚Â today revealed two new smartphones with the introduction of Xperia C5 Ultra and Xperia M5 to its range of devices. Both devices offer advances in camera, design, battery and performance.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“We are pleased to present two new products that highlight SonyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s advances in camera technology,Ã¢â‚¬Â said Tony McNulty, Vice-President, Value Category Business Management at Sony Mobile Communications.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“We understand that camera capabilities are important to smartphone users, so we ensured that SonyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s existing camera brilliance was once again surpassed in the new Xperia C5 Ultra and Xperia M5 without compromising on other features across design and performance.Ã¢â‚¬Â
Xperia C5 Ultra Ã¢â‚¬â€œ the all new PROselfie smartphone with two 13-megapixel cameras and an innovative near borderless 6Ã¢â‚¬Â Full HD display
Xperia C5 Ultra incorporates an industry first twin 13-megapixel front and rear camera, which offers stunning high-resolution imagery. Whether youÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re shooting incredible scenery or taking a selfie with friends, your images are always captured in crystal clear quality. Both cameras include SonyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s leading Exmor RSÃ¢â€žÂ¢ 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 SonyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s enhanced Selfie Flash that supports the front camera and lightens up more of the frame to ensure every part of your photographÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s beauty is captured. The deviceÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s 22mm wide-angle lens also means that you can fit more in the frame.
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 6Ã¢â‚¬Â Full HD display with IPS featuring SonyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s TV technology Mobile BRAVIAÃ‚Â® 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 minutesÃ‚Â of video playback, you will never have to worry about losing power during important moments. WhatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s more, Ultra STAMINA Mode optimises battery usage further to ensure it is used most effectively.
Xperia M5 Ã¢â‚¬â€œ Sony camera brilliance packed in a premium waterproof design
Xperia M5 has an even more impressive 21.5MP rear camera that lets you snap extraordinary moments like a pro. When you canÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t get near enough to your subject, 5x Clear Image Zoom allows you to get close without losing any quality.
With the power to capture videos in 4K, Xperia M5 offers the quality and performance of a compact digital camera. The result is sharp, clear and bright footage every time.
SonyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s camera brilliance doesnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t end there Ã¢â‚¬â€œ Xperia M5 has a powerful 13MP front-facing Ã¢â‚¬Ëœselfie camÃ¢â‚¬â„¢, which also comes with integrated autofocus and Full-HD video recording, so you can take exquisite selfies to share with friends and family.
WhatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s more, a host of camera applications elevate your selfies to the next level Ã¢â‚¬â€œ including Face in picture, AR mask and Style portrait.
Boasting a sharp, bright and vivid 5Ã¢â‚¬Â Full HD display, your favourite Sony entertainment will really come to life. Mobile BRAVIAÃ‚Â® 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.
Unique like our flagship devices, Xperia M5 is also waterproof and dust-tight, with a capless USB port for added convenience and easy charging. With a waterproof smartphone, you donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t need to worry if your device gets dirty, just rinse it off under the tap. It is also protected against accidental splashes, so you can use your Xperia M5 under the rain or shine, wherever you are.
For beauty and perfection in every direction, Xperia M5 features SonyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s distinctive design with the OmniBalance style in a sleek premium glass finish on both sides. It is also designed for durability with stainless steel corners to protect against bumps.
Xperia M5 integrates a large 2,600mAh battery offering up to two-days battery life, so you donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t have to worry about charging your phone every day. An impressive 64-bit 2.0 GHz Octa-core processor powered by MediaTek Helio X10 with 3GB RAM provides amazing performance and speed to optimise your battery life. Meanwhile, ultra-fast smartphone connectivity is enabled with 4G, for quick downloading of audio and video content.
Both Xperia C5 Ultra and Xperia M5 also have an expandable memory with up to 200GB uSD card and the devices are available in both Single and Dual SIM variants. Xperia C5 Ultra and Xperia M5 will be available in selected countries across emerging markets from mid August.
