Sony Unveils Two New Mid-Range Devices, The Xperia C5 Ultra & Xperia M5

Today Sony has unveiled two brand new mid-range smartphones. The Xperia M5 and the Xperia C5 Ultra. Both place the focus in two different areas, but both appear to be great options for the mid-range market.

Kicking off with the Xperia C5 Ultra, we are looking at a big phone. I mean really big. The C5 Ultra packs a 6-inch display with razor thin bezels. The specs (listed below in detail) aren’t very impressive, but they’ll undoubtedly get the job done. The real selling points of this phone however will be the large screen and the cameras, specifically the front facing 13MP selfie camera. The battery is also worthy of noting as Sony claims it will bring two days of power “easily”.

Sony also unveiled the Xperia M5 which they call a “super mid-range” smartphone. While the specs on this device aren’t too much more impressive, they are a bit better. The true selling point of this device however is the camera. The new 21.5 MP rear camera has a new hybrid autofocus system which can bring down focusing time to just a quarter of a second. The camera also has an f/2.2 lens with up to ISO 3200. Sony also claims 2 days of battery life out of the 2,600 mAh battery in this device. The M5 is also water resistant unlike the C5 Ultra.

Obviously both of these phones carry over Sony’s classic design language. Both will be available in emerging markets in the next few weeks, but nothing has been said yet regarding availability anywhere in North America. Do either of these phones appeal to you?
