Sony’s New Xperia C5 Ultra and M5 Smartphones Target Selfie-maniacs
Have you ever heard of a phone which has a good rear camera and an equally good front facing camera? No? Me neither. Sony is now targeting selfie-maniacs with a phone which is a selfie-taker prior to being a smartphone.
Xperia C5 Ultra boosts a 13-megapixel front facing and rear camera and is meant for more moderately paying customers. It comes with a 1.7 GHz Octa core processor and 2GB of RAM.
However, Xperia M5 is kind of a high-end device packing a 2.0 GHz Octa core and 3 GB RAM with a front camera of 13MP and a rear camera of 21.5-megapixels.
According to an interview with CNET, vice president for value category business management at Sony, Tony McNulty said:
We are pleased to present two new products that highlight Sony’s advances in camera technology. We understand that camera capabilities are important to smartphone users, so we ensured that Sony’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.
Like most of Sony devices, both these phones are dust and water resistant. M5 has a premium glass finish at the sides and comes with stainless steel at the corners to protect the glass if your phone falls out of your hand.
Xperia C5 Ultra can be bought in three different colors black, white and a “glossy soft mint”.
Sony has dubbed these phones as Selfie-pro and they will be on sale in Mid-August. If you are a kind of a guy who takes selfies every now and then, congratulations. This phone is made for you.
