A couple of minutes ago you found out that Sony unveiled the Xperia C5 Ultra, a huge 6-inch phablet. From what it seems this device didn’t arrived alone, but accompanied by the Xperia M5, a compact smartphone that brings specs found between mid and high-end levels.
Inside the M5 we get a 5-inch Full HD display, an octa-core Helio X10 (Mediatek MT6795) processor on 64-bit that is clocked at 2.0 GHz, 3 GB of RAM memory and 16 GB space of internal storage. We’ll also be getting a microSD card slot up to 200 GB.
This phone packs Android 5.0 Lollipop operating system with the Xperia UI custom interface applied on top and IP65/IP68 water and dust proof certification. Beside these specs, you must know that Xperia M5 arrives with a 13-megapixel front-facing camera that sounds great for our selfie captures. Also, we can shoot 1080p video using this sensor.
But not the front-facing camera is the main attraction, but the 21.5 megapixel rear camera that offers a f/2.2 aperture, camera that let us take pictures with a maximum ISO level of 3200, and videos with 4K Ultra HD resolution. Sony brings on this sensor a hybrid autofocus system that focuses our subjects in just 0.25 seconds.
You must know that Sony Xperia M5 offers a 2.600 mAh battery and a 7.6 mm thin case that weighs around 142.5 grams. Sony will bring both single-SIM and dual-SIM variants of this phone, but not all of them will offer 4G LTE connectivity. According to some rumors, its price tag will be around $400.
