Shortly after Sony Malaysia had announced its Xperia C4 and M4 Aqua, we have two new models heading our way. The 6″ Sony Xperia C5 Ultra and its new compact Xperia M5 will be available for pre-orders in Malaysia through 11street.
Both models are dual-SIM ready and 11street will be accepting orders starting from this Wednesday, 19th August until 31st August 2015. In terms of price, surprisingly they are quite competitively priced at RM1,399 for the Xperia C5 Ultra Dual and RM1,599 for the Xperia M5. The 11street exclusive pre-orders will start shipping in early September.
To recap, the Xperia C5 Ultra is not only their new phablet but it’s also their new contender in the selfie centric space. Not only it gets a huge 6″ Full HD display, it also features 13MP cameras for both front and back. To get the best out of your selfie shots, the front camera has a wider 22mm view and it gets a soft LED Selfie Flash for better illumination. With an ultra-thin bezel, the Xperia C5 Ultra looks almost bezel-less and the shorter width makes it easy to handle with a single hand.
The internals however is similar to the current Xperia C4, with a 1.7GHz MediaTek Octa-Core Processor that’s mated with 2GB of RAM, along with 16GB of storage that’s expandable with microSD. With a 2,930mAh non-removable battery, it is rated to last up to 2 days and overall it weighs 187 grams. At RM1,399, the Xperia C5 Ultra merely RM100 more than the Xperia C4, and you get a huge upgrade in both screen and optics. You can read more in our Xperia C5 Ultra announcement post.
The Xperia M5 is looking like a compact flagship that’s a worthy successor of the Xperia Z3 Compact. The exterior design looks like an Xperia Z3 series and it even comes with IP68 water resistance. The Xperia M5 has a 5″ Full HD display and under the hood you’ll find MediaTek’s high-end 2.0GHz Helio X10 octa-core processor that’s mated to 3GB of RAM. It also gets 16GB of storage and a microSD slot that accepts up to 200GB in capacity.
In the camera department, things get a little interesting. While the Xperia Z3 and Xperia Z3+ still carries the same old 20.7MP shooter, the M5 features a newer 21.5MP IMX230 sensor that’s features Phase Detection Auto Focus. The result is clearer shots of moving objects thanks to its 0.2 seconds focus time. For the narcissists, they won’t be disappointed either as the front gets a 13MP camera just like the Xperia C5 Ultra. With a smaller 2,600mAh capacity battery, the Xperia M5 still boasts up to 2 days of battery life. Overall it weighs 143 grams and has a thickness of 7.6mm.
