Shortly after announcing the Xperia C4, the Xperia C5 Ultra is the bigger successor with a phablet sized 6″ Full HD display and it comes with 13MP cameras on both sides. In terms of specs, it retains the same 1.7GHz MediaTek Octa-Core processor with 2GB of RAM and it also comes with 16GB of storage. Fortunately there’s room for more with its microSD expansion slot.
Going back to the camera, the Xperia C5 Ultra takes its PRO Selfie feature up a notch with a wider 22mm view and a soft-LED flash light at the front. Despite its larger display, the Xperia C5 Ultra gets a near-borderless display which makes it more usable in a single hand. Powering the Xperia C5 Ultra is a 2,930mAh capacity battery that’s rated to last up to 2 days. It is officially priced at RM1,399 and comes with a choice of White, Black and Mint colours.
The Xperia M5 is a compact waterproof device with high-end aspirations. It gets a 5″ Full HD display and under the hood you’ll find a 2.0GHz Octa-Core MediaTek Helo X10 processor with 3GB of RAM. On-board it gets 16GB of storage that also comes with an expandable microSD slot.
The front 13MP camera is similar with the Xperia C5 Ultra but the back gets an updated 21.5MP Sony IMX230 sensor that supports Phase Detection Auto Focus. With this, you can capture moving objects in greater clarity thanks to its 0.25 seconds focus time.
To maintain its slender 7.6mm side profile, the Xperia M5 comes with a 2,600mAh capacity battery but it is also claims to push up to 2 days of battery life. The Xperia M5 is priced at RM1,599 and it comes in Black, White and Gold.
