Sony unveiled "a new way to capture split-second photos" earlier today, as promised. In fact, they announced two handsets focused on shooting photos, namely the Xperia C5 Ultra phablet and the Xperia M5 smartphone.
Advertised by the official press release as "best in class super mid-range smartphones," these new Sony Xperia devices "highlight Sony’s advances in camera technology" by offering a 21.5 MP main camera with hybrid AF, 5X clear image zoom and 4K video (C5 Ultra) and the industry's first twin 13 MP front and rear camera (M5).
Sony Xperia M5 is a waterproof and dust-tight 5-inch smartphone with extended autonomy, powered by a 64-bit MediaTek Helio X10 processor, 3 GB RAM, 16 GB internal storage and microSD support.
The 6-inch Xperia C5 Ultra uses a MediaTek processor as well, but the slightly older MTK6752. Its remaining specs include 2 GB RAM, 16 GB internal storage, as well as microSD support.
Both have Full HD resolution and come loaded with Android 5.0 Lollipop. The new Sony Xperia handsets will be available in single and dual-SIM variants "in selected countries across emerging markets from mid August."
