New leak images of slim-bezel Sony Xperia C5 Ultra

We have some new images of a purported Android-powered Xperia C5 Ultra to look at, courtesy of Mail.ru. The original post by Mail.ru was located in the /reviews/ subsection of their site and timestamped for August 3rd, and was taken down shortly after we began reviewing it. It’s possible the posting was under embargo until Sony Xperia’s official announcement.

Since we did manage to see the post before it was pulled, though, we get to look at a couple purported up close images of the devices, including the Xperia C5 Ultra. Keep reading for our best attempt at a plain English translation — thanks to the rough Google translate version — of what the article says about the phones…

The (purportedly 6-inch) C5 Ultra would be a successor to the 5.5-inch Xperia C4, known for being pro-selfies with both a front-facing 28mm wide-angle camera — featuring a Sony Exmor R mobile sensor — and a front-facing flash. The big difference between the C4 and the C5 Ultra seems to be in its slim bezel and upgraded front-facing shooter. The C5 Ultra, if this post is to be believed, has an ultra-thin 0.8mm thick bezel (hence the “ultra” appended at the end) versus 2.2mm with the C4, and sports a 13MP wide-angle front-facing camera (versus 5MP wide-angle on the C4). The lack of bezel reserves most of the front panel for the screen.

Other reported specifications for the C5 Ultra include an 8-core MediaTek processor with a clock-speed of 1.7 GHz, 2 GB RAM, 16 GB of onboard storage, dual-sim card support, and microSD card support up to 128 GB. The battery capacity is 2930 mAh, up from 2600 mAh in the C4, and is slated to last up to 2 days on a single charge using Sony’s STAMINA power management mode. The front is covered in glass, of course, while the sides are aluminum and the back is glossy plastic.

Mail.ru expects the C5 Ultra to be priced around $350 USD, although exchange rates and currency fluctuations can have an impact on that. Fortunately with the aforementioned Sony Xperia event happening this coming Monday, we don’t have to wait very long to see how much of this is accurate.
