Sony Introduces Two New Mid-Range Smartphones For Those Serious About Selfies


Sony announced yesterday two new mid-range smartphones. What makes these smartphones special is the attention paid to their cameras.

If you didn’t already know, Sony is one of the leading manufacturers of smartphone cameras. They provide the cameras that Apple uses in the iPhone 6 and that Samsung does in the Galaxy S6. In fact, Sony’s camera business is in large part responsible for balancing out their terrible smartphone business, which lost the company $184 million dollars last quarter alone!

But if you’re in the market for a smartphone and don’t have the budget for the latest iPhone or Galaxy, yet taking great pictures is a must, then consider one of these two new options from Sony.


Sony Xperia C5 Ultra

  • 13-megapixel camera in the front, and the same 13-megapixel camera in the back give you the same definition regardless of which you’re using.
  • 22 mm lens means you can fit more into each picture.
  • Flash on the front camera. Why? Just in case you’re snapping selfies in the dark, apparently.
  • 6-inch display, a 1.7 GHz 64 bit octa-core processor, and 2GB of RAM.
  • Comes in black and white.
  • Costs around $350.
  • Ships in August.

Sony Xperia M5

  • 13-megapixel front camera, and even better 21.5 megapixel back camera.
  • Shoots 4K videos.
  • 5-inch display, 64-bit 2.0GHz octa-core processor, 3GB of RAM, and a 2,600mAh battery.
  • Comes in black and white.
  • Costs around $400.
  • Also ships in August.
