Sony Xperia C5 Ultra Dual: Quality Cameras, Hopefully Half the Premium Price
Sony Xperia C5 Ultra Dual is one of the few mid-range Smartphones that share the same camera MP rating for both the primary and secondary camera. 13MP to be exact. This model serves as the unit that will challenge Asus Selfie and Oppo N1 in the field of casual Smartphone photography.
Sony Xperia C5 Ultra Dual, the way we see it, is a means to keep the loyal Xperia users from eventually buying other brands. At the same time, the C5 Ultra Dual has the goal of being a top choice for new buyers and lead even the most loyal of buyers to consider changing the brand of their devices.
The Xperia Series is always recognized for reliability. Being a subsidiary of Sony, the series enjoyed some of the best screen quality and sound output, even without the enhancing accessories. Speaking of screens, XperiaC5 Ultra Dual will not be using the usual Corning glass 3 or 4 protection. It will be using the Sony-developed Sony Mobile BRAVIA Engine 2. It promises a better scratch-resistant surface. It has an aluminum frame with almost no bezels. It also has a slightly curved back.

A unit with equal MP ratings would need a bigger viewfinder for a screen. The C5 Ultra Dual is a phablet with screen display measuring at 6 inches. It can interpret 16 million color variations, tightly detailed in 367 pixel per inch density. Both the camera shutters have face recognition and smile recognition function. The screen size demanded a bigger battery and 2930 may just be enough to get you to the day.
Sony’s Hongkong headquarters has made the unit available for pre-order since August 2 until the 11th. On Sony’s press release after the end of pre-order sales, they were happy to increase the production of this model, as all units intended to be sold on the Hongkong market is already sold-out from pre-orders. Expect a few days before the device reaches the majority of Southeast Asia. After Hongkong, the second priority market for this unit is India. They will be launching the device in India by tomorrow or August 15, which is incidentally the celebration of India’s independence day.
The C5 Ultra has two variants, whose difference is limited to the number of supported SIM cards. The Dual, as the name implies can support up to two SIMs. Other than that, both units run on a Mediatek MT6752 chipset. They will feature an Octa-core 1.7 GHz Cortex-A53 CPU and a Mali-T760MP2 for graphics. Both variations will come with 2GB RAM and 16GB of built-in storage, which can be expanded to have 200GB more.
This has a pre-order price of HK $ 3,298 or about Php 19,500. Once it reaches the Filipino market, expect price adjustments, projected somewhere below the Php 25,000.00 area.
