PROselfie Smartphone with Two 13 MegaPixel Cameras and a Near-Borderless 6-inch Full HD Display

Starting with the Xperia C3, Sony Mobile has been the front runner in addressing consumers’ need for a great selfie-phone. Xperia C5 Ultra incorporates an industry first twin 13 MegaPixel front and rear camera, which offer stunning high-resolution imagery. Whether you’re shooting incredible scenery or taking a selfie with friends, your images are always captured in crystal clear quality. Both cameras include Sony’s leading Exmor RS sensor boosting their low light performance, HDR for picture and video, and an easy to use preset Auto scene recognition mode that analyses and adjusts settings automatically to give the perfect results every time.

According to the company, selfies are also enhanced with the integration of Sony’s new Selfie Flash that supports the front camera and lightens up more of the frame to ensure every part of your photograph’s beauty is captured. C5 Ultra’s 22mm wide-angle lens also means that you can fit more into a frame, whether it is you with your group of friends or the fantastic background. Plus, you can unleash your creativity with a host of selfie camera applications that are available to download.

Sony Xperia C5 Ultra provides a high-quality viewing experience (as expected from an Xperia release), with its large display, complete with a super-thin bezel for a near-borderless display.

The large 6-inch Full HD IPS panel - putting the handset well-within the phablet category - features Sony’s legendary TV display technology Mobile BRAVIA Engine 2 that lets you enjoy your videos and pictures in the finest detail. Sony also added a one-handed operation mode to help you easily use the device with just - well - one hand and with options for both right-handed and left-handed users
