Even though Sony has been rather sluggish at product announcements this year, the company has managed to launch a few flagships that we’ve already reviewed. That said, we recently came across some documents that reveal a Sony Xperia C5 Ultra in the works, and super-slim bezels were just part of the news. If you thought it was too hard to believe for Sony to take this approach on a future smartphone, we’ve now got photos to prove it.
There’s a very interesting story in Brazil over some new leaks of the Sony Xperia C5 Ultra. It turns out that the device was in its certification process with Brazil’s Anatel, which would be the US FCC equivalent, when it got stolen. As a result, the Brazilian police did some amazing work in retrieving the device when it was advertised on Facebook for an upcoming auction. Once the device was recovered, you’d think that the Brazilian police would simply return it to Anatel and Sony in a silent manner, but no, we were lucky enough to get a public photo of device first. Sadly we don’t get any specifics on internals, but at least we do get confirmation that the device exists, and its bezels don’t. What we currently know is that it includes a 5.5-inch 1080p display, a MediaTek MT6752 octa-core chip, 2GB RAM, and a pair of 13MP cameras with LED flash in the front and back.
We’ll keep you posted as more CSI work continues.
