True to its recent declaration that it won’t be bowing out of the smartphone business anytime soon, Sony will soon roll out two new devices: The Xperia C5 Ultra, and the Xperia M5.

Sony is maintaining the facet it’s been known for, for decades: Its capacity to take crisp, clear, professional-grade photos. These two new models will not only be able to take pro-level shots from their main cameras, their selfie cameras also promise to take high-res pictures.

While high-definition photography serves to emphasize one’s facial imperfections, high-definition selfies may still have a market for those who are obsessed with them. The allure of taking pictures as sharp as celebrities’ Instagram photos with filters to hide away the imperfections is still a very real draw.

Both Sony mobile models are beefed up with waterproofing, as well as dust protection. For those who want this feature on their devices, these Sony models are great options.

Specs for the Sony Xperia C5 Ultra:

Processor/Chipset: 1.7 GHz octa-core A53 Cortex, Mediatek MT6752

RAM: 2 GB RAM

GPU: Mali-T760MP2

Internal Storage: 16 GB

OS: Lollipop v5.0

Connectivity: GSM, HSPA, LTE

Display: 6.0 inches with a resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels, ~367 ppi pixel density, scratch-resistant

Cameras: Main Camera: 13 MP with an output of 4128 x 3096 pixels, includes autofocus, LED flash; Secondary/Front Camera: 13 MP, autofocus, LED flash

Battery: 2930 mAh Li-Ion battery, non-removable

Specs for the Sony Xperia M5:

Processor/Chipset: 2.0 GHz octa-core A53 Cortex, Mediatek MT6795

RAM: 3 GB

GPU: PowerVR G6200

Internal Storage: 16 GB

OS: Lollipop v5.0

Connectivity: GSM, HSPA, LTE

Display: 5.0 inches with a resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels, ~441 ppi pixel density, protected with scratch-resistant glass

Cameras: Main Camera: 21.5 MP, with an output of 5248 x 3936 pixels, includes autofocus, LED flash; Secondary/Front Camera: 13 MP, autofocus

Battery: 2600 mAh Li-Ion battery, non-removable

Note that while the Sony Xperia M5 is definitely more powerful with higher specs for the CPU and the RAM, with a higher-resolution main camera and display, the Xperia C5 Ultra has a bigger screen size and has a higher-capacity battery. The front camera on the C5 Ultra also has an LED flash, which makes for better selfies in the dark.

Whichever Sony Xperia the end-user chooses, they definitely can’t go wrong with the powerful RAM and processor, as well as the high-resolution cameras. The only thing that remains to be seen is the actual speed of the devices, as Sony mobiles are notorious for their relative slowness because of their implementation of the Android OS. Hopefully, Sony has addressed that by now, and that these devices will be a dream to use.
