Sony have had a rough year of late with their latest flagship device receiving a bit of criticism for what is perceived to be a lack of upgrading from the popular Sony Xperia Z3. In fact, along with the Xperia Z4, Sony also launched what is essentially the international version of the Z4 in the form of the Xperia Z3+. Again, to much criticism. That said, they are not the only Sony devices on the Horizon and the company only a few days ago officially introduced two more arrivals to the Sony scene in the form of the Xperia C5 Ultra and the Xperia M5. However, as they were both formally introduced and their specs confirmed, the details around pricing remained somewhat unknown with only the sentiment that the details will become known later on.
Well in terms of the former, the Sony Xperia C5 Ultra, it does now look we have some indication of the price range in which the device will be set. The Hong Kong arm of Sony has now started listed the Xperia C5 Ultra on their site and with it, comes a HK$ pricing of 3,298. This equates to roughly $425. Of course, this does not indicate that it will be the same price in other regions and in fact, it is likely to be more in some markets, but it does provide some guidance on what type of pricing to expect for the C5 Ultra. Not to mention, the listing also states a release date (again in Hong Kong) of August 14th. How long before it is released in other markets, again is an unknown, although it is expected to reach other emerging markets this month.
If you need a reminder of the C5 Ultra, the confirmed specs include a 6.0-inch FHD IPS display. Inside, the C5 Ultra comes sporting 2GB RAM and powered by a 64-bit MediaTek (MTK6752) octa core processor (clocking at 1.7GHz). In terms of cameras, the C5 Ultra comes equipped with a 13-megapixel rear camera, which is coupled with another 13-megapixel camera on the front. Additional features on offer include 16GB internal storage, microSD card slot and running on Android 5.0 (Lollipop).
