Leaked Sony Xperia C6 photos show a gargantuan handset with a no-compromise front camera
Faced with declining smartphone sales, Sony adopted a conscious shift towards profitability instead of raw sales numbers in the past couple of years. However, although Sony's mobile arm is now focusing on fewer devices, the company does not fully adopt Apple's premium-only strategy. Perhaps Sony's most interesting non-premium smartphone series is the Xperia C line-up, which consists out mid-range devices with the uncommon feature of a front-facing flash.
The most recent member of Sony's Xperia C series is the C5 Ultra, which launched back in August 2015. Back in late January, rumors suggested that Sony will unveil a spiritual successor to the C5 Ultra - which might land as the Xperia C6 - at MWC 2016 in Barcelona. At the event, however, Sony surprised a lot of people by announcing a new smartphone series, the upcoming Xperia X handsets.
Since then, the rumored Xperia C6 (or perhaps C6 Ultra) has fallen off the radar. However, today's leak brings the phone back into attention and also raises some interesting questions.
Unfortunately, the source of these leaked photos does not mention too many details about the phone except the fact that it has a 6-inch display and that it is a mid-range product. Looking at the photos, the phone does match the previously-leaked Xperia C6 renders. Furthermore, the handset also has a large camera sensor on the front flanked by what appears to be an LED flash, all of the trademarks of a Sony Xperia C phone.
Previous rumors have suggested that the Xperia C6 will land with mid-range specs such as a 1080p display and an octa-core MediaTek Helio P10 processor. At the moment, there's no pricing or release date information to discuss, but we'll let you know as soon as we learn more.
