Sony's brand new Xperia M5 will cost around $400
Last week, Sony unveiled two new Android Lollipop smartphones - Xperia C5 Ultra and Xperia M5 - both of which will be available to buy starting later this month (at least in some markets).

While Sony didn't reveal the prices of the two devices, we already heard that the Xperia C5 Ultra would cost around $425 in Hong Kong.

Now, we also have info on the price of the Xperia M5. According to ePrice, the M5 will cost around $408 (12,900 TWD) in Taiwan. The C5 Ultra will be cheaper there, costing around $375 (11,900 TWD). All in all, if we're talking about international markets, the Xperia M5 should cost around $400, while the Xperia C5 will probably be a bit cheaper.

Unlike the Xperia C5 Ultra, which is a big, 6-inch device, the Xperia M5 is pretty compact, thanks to the fact that it sports a 5-inch 1080p display. The smartphone is dust- and water-resistant (IP68-certified), and is Sony's first device to be powered by a 64-bit, octa-core MediaTek Helio X10 MT6795 processor. The new handset offers a 21.5 MP rear camera with fast hybrid auto focus (0.25 seconds), and a 13 MP front-facing camera. Other features include 3 GB of RAM, 16 GB of internal memory, microSD card support, and a 2600 mAh battery.

Sony might not plan to release the Xperia M5 and the Xperia C5 Ultra in North America. But we'll let you know if we hear anything about this.
