Unannounced Sony Xperia C6 Ultra gets leaked with specs in tow

Sony's Xperia line didn't have a great time of it last year, thanks largely to the controversy that surrounded Qualcomm's Snapdragon 810 processor. The chip built an unwelcome reputation for overheating, and upon the launch of the long-awaited Xperia Z4 in Japan, some retailers actually forewarned consumers that they were buying a device with potentially major flaws. Still, the company is continuing to soldier on, and in recent times, we've heard much about the as-yet-unannounced Xperia C6. Now, a new report has offered some updated information along with a few renders of what's being touted as the Xperia C6 Ultra. 

The Xperia C5 Ultra only launched back in August of last year, but of all the big names in the mobile industry, Sony's release cycles tend to be more difficult to predict. Therefore, it's very possible that a new Xperia C6 / Ultra could be on the cards for the near future. A product line famed for its strong selfie cameras, the Xperia C6 / Ultra looks set to follow suit in this regard, and as we saw in a leaked hands-on image last month, the display will be essentially edge-to edge.

NowhereElse has dished out the specs, which, as with the Xperia C5 Ultra, seem fairly mid-range. The display will be a full-HD, 6-inch offering, whilst MediaTek's octa-core MT6755 processor clocked at 1.9 GHz will be a slight bump on the MT6752 of the Xperia C5 Ultra. The device may also include Mali-T860 graphics and 2 gigs of RAM, with 16 GB of expandable storage. 

Aside from the 20-megapixel rear-facing camera, the star of the show will be the 16-megapixel front shooter complete with LED flash. With pictures of our food not quite cutting it, we've become a generation addicted to selfies, and Sony's Xperia C range will look to continue ensuring that all of our facial blemishes show clearly when we capture them.

Whether the Xperia C6 and Xperia C6 Ultra are the same handset has yet to be established. Since NowhereElse mentions in the report that the moniker "has yet to be confirmed," we're inclined to think that these new specs and renders describe the same device that's been discussed over the past months. 

Whatever the case, let's hope Sony comes through with an announcement very soon.

Interesting. Looks really nice. Too bad it's Sony. Don't want your data being sent to some random server in Asia.

One of the best looking android phone in 2016. Dual front facing speaker and slightly slimmer chasis would make this phone even better looking and a multimedia beast.

Look carefully at the image, only one firing speaker at the bottom.

I said "Would". I wish they have Dual front facing speaker and slimmer chasis. I think Slimmer Sony phone looks better. If this phone were 6.5mm this phone would look much better. Dual front facing speaker would have make this phone a true multimedia beast.

I thing they discontinued the E series

So they are not catering for the lowest end market like Samsung J series?

What crap specs. They should not even put the Sony name on this. Unless all you do is take selfies it is worthless. And I am a big Sony fan.

Please do not put MediaTek processor, which tend to be controversial and to freeze the cell.
