Xperia C5 Ultra leaks with slim bezels and frontal LED flash, ready for your selfie stick

Xperia C5 Ultra leaks with slim bezels and frontal LED flash, ready for your selfie stick
We recently heard that Sony is working on an upcoming phablet with a 5.5" display that was codenamed Lavender internally, and then its retail name was tipped to be Sony Xperia C5 Ultra, positioning it as a successor of sorts to the Xperia C4, which in its turn is a 5.5-incher with an LED flash next to the selfie camera.

Well, that front-facing LED flash will stay, it seems, judging from the leaked manual of the C5 Ultra, and the rumors are that the front camera resolution will equal the 13 MP rear shooter this time. The Xperia C5 Ultra is expected to sport a 1080p display of at least 5.5 inches, and, at launch, it should run Android Lollipop. The other specs are tipped to be a 64-bit octa-core processor made by MediaTek, and 2 GB of RAM. 

That's not all there is to it, though, as you can see in Sony's renders of the handset below, as they are depicting a phone with extremely thin side bezels, and quite the modes bottom bezel, too, which should bode well for the C5 Ultra's screen-to-body ratio. As for pricing and availability, these are yet up in the air, but we'd assume Sony might make a splash when the IFA expo nears at the beginning of September.

I think uneven top and bottom bezels make a phone look ugly.

Wierd maybe but not ugly for me the bezelless phone from Sharp with thin bezel at the top & sides is the best looking smartphone that i've seen (but only the front side). But i still prefer little bit more bezels on every side of the screen for better and more comfort usability.

The lack of side bezels is great. Good work Sony. The Omni design is getting old now. The phone needs some curves like on the LG or Oneplus.

The upper bezel is understandably big, because it will be housing two large camera sensors. For the lower bezel Sony opted to listen to criticism and they reduced it drastically. But does it look good? It makes the phone like so top heavy. Also ergonomics would suffer with having the thumb stretching so low to reach the menu buttons. I'd rather accept 3-4mm bigger low bezel, make the phone look nicely symmetrical and have a place to hold it securely when I touch the home button. 3-4mm longer phone in the pocket makes really no difference.

People always have something to complained right? The upper bezels is where the camera sensor located that's y it has bigger bezels/ You cant' have a small upper bezels with 13 mp camera sensor

Did you even read my comment? I am complaining about the lower bezel being too thin. I'm not complaining about the upper one.

looks great. Good job Sony. Don't worry about the complainers, those One plus One fanboys are blind.

The price will determine the success of this phone and knowing Sony that's not very encouraging.

Great sony. next time though, make the phone thicker so that way you will be able to make the top similar to the bottom bezel. overall a nice change. the bezel-less sides look great and help to hold the device more easily. they should be able to make it happen.
