The Sony Xperia M5 and Sony Xperia C5 Ultra were both officially announced last week, although the company did not give pricing information at that time. Both of these new smartphones are expected to release this month to select world regions, and the Xperia M5 is an upper mid-range phone while the C5 Ultra is aimed more at selfie enthusiasts. Now we have some details of Sony Xperia M5 and Xperia C5 Ultra price indicators.
In our Sony Xperia M5 launch article we gave details of specs and more for this device, and it looks as though the handset should appeal to plenty of buyers. The phone has a 5-inch Full HD display, 64-bit octa-core processor, 3GB of RAM, and dust and water-resistance. It also sports a 21.5-megapixel rear camera and 13-megapixel front-facing shooter.
Now ePrice has revealed that the price of the Xperia M5 for Taiwan will be TWD 12,900. That equates to around $400, Â£257, â‚¬363 or Rs. 25,750 at the time of writing. However, we’ll point out as always that pricing can vary by region and that these equivalents are merely guidelines for what you can expect.
