The selfie-centric Sony Xperia C5 Ultra is now available to purchase in the US. As is the case with most Sony smartphones stateside, you can not get it from a carrier. Instead, you’ll have to go the unlocked route, paying full price for the device.
Thankfully though that price isn’t all too big. The Xperia C5 Ultra is priced at $319.99 at Expansys, and $329.99 at Amazon. Both retailers only have the white version in stock at the moment, but they are selling different models it turns out. Expansys has the E5563 dual-SIM iteration of the phone, while Amazon is offering the E5506 single-SIM one.
The Xperia C5 Ultra stands out through its 13 MP selfie camera that even has its own LED flash. Otherwise, it’s a mid-range phablet. It has a 6-inch 1080p touchscreen, a 13 MP rear camera with LED flash, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of expandable storage, and a 2,930 mAh battery. It’s powered by the MediaTek MT6752 SoC which has a 1.7 GHz octa-core Cortex-A53 CPU. The handset runs Android 5.0 Lollipop.
