Sony Xperia C5 Ultra popped up on our radar just recently. Previously known as Lavender, the smartphone leaked in some blurry photos and a piece of the official manual. Its key feature is supposed to be a 5.5″ 1080p bezel-free display.
Today the Xperia C5 Ultra was featured in a very detailed photo, courtesy of Sao Paulo Police Department. Apparently the police recovered a stolen unit of Sony Xperia C5 Ultra. It went missing within the Brazilian certification agency (Anatel) and the phone was later advertised on Facebook for an upcoming auction. The Brazilian forces did some good undercover work and retrieved the Xperia C5 Ultra unit. What happens next is rather interesting.
Instead of returning the Xperia C5 Ultra prototype directly to Sony or Anatel, the police published a report about recovering the device accompanied by a press photo. And thanks to this excellent police work we can now confirm the Xperia C5 Ultra indeed comes with a bezel-free display.
The Xperia C5 Ultra should come with a 5.5″ 1080p display, while the rest of the known specs include a MediaTek MT6752 chip with an octa-core processor and 2GB RAM, plus two 13MP cameras with LED flash – one for the back and one at the front.
Now that we know the C5 Ultra was sent for certifications, we bet its announcement should happen very shortly.
