Sony India today will be launching their Xperia M5 device in India today at an event in Delhi. The device was announced last month alongside the Xperia C5 Ultra and features a 5 inch Full HD (1920x1080) display, powered by MediaTek Helio X10 Octa Core SoC and runs on Android 5.0 (Lollipop) with the company's custom UI on top.
The Xperia M5 features a 21.5 MP rear camera which Sony claims can focus in less than 0.25 sec thanks to their Hybrid AF LED Flash. This new technology by Sony is nothing but a combination of Phase Detection Autofocus (PDAF) and Contast Auto Focus Detection. The 21.5 MP camera features a f2.2 apertures and is equipped by the latest Exmor RS IMX230 sensor from Sony.
The camera is capable of shooting 4K videos. Sony has bumped up the selfie department too, by adding a 13MP front snapper which too uses a Exmor RS sensor. It also support 1080p video recording, so expect flawless video call - provided you have such a high network bandwidth in India (pun intended)!<blockquote class="twitter-tweet blockquote" lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">High on detail – Low on pocket, It’s coming, Tomorrow! <a href="http://t.co/d6Z0EkBuv0">pic.twitter.com/d6Z0EkBuv0</a></p>— Sony Xperia India (@SonyXperiaIndia) <a href="https://twitter.com/SonyXperiaIndia/status/641199957769216000">September 8, 2015</a></blockquote> <script async src="//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script>
