Sony Xperia M5 launches in India today
The Sony Xperia M5, which was unveiled at the beginning of last month, is heading to India and Hong Kong today, according to Sony’s social media accounts. The ‘super mid-range’ smartphone arrives with a Rs. 37,990 (HK$ 3,698, £372, €512, $572) price tag, which might prove to be a tough sell against the low cost competition in India.
For a recap of the specifications, the Xperia M5 comes with a 5.0-inch Full HD display, a 64-bit octa-core MediaTek Helio X10 SoC, 3GB of RAM and 16GB of internal memory, with a microSD card slot for expansion if desired. The phone ships with a 21 megapixel rear camera that features Hybrid Autofocus. There’s also a 13 megapixel front facing camera for high resolution selfies, although there isn’t a flash on the front like there is with the Xperia C5.

The phone also comes with a 2,600mAh battery, Android 5.0 Lollipop on board, and IP65 and IP68 certifications for water and dust resistance. It’s not quite clear if this is the dual-SIM version of the Xperia M5 or not in India, although there’s a strong change that it is.
The Xperia M5 will be available in black, white and gold colours. We will keep an eye out for a list of retailers.
