Xperia C5 Ultra will have bezel-free display
The Sony Xperia C5 Ultra has previously made the rounds under the codename Sony Lavender and the unannounced handset’s manual has made the rounds, revealing a number of details about the handset. First, the handset will be the first Sony device to sport a bezel-free display and secondly, it will launch with the model number E5553.
The bezel-free display confirms what we’ve already expected – thanks to previously leaked photos – and means we’ll see a handset where Sony has pushed the boundaries of its design to new highs. One particular thing that has been quite disappointing about past Sony flagships – which the Xperia C5 Ultra isn’t likely to be given its mid-range billing – is the big bezels around the display and the Xperia C5 Ultra could be a sign of things to come in future flagships.
The manual has also revealed the controls and external hardware on the handset, including a camera with LED flash and loudspeaker on the front of the handset along with a dedicated camera button, microSD card slot and nano SIM card slot on its side. Like other handsets, the volume buttons can also be used as a camera zoom button.
What of the rest of the handset specs? Well very little is actually known but what we can expect from Sony’s next mid-range device is a 5.5-inch Full HD handset and given the bezel-free display, we can expect the handset to be smaller than other similarly sized handsets. Also on board is expected to be a MediaTek MT6752 SoC, 2GB RAM, 13MP rear camera and a 5MP front facing snapper, which is accompanied by the aforementioned LED flash.

The handset is expected to be announced next month so there’s not long to go until Sony unveils the handset and of course, we’ll bring you all the info once it happens.
