HIGH STREET PHONE SHOP Carphone Warehouse has confirmed that the Sony Xperia M5 will see a release in the UK, despite reports that us Brits had been left out.
Sony announced the Xperia M5 in August, and promptly confirmed to The INQUIRER that it and the Xperia C5 would not see a UK release.
But it seems that the firm has had a change of heart, as Carphone Warehouse has started taking pre-orders for the handset ahead of a release on 8 February, which means you're in luck if you've been holding out for a potential Xperia M5 release for the past five months.
The Carphone Warehouse website says that the handset is available to order in a choice of black, white and gold colours, and on contracts with EE, O2 and Vodafone. Prices for the Xperia M5 start at £22 per month, which comes with 500 minutes, unlimited texts and 500MB of data.
The Sony Xperia M5 is the sequel to the storage-squeezing Xperia M4 Aqua, and comes with IP65 and IP68 certification to offer resistance against dust and water.
It has the same 5in Full HD screen as on the M4 Aqua, powered by MediaTek's 64-bit Helio X10 octa-core processor, 3GB of RAM and Google's Android 5.0 Lollipop software.
The so-called "super mid-range" handset, whatever the hell that means, is all about appealing to people who like to take pictures of themselves. There's a 13MP camera on the front of the Xperia M5, complete with autofocus and Full HD video recording, alongside a 21.5MP camera on the rear that comes with hybrid autofocus, 5x zoom and 4K video recording.
The Xperia M5 doesn't hold many surprises beyond that, with 16GB of built-in storage expandable by an additional 200GB, a 2,600mAh battery offering a claimed two days of life and a dual-SIM slot. µ
