The camera is said to use a hybrid autofocus system which would bring focusing time to a quarter of a second. The primary camera has an f/2.2 lens and it can do ISO 3200. With the Xperia M5 you will be getting sharp and bright images which can compare to a compact camera image. This tech construction is allegedly keeping the battery running for two full days before needing a good charge.



This new Sony Xperia M5 smartphone will come to several emerging markets in the next few weeks along with the C5 Ultra. It will be available in white, black and gold. There is no official price available at the moment.
