Sony Announces The Xperia C5 Ultra With Front/Rear 13MP Cameras And A 6-Inch Edge-To-Edge Screen

The Sony Xperia C5 Ultra is a big phone. I don't mean to make any predictions about its popularity—I mean it's physically very big. The C5 Ultra is a 6-inch device, but the display goes all the way to the edges. Sony is also making a note of the 13MP front-facing camera with flash, but you might struggle to hold onto this monster of a phone while taking a selfie.

Sony Announces Android M Developer Preview For Xperia Devices

At this year's I/O, Google again made a developer preview of the upcoming version of Android available for download. Thing is, it only ran on Nexus phones and tablets. Today Sony has announced plans to release a test build of Android M for Xperia products in the Sony Open Device program as well. Here we see it running on an Xperia Z3 Compact.

There are a few things to keep in mind before you rush to the source page below. A wordpress error appears for links to the "easy-to-follow guide" and the "necessary software binaries" that you need to create a test image and flash it to your own device.

Sony Releases An AOSP-Based Recovery For Xperia Z1, Z1 Compact, Z Ultra, T2 Ultra, T3, M2, And E3 Phones

Sony is continuing its odd support for modifications and software based on Android's open source core. Today they're releasing a collection of flashable recovery partitions for some phones - technically these count as "custom" recoveries, but they're based on AOSP, and therefore pretty close to what you'd find on Nexus devices. Sony's intro video does state that the recovery can restore data, flash custom ROMs, and boot to multiple ROMs, something that most stock recoveries can't handle.

The new recovery is available on the Xperia Z1, Xperia Z1 Compact, Xperia Z Ultra, Xperia T2 Ultra, Xperia T3, Xperia M2, and Xperia E3, all of which need to be unlocked at the bootloader level and running the latest "generic" software from Sony.
