Sony Xperia C5 Ultra: The T2 Ultra Sequel?

And I was wondering about this earlier

Xperia C5 Ultra confirmed as snippets of user guide unveiled

Rumoured specifications include a 1080p resolution display that is bigger than the Xperia C4 (5.5-inches) and feature a MediaTek MT6752 (64-bit octa-core LTE) chipset.


The MediaTek 6752 is their competitor to the Snapdragon 615.

Here are their AnTuTu scores:

And here is what the C5 Ultra will look like:


I wonder about this, however:


Will it really be possible to take photos without accidentally touching the screen and ruining focus?

I really liked the design of the Xperia T2 Ultra. This “update” — of sorts — seems to address the shortcomings of the original.

But how will Sony price this?

I hope they don’t lose their minds like Samsung and expect US$500.

I had settled on the phone I wanted to get. This throws all of my thinking out the window now — at least until they reveal the price.

Sony has made some very un-Sony like moves with their phones. I think they could be trusted not to abandon this.

    Are they really going to use the problematic MT6752 in this model? I don’t know of any really working device with MT6752. At least not with a Lollipop firmware. Phones like the Ecoo E04, iOcean X9, iOcean M6752, etc. all overheat until the screen pops out from the heat and some even die totally after only a few days. I accidentally bought an iOcean X9 just because I was curious on the MT6752 SoC from a developer perspective, and it was more or less DOA. I sent it back for “repair” but the design errors in the whole build seems beyond repair. Users report on XDA and various support forums that they can’t even hold their phones because they get so hot. Some devices brings up warning notices on the screen at 70°C about overheating whilst others like the iOcean M6752 just keeps going until it dies totally. All these models were introduced as to come with LP but were delivered with buggy KK instead and so far there are only buggy LP Beta fw for them. Not even bigger companies like JiaYu have relased anything but LP Beta fw for their MT6752 device S3. Have you noticed this overheating problem with MT6752 devices? I can’t find anything written about it here on your blog. Or maybe it’s the OEM factory that puts all these small brands devices together that is the problem and not the MT6752 SoC? The greatly overheating dvices from different brands seems to have the same factory in common. There are traces in various device settings, parameters and names of the brand name “Alps”, which I think comes from the OEM factory. Maybe you can shed some light on all this?
