Sony is believed to be working on the successor to last year’s Xperia C5 Ultra. Reportedly called the Xperia C6, real-life photos of the smartphone have surfaced online. As is the case with Sony’s ‘C’ series, the upcoming Xperia C6 is also expected to boast a good selfie camera alongside a front-facing flash.

The Sony Xperia C6 is set to feature a massive 6-inch display, with very thin bezels up front. The highlight will however remain the large selfie camera along with front-facing flash. The photos, spotted by Xperiablog, also hint at dual-SIM card slots, micro-USB port at the bottom and 4G LTE support.
Not much is known except that the smartphone was earlier rumored to be launching at the MWC 2016 earlier this year. The smartphone spotted today seems to be in the testing phase, and could launch in the coming weeks.
The Sony Xperia C5 Ultra launched last year, featured a 6-inch full HD (1920 1080 pixels) IPS display, 1.7GHz MediaTek MT6752 64-bit octa-core processor, and 2GB of RAM. It also included 16GB internal storage, which could be further expanded up to 200GB using a microSD card.
The highlight was a 13-megapixel selfie camera with a front-facing flash, supplemented with a 13-megapixel snapper at the back as well. The smartphone also featured a 2,930mAh battery with ultra STAMINA mode, and connectivity options like dual-SIM card slots, 4G LTE support, Wi-Fi, and GPS. On the software front, it ran on Android 5.0 Lollipop.
Unlike the Samsungs and the Xiaomis, Sony is still to launch a flagship smartphone this year. The last high-end smartphones it launched were the Xperia Z5 and the Xperia Z5 Premium in October last year.
