Here are the new phones of Week 32

Peter, 09 August, 2015

This week was about mid-to-large screens and that all-important photography aspect, with an escape from small batteries. Sony kicked things off with two phones with 13MP selfie cameras. Asus brought out three Zenfone, which upgrade current models with new tricks.

The Sony Xperia C5 Ultra packs a massive 6" 1080p screen and has a 13MP selfie camera with LED flash above it. The Xperia M5 is like a bigger Z3 Compact with a 5" 1080p screen and also a 13MP selfie camera. No flash for it, but the back camera is a next-gen 21.5MP camera on the back. Both use MediaTek chipsets and Android 5.0.

The Asus Zenfone 2 Deluxe is an upgraded version of the top 5.5" model. RAM is now fixed at 4GB (no 3GB model) and storage starts at 64GB with a 128GB option, both have microSD card slots for up 128GB more.

The Zenfone 2 Laser upgrades the camera of the current 5" model to 13MP on the back and 5MP on the front. Both pack reasonably wide f/2.0 apertures. The Deluxe continues to use Intel Atom chipsets, while the Laser breaks from tradition with a Snapdragon 410 chipset.

Asus also unveiled the Zenfone Max. It has a 5.5" 720p screen and Snapdragon 410 chipset, so a mid-range model, but it's defining feature is the 5,000mAh battery. It's not yet clear if it has BoostMaster like the Zenfone 2 Deluxe – if it doesn’t, charging that huge battery will take forever.
