    Sony has been having a rough time of things in the mobile market for quite a few years now. Despite that, they remain determined and are pressing valiantly forward. They are already planning to announce a new Xperia smartphone later this year (probably in September). They have been teasing little tidbits about the device, and the specs have also already leaked.

    The latest hints they have dropped seem to confirm that the device will come in a gold colored option. Will adding a bit of bling to their devices really help the Xperia line stand out? Their devices have always been top-notch in quality, performance and features, but were a bit bland. Perhaps a bit of "dressing" will make it more appealing.

    The device is rumored to be the Xperia C5 Ultra, and here are the supposedly leaked specs:
    • 64-bit octa-core chipset (probably a MediaTek chip)
    • 5.5-inch 1080p display
    • 2GB of RAM
    • 13MP rear camera
    • Front-facing camera with its own flash
    • Water-resistant
    Do you think adding a gold color option will help sell some Sony phones?

    There's no excuse for only 2GB ram in any flagship at this point. I don't see that as enough with apps and features hogging more and more ram.

    ^ Sounds like a midrange phone to me. 1080 display?
