Sony appears to be working on Xperia M Ultra with an awesome selfie camera. According to a report by Phone Radar, a post on Weibo has suggested that the Japanese company is planning to launch two smartphones -- Xperia C6 Ultra and Xperia M Ultra – and the latter is supposed to be camera-centric. 

The report claimed that the Xperia M Ultra could be the rumoured Xperia M6, the successor of Xperia M5 that was released in 2015, while the Xperia C6 Ultra is the successor of the Xperia C5 Ultra.

The Weibo post obtained by Phone Radar has some eye-catching information on the Xperia M Ultra, especially features of the front-facing camera. The device is said to sport a 6-inch FHD Super Narrow Bezel Display (IPS-Neo, 120Hz, WhiteMagic, Triluminos), fingerprint sensor and supports USB Type-C.

The Xperia M Ultra reportedly has a 23MP rear dual-camera, one with 24mm and f2 OSS (optical steady shot), and the other with 75mm, f2.2 OSS aperture. The device is expected to have a trend-setting 16MP front-snapper with 25mm and f2 OSS aperture. If the report turns out to be true, it will give a good competition to the HTC 10's 5MP front-snapper with f/1.8 aperture, 23mm, OIS, autofocus and 1.34 µm pixel size.

Under the hood, the Xperia M Ultra is expected to have a Qualcomm Snapdragon 652 processor, a 32GB internal storage, a 3GB RAM, and a 4,280mAh battery.

It may be mentioned that Sony launched three devices from its X series -- Xperia X, Xperia X Performance, and Xperia XA -- at the Mobile World Congress 2016. It is also said to be working on a device called the Xperia X Premium.
