Sony’s C5 Ultra and M5 smartphones may be the latest to jump on the selfie phone bandwagon

Sony’s mobile division may be bringing the rest of the company down, but that hasn’t stopped the company from working on new phones just yet. Thanks to 9to5Google, we’re getting a look at the forthcoming Xperia C5 Ultra and M5, the latest in Sony’s lineup. These leaks apparently came from the site Mail.ru, which appeared to inadvertently post a review of the devices early — but 9to5Google managed to grab the photos and info before it was all taken down.

The Xperia C5 Ultra appears to be a successor to the Xperia C4; it looks like the C5 will boast a bigger screen (6 inches, up from the 5.5-inch C4) and a front-facing camera that sports a super high resolution of 13 megapixels. It’ll also have a flash, making this a phone clearly aimed…

Watch Kendrick Lamar as Uncle Sam in his ‘For Free? (Interlude)’ music video

Kendrick Lamar has already given us three music videos for songs off his critically acclaimed sophomore album To Pimp A Butterfly, including the tremendous treatment for “Alright,” which should pull in a VMA Award if there’s any justice in the world. Now Kendrick’s back with a video for “For Free? (Interlude)” which is one of the boldest and deepest tracks on the album, and the new video is nothing if not audacious. Featuring a choir, a full band, and a rapidly multiplying Kendrick Lamar, the brisk video — directed by Joe Weil & The Little Homies — is the latest addition to one of the best albums to come around in some time.
