A lot of attention has been placed on Sony’s powerful new midrange Xperia M5, primarily due to the new camera module. The Xperia M5 will sport a 21.5MP Exmor RS camera capable of 0.25 second hybrid autofocus. It is the first new high-end camera sensor that Sony has used in a while and therefore it’s no surprise its images will be scrutinised to see what improvements have been made.

A number of media outlets in Taiwan got to briefly test how fast the hybrid autofocus was earlier today, which you can see in the videos below. There’s no doubt it appears to be quite fast, this can more easily be seen when comparing against HTC One M9+, which also utilises the MediaTek helio X10 chipset.

We also have a couple of sample pictures from the Sony Xperia M5 (E5653) that you can see below. It shows the pictures are taken at F2.0 with the full size images coming in at around 5.5MB each. There is also a comparison for each picture against the HTC One M9+, along with some 100% crops. The full-size pictures can be accessed by clicking on the image.
