Yesterday, Sony added another phone to its Xperia line, called the Sony Xperia C3. What’s so special about this handset? It comes with a 5-megapixel front-facing camera that, according to Sony, makes this phone ideal for taking selfies and the best selfie smartphone out there.
The Xperia C3 sports a 5.5in display and a resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels, accompanied by Sony’s Mobile BRAVIA Engine 2 for a better image quality. On the inside is a 1.2GHz Snapdragon 400 processor (Cortex-A7), 1GB of RAM and 8GB of built-in storage, expandable via a microSD slot (up to 32GB). It is powered by a 2,500mAh battery and runs Android 4.4.2 KitKat.
On the C3’s back is an 8-megapixel main camera with a LED flash, but what makes this phone really stand out is the 5-megapixel front shooter with a 25mm lens. It has a “soft” LED flash, but no autofocus. It also comes with the Superior Auto mode, just like the C3’s rear camera, and other great features, including Portrait Retouch v.2, Timeshift-Burst, Picture Effects, Social Live etc.
The Xperia C3 supports Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, NFC, Bluetooth 4.0, microUSB 2.0 and 4G LTE, and there’s also a dual-SIM model (the Xperia C3 Dual), which supports both dual-standby and dual-call.
The Sony Xperia C3 will be available in white, black and mint, and it will launch in August, starting with China and then the rest of the world. The pricing details are yet to be announced.
