Yesterday, Sony teased on Twitter with a post “see your #selfies in a whole new light”, bringing speculation that they might be releasing a new handset. Today, Sony has unveiled a new selfie-centric device, the Xperia C3. The Xperia handset will feature a 5MP wide-angle front-facing camera with LED flash, optimized for taking better “selfies”.
The Sony Xperia C3 will feature a 5.5” 720p display, 1.2 Ghz quad-core Snapdragon processor, 1GB RAM, 8MP rear camera with Exmor RS, 5MP front-facing wide-angle camera with LED flash, 4G LTE, and a 2500 mAh battery.
In order to provide the best possible results for “selfies”, the C3’s front-facing camera will also have a 25mm wide-angle lens that will fit more into the picture. The front camera will also have what is called “Superior Auto” that will be comprised of four shooting modes, allowing for the best possible results. The rear camera will also support this feature, but will support up to 36 different shooting modes.
Lastly, the device will support dual-SIM’s and will allow users to take advantage of both SIM’s at the same time. The Xperia C3 will come in three colors: black, white, and mint. The handset will be available globally starting in August. Sony did not announce a price for the device.
