Sony Mobile’s taking the selfie social trend to the next level by introducing the world’s best selfie smartphone, the Xperia C3, which features a wide-angled 5MP front cam coupled with soft LED flash and some fantastic apps to top it all up.
The Xperia C3 still has a rear camera rated 8MP, matched up with its 5MP front shooter with 25mm sensor capturing photos within its 80 degree field of view. That’s pretty handy knowing that you have to extend your arms far from you to get a wider shot for both selfies and groupies. The soft LED flash also adds up to lighting in a significant way for both less and well lit environments.
It also has a 7.6 mm slim profile, weighing only about 150 grams. Its Triluminous display runs at 5.5-inch high definition screen with 1280 x 720 resolution, powered with Sony Mobile BRAVIA Engine 2. Processor is placed with a quad core Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 set at 1.2GHz, supported with Adreno 305 GPU, 1GB RAM and 8GB flash storage.
