Sony empowers selfie lovers with the new Sony Xperia C4



Sony has a new smartphone on the way for folks who think the selfie is too important to leave up to a subpar front-facing camera. It’s the Xperia C4, and the star of the show is a 5 megapixel 25mm wide-angle front sensor with its own dedicated flash. The rear camera also isn’t shabby for its standards at 13 megapixels.

Most of the value will come from Sony’s camera app which will include a number of unique shooting modes. Style Portraits, for instance, let you give your photos a sense of style based on some theme, such as vampires or mystery. There’s also AR Mask, a feature that allows you to take a selfie with someone else’s face in in the frame instead of your own. Not sure why someone would want to obscure their own face with a photo of someone else’s, but there you go.


Other specs for the Sony Xperia C4 include a 5.5-inch 1080p display, an octa-core 64-bit 1.7GHz MediaTek MTK6752 chipset, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage with microSD expansion and a 2,600mAh battery. For software you can expect Android 5.0 Lollipop out of the box, though not without Sony’s custom user interface sitting on top.

Pricing and exact availability have yet to be determined, though Sony did reveal that the device would be available in both single and dual SIM variants for a June 2015 launch.

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.

  1. “Sony.. helping you take your narcissism to the next level”.

    Can you imagine this AND a selfie stick.

  2. I thought Sony was leaving the mobile market? Or was that a rumor?

  3. Sony needs to stop spreading their resources on many phones or they will be forced to belly up their mobile division. They should just stick with the Xperia Z series and maybe one low end xperia series. How many series do they have now? X, P, S. Z, neo, mini….etc… The rumors still show the Z, P and now the C in the future? I like Sony products and their Z series are good phones so I don’t want them to leave the mobile market. But they lack direction and sense…

  4. I know I know shouldn’t have fell for it….but WHERE IS MY LOLLIPOP FOR THE Z3V!!!?
