New Delhi, August 26 – Clicking selfies is a craze nowadays and Sony is trying to cash in on it. On Monday, the company launched the Xperia C3 in India. The device is notable for its 5-megapixel front camera which covers a wider angle than the front cameras in most of other phones, allowing users to click better selfies.
The phone supports a unique gesture – double tap on the back cover — that can be used to click selfies. The device will go on sale at a price of Rs 23,990 from September 1.
To justify the selfie tag attached to the device, Sony has also equipped the front camera with the kind of features that are normally reserved for rear cameras. For example, four automatic modes, including superior auto, are supported on the front camera.
The phone even has a “soft” LED flash for the front camera. To make sure that the images you click you Xperia C3 are processed properly, Sony has bundled ProSelfieCam and Portrait Retouch app on the device. Other than the supposedly stellar front camera, the Xperia C3 has an 8-megapixel rear camera.
It has a 5.5-inch screen with 720P resolution, 8GB internal memory, support for a microSD card and dual-SIM functionality. The device is powered by a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor running at 1.2GHz and 1GB RAM. The device runs on Android 4.4.
