Sony Xperia C3 will take class-leading selfies

Sony-C3-conceptThe rise of the selfie in recent years has been facilitated largely as a result of smartphones featuring front-facing cameras, although of course, these secondary snappers tend to have a much lower resolution sensor than the primary unit found on the back.

However, Sony is hoping to change all that with the release of the Xperia C3, which will have a five megapixel camera mounted just above the display, according to TechRadar.

The Xperia C3 is not a slouch in other departments either, as it features a 5.5 inch screen and a quad core processor. There is even an eight megapixel camera on its rear for good measure, along with the Android KitKat operating system, to tie all of this technology together.

Sony has clearly decided that consumers will value being able to take selfies that are more than just underwhelming approximations of what is possible with a smartphone?s primary camera. And no doubt, this new phablet will be a hit with a certain demographic when it is released later in the year.

Although pricing for the Xperia C3 has not been announced, it will be hitting Chinese retailers in August, with a global release presumably occurring in the autumn.
