Sony has revealed the Xperia C3, which is dubbed “the ultimate new smartphone for selfies and social sharing.”
According to the Sony blog, the new handset features a “PROselfie cam” and dedicated selfie apps so that you can get your self-loving photography on-the-fly.
One of the defining features of the Xperia C3 is the wide-angle 5MP front-facing camera (so you don’t have to awkwardly miss your face with an inferior front camera), a 5.5-in HD display, and a 1.2GHz quad-core Snapdragon CPU.
Other features include new apps like Superior Auto, which changes your camera settings to create the perfect shot, and Portrait Retouch v2, promising to keep you picture perfect with a real-time makeover, frame options, and magic eye beam effects.
PRv2 offers 10 different beauty styles, four of which are for guys, and the ability to retouch up to two people per photo.
There’s also an app called Social Live, which lets you broadcast awesome moments live as they happen.
“Social live lets you broadcast every moment as it happens live via Facebook. Get your friend’s response right on the screen and keep the conversation going, all in real-time, and go beyond social sharing as you know it.”
Additional specs include 4G/LTE support, 8 gigs of selfie-storage, and 1GB of memory. The device is just 7.6mm thin, and boasts dual-sim technology.
