News: Sony launches next generation “selfie smartphone” – Xperia™ C4

The selfie phenomenon is about to kick up a notch with the introduction of Xperia™ C4 – Sony’s next generation PROselfie smartphone, featuring a best in class 5MP front camera, a Full HD display and superior performance.

Thanks to the powerful 5MP front camera with 25mm wide-angle lens. Sony’s Exmor RTM for mobile sensor, soft LED flash and HDR features means the pictures will always be stunning, even in those ‘hard to perfect’ low light conditions. Superior auto automatically optimises settings to give you the best possible picture and SteadyShot™ technology compensates for any camera shake. And with 13MP, autofocus and HDR packed in there is no compromise on the rear camera, which delivers great shots for those rare moments you’re not in the picture.
>Users will also be able to get even more fun out of your smartphone with a suite of creative camera apps such as Style portrait with styles including ‘vampire’ and ‘mystery’ to add a unique edge to your selfie. Moreover, apps such as AR mask give your selfie a twist by letting you place a different face over your own face or others’ faces while you snap a selfie.

Watching movies on your smartphone is more enjoyable thanks to Sony’s TV technology – such as Mobile BRAVIA® Engine 2 and super vivid-mode – which offers amazing clarity and colour brightness. Enjoy viewing from any angle with IPS technology.

Great video deserves great audio to match, so Xperia C4 features Sony’s audio expertise to deliver crisp and clear audio quality. With or without headphones, you can sit back and enjoy your favourite entertainment in all its glory.

The design of Xperia C4 has also been crafted with precise detail and care to ensure every aspect amplifies the sharp and vivid display. A minimal frame around the scratch-resistant screen enhances both the viewing experience and the smartphone design, while its lightweight build feels comfortable in the hand.

And whether you’re running multiple apps, such as checking Facebook, snapping selfies or listening to the best music – you can do it all at lighting speed thanks to Xperia C4’s impressive Octa-core processor. Powered by an efficient 64-bit Octa-core processor, Xperia C4 makes it easier than ever to multitask and switch between your favourite apps, without affecting performance. Ultra-fast connectivity with 4G capabilities means it’s quicker than ever to download your favourite audio or video content and surf the web without lag.

Xperia C4’s large battery (2,600mAh) will provide over eight hours of video viewing time, meaning that the entire first season of Breaking Bad can be binged uninterrupted, while Battery STAMINA Mode 5.0 ensures complete control over how your battery is used. And it is compatible with more than 195 Sony NFC-enabled devices including SmartBand Talk (SWR30) and Stereo Bluetooth® Headset (SBH60). Users can also customise the smartphone with the protective desk-stand SCR38 Cover or with a full range of original Made for Xperia covers.

The Xperia C4 will be available in Single SIM and Dual SIM in select markets (not sure if Singapore will get the Dual Sim version, but I will update when there’s more info) from the beginning of June 2015, in white, black or mint.

Pricing, TBA. (I’ll update when info is in)
