Sony’s Xperia C4 is a phabet built for selfies

Sony today announced the Xperia C4, a mid-range device that it describes at the "next generation selfie smartphone". The handset's flagship feature is a 5 megapixel front-facing camera boasting a 25mm wide-angle lens, LED flash and the ability to shoot HDR images.

"Xperia C4 caters to consumers that want a smartphone that not only takes great photos, but also packs a punch," said John Featherstone, Sony Mobile's local managing director. "Benefiting from Sony’s camera expertise, the 5MP front-facing camera with wide-angle lens lets you capture perfect selfies, while its quality display and performance features provide an all-round advanced smartphone experience."

Other specifications include a 5.5-inch 1080p screen, a 1.7GHz MediaTek eight-core processor, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of expandable storage and a 13 megapixel rear-facing camera. The Xperia C4 is powered by a 2600mAh battery, but unlike many of Sony's other smartphones, is not waterproof or dust resistant.

Sony has yet to confirm Australian availability and pricing for the Xperia C4, but it is expected to priced-in line its predecessor, the Xperia C3, which retails for AUD$369.
