Alleged render of Xperia C4 shows large frontal camera, cool color
For the past month, we've heard a couple of rumors regarding an upcoming selfie-centric smartphone by Sony – the alleged Xperia C4, a.k.a. Xperia Cosmos, which should succeed the Xperia C3 – one of the first smartphones to come out with a large front-facing camera and a "made for selfies" marketing campaign.
The guys from Xperia Blog have received a render, which the leakster claims to show the new Xperia C4 in all of its huge-frontal-cam glory. Apparently, the phone will rock a large frontal lens opening, just like its predecessor, coupled with a LED flash – you know, for when you want to take selfies in the dark. It will be available in three colors – black, white, and the pictured turquoise, according to the leak. Why is it in front of the Mona Lisa, you ask? We don't really know.
As far as hardware goes – there is no solid info yet. We believe it is safe to assume that the display will still be around the 5.5" mark, though, a better screen-to-body ratio should also be in tow. The frontal snapper on the C3 packed a 5 MP resolution, and we wouldn't be surprised if that gets upgraded in the C4, as some of the more recent selfie phones have definitely raised the bar (the HTC Desire EYE and its 13 MP front and back snappers come to mind). Early reports suggest that the Xperia C4 will be powered by a MediaTek SoC, which would be interesting, seeing as Sony has been sticking with Qualcomm chips so far.
Reportedly, the Xperia C4 (or Cosmos) should be announced some time this summer, probably around July, at the end of the Xperia C3's first year cycle.
