Another Sony Cosmos image leaks, selfie-centric phone's front camera now visible

Another Sony Cosmos image leaks, selfie-centric phone's front camera now visible
A little over a week ago, industry informant @upleaks published two images of a Sony device that showed us the outlines of a smartphone with thin bottom bezel and a large, but barely visible front-facing camera and an LED flash. Speculation arose that the Sony Cosmos could be a successor to the selfie-centric Xperia C3, but judging by the Bluetooth pane seen in one of the photos, the name Sony Cosmos isn't simply a code name – it seems to be the device's actual name.

Going back to the new image at hand, we can finally better see the selfie cam up front and appreciate its size. What's more, the LED flash right next to it is also easier to make out. Unfortunately, this time around it's impossible to confirm the slimness of the bottom bezel and bask in the asymmetry of the phone.

According to @upleaks, the Sony Cosmos will be powered by a MediaTek processor of unknown power on the hardware side, and Android 5.0 Lollipop (as can be observed), on the software. The rest of the internals carried by the still mysterious Sony Cosmos remain unknown.

What's the use of an improved selfie camera when the software itself would ruin your photo? - from a Sony fan

Yeah I really think Sony should work on their software pertaining to taking pictures and videos. I mean most OEM uses their lens but they're left behind in mobile imaging quality.

Do you have the phone?or are you making assumptions on software that is not released yet?

I don't need to have it, after the arc/S, Xperia cameras lagged behind the competition. Plus, some unbiased reviews and feedback from Xperia owners (including myself) don't lie. Which Xperia phone do you have if I may ask? Are you happy with how the camera software performs so far?

At least the bezel is thinner.And if indeed the phone will be powered by mediatek,it better be cheap
