Lots of Sony Xperia C3 hands-on photos show up
Sony earlier today announced what was presented as “the world’s best selfie smartphone”: the Xperia C3. While the handset won’t be available to buy before August, a few Chinese bloggers already managed to spend some time with it - that’s because Sony held a press event in China to showcase the C3 there.

Resembling the 7mm-thin Xperia T3 (which was introduced in June), the C3 is quite thin itself at 7.6mm. The main selling point of the new handset is its 5MP front-facing "PROselfie" camera that offers a soft flash and an 80 degree field of view. Users can take selfies in several ways, including by smiling (thanks to a Smile Shutter function), or by tapping twice on the back of the phone.

PROselfie front-facing camera aside, the Xperia C3 features Android 4.4 KitKat, a 5.5-inch 720p display, LTE, NFC, an 8MP rear camera, quad-core 1.2GHz Snapdragon processor, 1GB of RAM, and 8GB of expandable internal memory.

If you want to take a closer look at the new Sony Xperia C3, check out the hands-on photos included in the slideshow below. As we said, the photos come from China - the first market where the C3 will be available.

Later this year, HTC might also release a selfie-centric smartphone which could be called HTC Eye.

If it had 20mp front cam then it makes sense. Then it will be stand alone selfie phone. Because we already have 13mp front cam & Also wide angle lens,meh
