Sony announces Xperia C4 with wide-angle selfie camera and octa-core CPU

Sony today unveiled a new addition to its midrange smartphone lineup in the Xperia C4, a device designed for selfie-snappers with a wide-angle front-facing camera. The device also offers a large 5.5-inch display and a speedy octa-core processor.

While it may be a midrange device that won’t impress quite as much as Sony’s upcoming Xperia Z4, the Xperia C4 is packing some excellent specifications and an attractive design that make it a compelling smartphone that ticks almost all of the right boxes.

In addition to its 5.5-inch 1080p display — which uses Sony’s Bravia imaging technologies — the Xperia C4 offers a 1.7GHz octa-core processor, Mali-T760 graphics, 2GB of RAM, and a 2,600mAh battery.┬áLike all Sony smartphones, however, the Xperia C4’s best selling points are its cameras.

On the back of the device, there’s a 13-megapixel shooter that boasts HDR, while on the front you’ll find a large 5-megapixel Exmor R sensor with a wide-angle lens and “soft” LED flash, and SteadyShot technology.

The Xperia C4 is made out of glass and aluminum, and it looks terrific. But unlike a lot of its siblings, it is not dust- or water-resistant, and that’s a little disappointing given that ┬áthis is one of the best reasons to buy a modern Xperia smartphone over the competition.

Even without that, however, the Xperia C4 looks to be a great midrange device. It will be available in single and dual-SIM variants from the beginning of June in white, black, and “vibrant mint.” Sony hasn’t yet confirmed the handset’s price tag.
