Sony may not be making a lot of money in the smartphone business. But the company is still cranking out new models. A few weeks ago the company unveiled the Sony Xperia Z4 high-end smartphone. Now Sony is updating its mid-range Xperia C series.
Like last year’s Xperia C3, the new Sony Xperia C4 is a “selfie smartphone” thanks to a relatively high-quality 5MP front-facing camera. But the new model has a higher resolution display, twice as much memory and storage, and a few other improvements.
The Sony Xperia C4 features a 5.5 inch, 1920 x 1080 pixel display, a MediaTek MTK6752 octa-core, 64-bit processor, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of storage, and a microSd card slot.
It features WiFi, Bluetooth, NFC, 4G LTE (in some markets), and the phone sports a 2600 mAh battery. It runs Google Android 5.0 Lollipop software.
Overall, it has the specs of a decent mid-range phone. But Sony hopes the phone’s cameras will help it stand out.
There’s a 13MP rear camera and a 5MP front-facing camera. The front camera has a 25mm wide-angle lens, an LED flash, and support for HDR photos.
Sony also includes a versatile camera app and a offers a camera add-on API that lets third-party developers create apps that can be integrated with the default camera app.
Sony says the Xperia C4 will be available in select markets this June. It’ll be available in dual SIM or single SIM variants.
