How often do you come across the term "selfie" in the present day context? We are guessing many a times since it's one of the newest fads to have hit the tech world in recent times. And hence we already have a few smartphones that just concentrate on the selfie aspect of a handset.
As you may know already, the basic concept of a selfie involves taking you own face shot (either alone or with friends) via the camera that's placed at the front of the handset. Needless to say, the trend has caught on with movie stars, football players and other similar personalities.
Sony had already detected a shift in pattern for the new concept in the handset market, and had accordingly revealed its new Xperia C3 selfie smartphone. And now you will be happy to know that the handset has been outed in the Indian market with a price tag of Rs. 23,990.
The new phone is currently set to be made available starting September 1 in black, white and mint color variants. And that's good news for all those looking toward a handset that will focus mostly on selfies.
But while the selfie phone is the concept that's expected to pick up in the recent future, what are the top reasons that should make you buy the C3 handset? We take a look at the top 5.
Sure phones anyway offer an LED flash in the rear to assist you in the dark. But the C3, as it's a selfie phone, offers a soft LED flash at the front for the front-facing snapper. The LED flash will create perfect shots whether you take them in daylight or at night. The flash is said to cast a soft even light across the whole image, capturing every detail with crystal clear precision.
HDR (High Dynamic Range), as you may already know, is an imaging technology that gives you clear photos against strong backlight. And with HDR for video, you can film in high contrast situations and get great footages.
The in-device camera on the Xperia C3 is built with the same modules as that of leading Sony cameras. The Exmor RS for mobile, according to Sony, is "an evolution of our Sony image sensor technology, with a next-generation BSI light sensor."
The C3 is the first Xperia smartphone to boast a Superior Auto for the front camera. So whether you have a strong backlight or want to capture a beautiful night scene, all the selfies will look professional with the Superior Auto mode.
The 5 MP front camera of the Xperia C3 features a 25 mm wide-angle lens with an 80 degree field of view. The aim here is to fit in even more of the view, and more friends in the shot.
