Sony Xperia C3 Dual is a ‘selfie’ phone, out in India for Rs 23990

Sony India has rolled in with its highly anticipated Xperia C3 Dual smartphone which is being touted as a selfie-focused release. The handset is a mid-range one and it’s priced at Rs 23990 which is cheaper than the 5.3-inch Xperia T3 that’s selling at Rs 27990 with similar features.

What sets the Sony Xperia C3 Dual apart from the competition is that it offers an impressive front-facing snapper of 5MP. The lens used here is a wide-angle one of 25mm and it offers an 80-degree field of view. What’s more, there’s an LED flash which provides the much needed lighting when snapping up selfies in low-lit conditions.

Complementing the front sensor are various software enhancements such as the PROselfie cam and selfie apps. Also, the phone enables you to capture images by simply tapping on the back cover. At the said price, the device is sure to give the Oppo N1 Mini with a swivel camera some tough competition.
