Sony Xperia C3 embraces the selfie trend with 5MP front camera and LED flash

Sony has found a way to cash in on the selfie trend by offering its Xperia C3 smartphone which comes loaded with a 5MP front-facing camera and an LED flash. The device is also being touted with various preloaded features so that you can ‘create and share the best selfies.’

The front snapper on the Sony Xperia C3 futures a wide-angle lens of 25mm and it has an 80 degree field of view. This will allow you to get more of the surroundings or fit extra faces into the flame. Also, the soft LED flash works to deliver well-lit images under different lighting. To make the device all the more attractive, the company has thrown in various smart camera apps.
