New “Xperia Cosmos” selfie phone leaks with front-facing flash

by XB on 14th March 2015

in Rumours, Xperia C4

Xperia Cosmos_1It appears that Sony Mobile may be looking to launch a successor to the Xperia C3, which had a 5MP front-facing camera and front-facing flash – the only Xperia device so far to sport one. A new phone has leaked by tipster @upleaks that shows what looks like a mid-range device with large front-facing camera and front LED flash.

Within the settings the phone is dubbed the “Xperia Cosmos”, however since anyone can change the name of their Bluetooth device, we won’t read too much into this. The phone has a relatively small bezel and is running Android Lollipop. The Xperia C3 saw a very limited regional release, mainly targeted to the Asian markets. Would you like to see a wider launch for this selfie phone, assuming Sony does launch it?

Thanks Rammstone!

  • LancerEX

    I’d prefer a better camera software though..

  • Rock Kickass

    Nice to hear, but still waiting for the Z4 :p

  • Mike Gonzalez

    nice to see the bottom bezel is being reduced over time, in 2 years we will have small bezel up top too

  • (C):stem

    Another midrange phone stuck in one Android version?

  • Chaturanaga Manchanayake

    Same thought came to my head too.arrgh not gonna learn from their mistakes

  • DrazenDodig

    those bezels are tiny,. especially bottom one.

  • wared

    I hope the z4 will come with this bottom bezel at least

  • Shaik Farooq

    Me next week after getting lollipop hopefully..!!!

  • -Simone-

    When we receive Android 5.0.2 should expect Android 5.1.LOL
    Endless waiting

  • so where

    It must be fun burning cash.

  • roeshak

    Top bezel is massive though. Looks rather uneven!

  • Timel

    Galaxy S6 edge is much better!

  • wared

    It won’t be a bad idea if sony put a front flash in the z4

  • Uchiha Dare Nial

    Xperia Cosmos sounds like name of Ultraman Cosmos though

  • sony

    iphone 6 is much better than s6 edge &s6

  • SC

    lol no. stop lying to yourself

  • SC

    big forehead small chin

  • DrazenDodig

    looks on pic, but when i compare it to my Z3, top bezel is also considerably smaller than Z3. Big sensor, flash and speaker up there. Lets hope Z4 is similar.

  • DooMLoRD

    oh nice new Xperia phone with Lollipop!

  • sony

    oh no it’s a truth stop trolling

  • SC

    how is it better when the specs are worse in almost every way?

  • mc

    Walkman app is here, not Music ^^

  • Afnan Muhammad

    I hope that Z4 will have 5mp front camera with led flash.

  • Guest

    Stop being an ignorant fanboy. Specs doesn’t mean shit. Sony has their strengths and weaknesses, just like the S6.

  • SC

    If that’s the case you must be using an outdated phone. Specs do mean something, it means advancement. Sorry you are stuck in the past. Technology moves forward with better specs. You prefer Sony to be stuck with a Snapdragon 801 when everyone else is on 820? I don’t think so. Sony has better specs in battery, don’t tell you don’t prefer that. Think before you speak.

  • Ryan Kumar-jassi

    One plus one has 5mp front but no flash hopefully z4 will rival this with flash and maybe a possible 8mp front

  • sony

    spec ?! i think spec is not important… functionality is important ;) if u think a little u will realize why iphone 6 is better than s6

  • SC

    Then you are only referring to the operating system which is simply preference in taste which is completely subjective. S6 objectively has a better screen, better cameras, wireless charging capability, better sensors, more ram and a more advanced cpu. Both equal on battery life. All of this is expected as the S6 is a newer phone with newer technology. The rest is simply reasons why android is better than iOS. Why don’t you explain your reasoning?

  • spatch72

    Stop, Sony. JUST. STOP.

  • Vuyo Ncube

    If it comes with at least a MT6752 SoC at under $250, I’ll forgive the huge top bezel with the gigantic camera ring. Even better, if Mediatek fit a low power Radeon-class GPU from their new friend AMD in their SoC!

  • Dickson

    Xperia Z4 Dimension 147mm x 73.6mm x 6.4mm
    Weight 140 gram

  • YeahRight

    Now even you can give yourself redeye while taking photos of your ugly self!

  • Dickson

    Xperia Z4 Coming Soon In Mid March with Specification in SonyMobile

  • Jeff Martinez

    Edge S6/S6 >>> iPhone (insert any version here)

  • Danny

    I hope so too, if even the M4 Aqua is getting 5 MP front facing camera, Z4 should at least get the same.

  • jep

    Dont mind brainless fanboy.every brand has it own strength and weakness.i own s5..i admire it z3 is a beauty and premium look and never failed me for it battery..

  • Harsa Rizano

    hope will be a superior than another competitor with 8 MP front facing camera + LED flash and Wide angle

  • Battal Aljadei

    What’s the point while Sony camera quality is a crap,
    Sony care about the outside and skip the inside !

  • Winter Soldier

    will Lollipop release tomorrow?

  • Timel

    Yes!!!! iOS is much better than Lagdroid

  • Timel

    However, S6 edge and iPhone 6 are much better than Z4

  • I thought Sony’s new strategy was one entry level(E), one mid Range (M) and one high end(z), one high end compact(ZC).
    Why this then ?
    Will sony never learn?

  • Shinchan Crayon


    KOREAN CRAP SUIT YOU, An IDIOT worth an idiot inside glossy fragile gadget……

    yeah Galaxy models are for kids and adults (with kids brain) look at your samples above :D

  • jxPerience

    – 12mp above RC
    – 1.5GB up RAM
    – 16GB up internal memory
    – Dual Speaker
    – Water Proof
    – Slim Design with small bezels
    – Aluminum body (xperia ion, xperia p)
    – Snapdragon 615 and up

  • Omarion07

    Sony never said they’ll adopt such strategy. All they said was that they’ll release less phones and focus on premium.

  • Omarion07

    Where do you get your news from?? Aren’t we already in mid March?

  • Zidhin Mohd

    A leak showed its the same as z3

  • Amir

    Info coming from your ass does not count.

  • tmnd

    reading so many issues with Lolipop … I am not sure should I wait longer for 5.1 instead … :-/

  • RealityCheck2015

    LESS bezel the BETTER :P

  • Guest

    ???get $69 /hr@aa29:



    you Can Find Out


  • Snorky112

    when they decide a new strategy, they still need to release the phone they had prepared, like when SonyEricsson became sony, their plan was to make omnibalance Z with the signature powerbutton, but this came oneyear later, they still needed to release xperia NXT Series before, because they had prepared them

  • Maxx Tan

    Your life after buying this phone : Buys a non-Z series Xperia > Expects update from Sony > Get none > Complain > Still get none > Continues to complain > Sees a new line of non-Z series Xperia launched > Repeat step 1

  • sony

    in ur dream :))

  • Confruggy

    i want small top bezel, not small bottom bezel

  • Paolo Malgarise

    C4 or T4 ??? big screen hd definition mediatek 6752…

  • Ritwij

    Yeah, now Sony is concentrating on mid rangers with Lollipop instead of their flagships

  • Ritwij

    Z4 is not going to rival OnePlus One because it will be atleast twice the price

  • Fadi Obaya


  • bobeobi gzigzigzeo

    And here we see Lollipop with usual Sony WiFi/Signal icons instead of stock in earlier videos. Good

  • Zaid

    I have learned my lesson FLAGSHIP AND ONLY FLAGSHIP from Sony

    Fuck man, first we have Timel and Chuck Norris, now we have somebody who is dubbed as sony but is a complete retard…

  • Confruggy

    That’s because the software on this screenshot is probably older. For example look at the album app. It also has the old album app and not the newer one we already got.

  • [S]unjay

    Nice bezels but Sony is releasing too many phones. This should’ve been the M4 Aqua.

  • [S]unjay

    Lets hope the Z4 will be like the ZL which has smaller bezels than the LG G3.

    Considering the Z4 hasn’t been announced, I’d say that’s a bit of a stretch.
