Xperia C4 ThumbSony has unveiled the Xperia C4 (E5303, E5306, E5353) and Xperia C4 Dual (E5333, E5343, E5363) selfie smartphone with soft front-facing flash. The phone is a follow-up to last year’s ‘PROselfie’ Xperia C3 (D25XX) which was the first Sony Xperia to feature a front-facing flash.

The Xperia C4 has a 5MP Exmor R front camera with 25mm wide-angle lens and a 13MP Exmor RS rear camera. The front camera has SteadyShot technology and AR mask, letting you add fun effects to your selfies.

In terms of specs, the Xperia C4 has a 5.5-inch (1080 x 1920 pixel) IPS display giving a pixel density of 401 PPI. Bezels are reasonably small too with a screen-to-phone ratio of 71.68%, putting it only behind the Xperia ZL and T2 Ultra.

The handset is powered by the Mediatek MT6752 chipset with 1.7 GHz octa-core ARM Cortex-A53 processor and Mali-T760 GPU. Other specs include 2GB RAM, 16GB internal storage (10GB available), microSD memory card support, NFC, Bluetooth 4.1 and a 2600mAh battery. The Xperia C4 has dimensions of 150.3 x 77.4 x 7.9 mm and weighs 147 grams.

The Xperia C4 and Xperia C4 Dual will launch in three colours (black, white and mint) at the beginning of June 2015. Sony only plans to launch the device in ‘select markets’ so don’t expect a global release. Much like the Xperia C3, we expect the Xperia C4 to be marketed heavily across Asia.

    Well they talk about E5303 that is worldwide outside Asia and E5306 that is for America because of the LTE BC4 the famous AWS network, so it should be sent in the whole world.

  • Joshua Phillis

    not bad specs

  • Andrew Erohin

    Why don’t they start producing selfie handguns?

  • Ben Ling
  • ssjdino

    5 inch displays are the largest I can handle, so I’m gonna go with M4 Aqua. Nice phone nonetheless.

  • shhh

    Z4, come out to playyyyyayyyy!

  • xperiaDROID

    Same old same old. They could’ve reduced the top bezels as well, but their “Sony” logo is too big. Not bad, but reused design from Xperia T3, C3 and Z just makes it look boring.

    Not into selfie phones anyways.

  • shhh

    Well they needed to fit the sensor on the top so it’s okay, at least the bottom bezel is not as large.

  • wim den boer

    It’s on the Dutch sony mobile site so I guess it will be available in the Netherlands

  • roeshak

    There are a lot of phones now with 8mp front shooters. 5mp is becoming the standard for normal flagships so you’d think Sony would have gone with a higher res front camera to call this a selfie phone lol.
    I suppose the fact that it’s got a lens probably makes it deserving of the selfie tag but I think they should have been aiming for 8mp nonetheless!

  • jag

    Not bad for the specs. But they should have upped the front camera.

  • Unknown

    i like the design, i wish m4 aqua has this design

  • Jaissal S

    Looks cool. So I imagine that the Z4/Z3+ will be announced within the next month. I’m looking forward to what Sony announce next with new design. My Z1 works great and will last throughout this year still.

  • Lovelesh Khatter

    When the xperia m4 aqua goes to launch

  • jacksnack

    prefer 5inch aswell, but i can do 5-5.5 aswell. i hope sony doesn’t fuck up with z5

  • jacksnack

    not sure if being flashed in ur face makes you look good but we will see

  • Emir Zarith

    but it got flash …that’s why Sony claims it is one the best selfie centric smartphone on market

    ohh wait what about Oppo N3 – the swivel camera

  • Vuyo Ncube

    A decent Lollipop budget phablet. Sony seems to be spacing out and pricing its phones a lot better than last year (1 midrange phablet, 1 midrange full size phone, 1 entry level phone). Price should be reasonably low too with Mediatek.

  • ShinOrochiX

    What’s the point of releasing devices so often, it hasn’t even been a year since the release of the C3. They market the M4 Aqua as a phone for taking selfies as well (wide angle lens). Not surprised the M2/Aqua hasn’t got Lollipop as of yet (probably won’t get it)-what they’re doing is no good, shelving decent phones within a year.

    I don’t like Sony any more, been using Xperia since the 2010 series and it has only gotten worse. It is no surprise they’re making losses, after all they’re following what they *think* the consumers want not what we actually want. Lets be honest most people want a serious all round phone-whether it be a flagship or midrange, not everyone is obsessed with taking selfies.

  • Luis

    Why not release globally. All these teenagers will eat this up.

  • laci_csk

    Very good specs for a midrange.
    The screen to body ratio is the same with T2 Ultra 71,7%.

  • Deckard_Cain

    Very nice specs for this phone. Hope it is reasonably priced as well. The M4 Aqua is too expensive for what it offers.

    2 day battery life can???

  • Dakota


  • Levered

    I think sony has sell only selected market because of MT6752. It’s just support world LTE Band 3,7 and 20 only, not included China LTE band.

  • Does Sony actually need to release a “selfie phone”?

    Also: Sony offers AOSP support for most devices. Call me when this one gets that… mediatek pls

  • Jesús López Sotelo

    here’s what I thought about that rumor:

  • ryq24

    Hope the camera have improve coz C3 back camera is a big disappointment.

  • Keion London

    So let me understand something, this comes with a 1080p display which is the same display as their current flagship right ? So z4 display should be considered average? At least they raised the bar for mid-range devices.

  • Svnjay

    They did a selfie perfume.

  • Svnjay

    We don’t know if it’s the same display panel but its the same resolution.

  • Svnjay

    The teenagers didn’t eat up the Facebook phone that Facebook and HTC released two years ago.

  • Naail Zahid

    You forgot HTC desire EYE. That’s the king of selfies for now :P

  • jacksnack

    htc and photos doesn’t go together

  • jacksnack

    mp isn’t all, especially for selfies where you only capture a face

  • jacksnack

    what kind of mona lisa is that in the pictures..?

  • Coolkid

    You mean that selfie cam with curved sensor…!!!???

  • Akshat Ahuja

    With a 1080p panel for Mediatek MT6752 & Mali gpu, this phone will lag in gaming.

    It also won’t get any updates ..maybe just 5.1 and then no more updates cuz its mediatek!
    and a 5.5 inch display but 2600mah battery… might not be enough too.
    They are no where advertising 2 day battery life!

  • Svnjay
  • XzZZ

    It has t760 MP2, better than adreno 405, and for cpu 6752 is better than snap 615 too.
    but yeah still weak for 1920×1080 resolution

  • Andrew Erohin

    Actually, I meant something like this:)

  • Geese Howard

    Does the girl come with it? I don’t mind doing a ‘selfie’ of my own with her >=)

  • Naail Zahid

    You’ve obviously never used the EYE…like ever. I have one, it beats the Xperia phones by a long mile. And I’m an avid sony fan (have the Z3 dual and the Z3 Tablet)

  • Fuad Nazal

    It’s just for selfies. 5 mpx is more than enough. The only thing matters here is the angle and the quality from sensor.

  • rzero21

    less Mpx in certain cases means better low light performance. Look at the Sony a7S and compare it with the Sony a99 or a7II

  • HAWX

    *Soft flash

  • HAWX

    I love the front looking. If battery was 3000+ I would have liked it quite much. Hope they reduce the bezzel (at least bottom one) in upcoming flagships as well.

  • Emir Zarith

    that phone not selling well tough….hard to see people using it in my country

    3 selfies devices ??
    Are you okay ??

  • Emil Oskarsson

    Thats just a picture of how it is to use internet explorer….

  • Emil Oskarsson

    Pretty much the same performance as my xperia z (a bit lower but not much) and my xperia z doesnt lag while gaming..

  • Emil Oskarsson

    Snapdragon s4 pro is better though…

  • Alvin Zahran Majid

    they are restructuring, they will not use S800, S615, or other high end processor this time for these kind of devices, Maybe they will,someday when they are getting success.

  • Alvin Zahran Majid

    I don’t know, but I didn’t feel good about that bottom bezel, I want it to be just as other Xperia phones, with a bit symmetrical top and bottom bezel. But this is also good, but it didn’t feel that right for me.

    I’ll choose either this or M4 Aqua, if they didn’t sell Z4/Z5/whatever they name it really soon.

  • Alvin Zahran Majid

    what’s the matter with you, mate?

  • Alvin Zahran Majid

    that’s because the teenagers could get facebook app and facebook home in their old and new devices, that’s why they don’t buy it, mate.

  • Alvin Zahran Majid

    even by looking at the name and render, without further searching, i could tell that P2 is horribly fake..-_- just look at the render, that is just a photoshopped Xperia S with some ‘twist’

  • Ryan Kumar Jassi

    Who said the render was real the device has only been rumored which means it can be fake it cannot maybe the name might be real but the specs and render could be fake doesn’t mean the device will never exist

  • Alvin Zahran Majid

    i still say that’s fake.

  • Ryan Kumar Jassi

    Lol OK that’s your opinion I was only letting people know about the rumor
