Do you often feel like taking a selfie shot? There’s a new phone you might find appealing—the Sony Xperia C3—which has been optimized with a powerful front-facing camera. And it has its own LED flash, too!

To support its claim as the “world’s best selfie smartphone,” the Sony Xperia C3 sports a 25mm wide-angle front camera called the “PROselfie cam” with up to 5-megapixel resolution, a soft LED flash, and Superior Auto mode. If the aforementioned shooting mode somehow fails to produce the perfect photo, the phone comes with software enhancements for adding filters, retouches, and other effects. Beyond still images, the front camera is also capable of making crispy clear video calls and recording 720p videos.

But enough about the front camera, as there are more to the Sony Xperia C3 than selfie shots. For those without the exaggerated ego, the phone also comes with a rear-facing 8MP shooter that’s powered by Sony’s powerful Exmore RS image sensor. Equipped with Android 4.4 KitKat, the Xperia C3 has a Snapdragon 400 processor running under its hood, accompanied by 1GB or RAM, Adreno 305 graphics, and 8GB of internal storage.
