I admit I still have reservations about a purpose-built ‘selfie’ smartphone, but Sony seems to think it’s a good idea. With the Sony Xperia C3 launched last month, Sony took it a step further by posing a challenge to top personalities from six different countries. These personalities took selfie-taking to extreme, and the result of their endeavours? The #PROselfie collection.
Para-gliders, skateboarders, beach yoga enthusiasts, you name it – they took selfies to a whole new level with the new Xperia C3.
Eat my dust!
Malaysia’s very own extreme selfie advocate is none other than talented female drifter, Leona Chin. Leona is one of very few females in the motorsports arena, who constantly puts grown men to shame with her driving skills. You can follow her daring, rubber-burning #PROselfie adventures with the Xperia C3 at www.leonachin.com or www.instagram.com/leonachin.
Sony calls the Xperia C3 the ultimate smartphone for selfies – armed with a 5MP wide-angle front camera (25mm with 80-degree field of view) and a unique front soft flash.
The front camera has a Superior Auto mode that automatically adjusts pictures for suitable lighting conditions.
It also has an auto scene recognition function that works together with HDR and LED, ennsuring you always get the best selfies and selfie videos in any lighting condition.
That aside, built-in selfie camera apps enhance pictures further. Portrait Retouch allows real-time makeover to make sure every selfie is the best selfie.
The Xperia C3 is powered by a 1.2Ghz quad-core Snapdragon processor and packed with 1GB RAM, 8GB storage and a 5.5-inch 720p TRILUMINOUS Display for mobile. The lTE-enabled smartphone sports a 2,500mAh battery.
