Selfie snappers will rejoice as Sony Mobile Communications (“Sony Mobile”) today introduces Xperia™ C3, the world’s best1 smartphone fully-optimised for selfies.

With more selfies being shot than ever before, Sony Mobile has designed the Xperia C3 with the passionate selfie taker in mind. Selfies continue to be a social phenomenon with the usage of the word skyrocketing over 17,000% since 2012. What’s more, the word “Selfie” is now officially recognised by the Oxford English dictionary and was announced “word of the year” in 2013. Nearly half of all adults have admitted to taking a selfie and 40 percent of people aged 18 to 34 taking a photo in the past week. image002 (3)

Xperia C3 also comes loaded with innovative camera apps to edit, create and share your photos. Superior Auto helps you take the perfect shot with both the front and rear cameras, while the Portrait Retouch gives you a real-time makeover to make sure you always look your best. You can see changes in real time, before capturing the shot to ensure a photogenic finish.

Xperia C3 is completely integrated with your Facebook and Twitter to let you upload your selfie faster than ever and share the moment instantly with your friends.
