As most of you know, Sony Mobile hasn’t been doing all that well as smartphone sales profit goes. This Japan-based company has been having issues turning a profit for quite some time now, and they even decided to leave Chinese smartphone market altogether a while back. Sony is quite active in India though, the company is constantly pushing their devices to that market, mainly the company’s mid-range offerings. Sony has launched the Xperia M4 Aqua Dual in India today, and now they’ve announced yet another handset for the Indian market.
The company has announced that the Xperia C4 Dual mid-ranger, also called the ‘selfie phone’, will be available in the country starting mid-June. The Xperia C4 Dual sports a 5.5-inch 1080p (1920 x 1080) display with Mobile BRAVIA Engine 2 along with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of built-in storage (expandable up to 128GB via microSD card). This handset is powered by MediaTek’s MT6752 octa-core SoC running at 1.7GHz which ship with a Mali 760 MP2 GPU for graphics. The 13-megapixel snapper is located on the back of this device (Exmor RS sensor), and an LED flash is also available next to the camera. The front-facing 5-megapixel snapper is available here for your selfies and video calls, and we’re looking at Sony’s Exmor R sensor here (25mm wide-angle lens), which offers 1080p video recording. The 2,600mAh battery is also a part of this package, and this handset ships with two SIM card slots. 4G LTE connectivity (Bands 1, 3, 7, 8, 28, 40) is also available here, while the handset measures 150.3 x 77.4 x 7.9mm and weighs 147 grams. Android 5.0 Lollipop comes pre-installed on this handset with Sony’s custom UI installed on top of it.
The Sony Xperia C4 Dual will be available in Black, White and Mint color options in mid-June, when the device will be available for purchase in India. Sony still didn’t say how much this handset will cost, we’ll let you know as soon as they do (probably next month prior to launch).
