Sony Xperia C - 5" qHD Quadcore Mobile

Sony mobiles have announced the Sony Xperia C dual sim handset with the MediaTek chipset.  It will sport a 5 inch screen with qHD resolution and 8MP camera with EXMOR R Sensors. All of us know Mediatek chipsets are most affordable and on the top list now a days. Along with the good performance, they also reduce costing, which finally proves a boon for end users. Its having MT6589 chipset. Housed 8MP camera can record full HD videos.Specifications chart is out but finally it will be the price tag that will decide its market response. Being having MediaTek chipset, its going to be cheapest quad core in the Sony family.

Features and Specifications
Dual SIM.
1.2GHz quad core Mediatek

Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean.
5 inch TFT screen with 960×540 pixels resolution. (220 ppi)

It is expected to be available  in Indian market in the second half of September. And the expected price is around 16K INR. Now it would be very interesting to see that what is the difference in product crafted by a strong brand SONY as compared to the similar product by players like Micromax, Lava, etc. Also interesting to watch that how it would bear the heat of emerging brand GIONEE. If it is priced near 15K INR, one thing is for sure that it would further add a fuel to already existing price-war in mobile phones segment. Ultimately consumer is going to be benefited.

  2. Hi Fransis, i didn't get where to ask for a general query so i am asking in this post. Can you tell me the best phone to buy under 5000 range.

    1. No prob bro wherevever u have posted your query.

      Karbonn Smart A2+ is a good buy under 5k. Its having android 4.0 with 4 inch display. Decent looks. 1GHz processor, 512 mb RAM, 3mp camera. Price should be around 4K.

      I would also advise u to check yiur local mobile store for other brands also because every day many models are launched silently in already existing product matrix.
