Sony has just teased a new Xperia smartphone on Twitter that is capable of capturing “split second photos”. The handset will arrive on 3rd August. The teaser hints that the highlighting feature of this new Xperia smartphone from the Japanese electronics giant will be its camera. The image shown in the teaser is very unique and compelling.

Since the camera seems to be he usp of the new device, we hope that it features Sony’s new Exmor RS IMX230 stacked image sensor that will offer better image capturing and performance. Motorola’s newly announced Moto X Style (Pure Edition) sports this sensor.

As for the new device that Sony is going to launch on August 3, if we are to hazard a guess, it could be the company’s upcoming Xperia C5 smartphone. Images and specifications of the phone have already leaked. The handset will sport a 5.5-inch screen with 1080p resolution and 2GB of RAM. It will be powered by a 64-bit octa-core MediaTek MT 6752 chipset.

The most important feature of Xperia C5 is its cameras. The device will have a 13MP rear camera as well as a 13MP front-facing camera making it a great phone for selfies. That is why we think that the new phone to be announced by Sony on August 3 may be the Xperia C5. Anyways, we will know soon enough in a couple of days.
