A couple of images of the unannounced selfie-centric Sony Xperia Cosmos had been leaked earlier this month on Twitter by the famed leakster @upleaks. At the time, it was assumed to be the successor to Sony Xperia C3 because of its large selfie camera in the front with LED flash.
Sony Xperia C3 ‘PROselfie’ phone released last year is the first and only Sony smartphone to have a front-facing 5MP camera with LED flash. It looks like the assumption was correct. @upleaks has now posted in its twitter account that Sony Xperia Cosmos will be launched in the market as Sony Xperia C4.
Confirmed：Sony Cosmos will be going to the market as Xperia C4.

Not much is known about this new Xperia Cosmos/ Xperia C4 phone except that it will be powered by a MediaTek processor and will run Android 5.0 lollipop out of the box topped with Sony’s lightweight custom UI. As mentioned earlier, it is a selfie-centric phone with a big front- facing camera having LED flash. However, it is not known if it will be a 5MP snapper like its predecessor, the Xperia C3, or a more powerful one.
The Xperia C4 will also probably be a mid-range device like the C3 and may have 4G LTE support. Sony hasn’t disclosed any information about the device but as the Xperia C3 was launched in July last year, the new Xperia C4 may also be unveiled this year somewhere around that time.
We will let you know as soon as we hear anything new. Stay with us.
