Similar to the Sony Xperia Z, the Xperia C has a rectangular build with a "Omni-Balance" design, according to Sony, which is focused on creating balance and symmetry in all directions. The Xperia C has subtle rounded edges and instead of a glass chassis, it features a soft-touch back cover that completely envelops the sides and back. Similar to Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc the back of the Xperia C slightly curved which tapers down to being thinner at the center.

Hardware

With dimensions of 141.5 x 74.2 x 8.9 mm, the Xperia C features a 5-inch TFT display which measures 960 by 540 pixels with a 220 ppi pixel density. The display of the device supports multi-touch up to 5 fingers and has Sony's anti-shatter film applied on the display which prevents the glass pieces of the display to fall out if the display is shattered. The phone also supports an 8 megapixels rear camera with Exmor R sensor which is capable of 4x digital zoom, auto-focus, face detection, Sweep Panorama, and is also capable of shooting videos in full-HD (1080p) mode. The device also has a 0.3-megapixel front facing VGA camera. The Xperia C comes with a quad-core MediaTek MTK6589 processor clocked at 1.2 GHz (making the Sony Xperia C the first Sony smartphone to be powered by a MediaTek SoC), PowerVR SGX544 GPU clocked at 286 MHz with 1 GB of RAM and 4GB of internal storage with a 1.2 GB user available and can be expand up to 32GB by microSD. The Sony Xperia C is also a dual SIM smartphone. The first SIM card slot which supports WCDMA network and cellular data while the second SIM card slot supports only 2G networks which is meant for a secondary or overseas SIM card.

Software

The Sony Xperia C runs on Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean with Sony's custom launcher with some notable additions to the software include FM radio with RDS and Sony's Media applications – Walkman, Album and Movies. The device does not support NFC which allows 'one touch' to mirror what is on the smartphone to compatible TVs or play music on a NFC wireless speaker. However, the phone does support Miracast screen mirroring. Additionally, the phone includes a battery stamina mode which increases the phone's standby time up to 4 times. Several Google applications (such as Google Chrome, Google Play, Google search (with voice), Google Maps and Hangouts) already come preloaded.

The Sony Xperia C was released in July 2013 with 3 colours available which are: Black, White and Purple. The Xperia C was launched in China with China Unicom, the only carrier in China to feature the Xperia C for now. However, a Sony representative said a version for other Asia markets may become available in the future. Since then Xperia C has been available to Indonesia, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Philippines, Malaysia, Russia, Thailand, and India. It is available on retail shelves in Saudi Arabia from December 11, 2013.

Kitkat update for Xperia C is still not officially available. Rumours are coming since Sony is not speaking out for this update on this device. It's very probable and also logical that Kitkat won't be available for Xperia C because of its 4 GB internal storage (since there is no option for moving apps to SD card in Kitkat). However, it might get android 4.3 as mentioned by one Indian Sony engineer. He also confirmed that Xperia C won't get Kitkat. It must be considered that it's not officially confirmed.
