Microsoft gives employees sneak peek at new ‘selfie’ phone

Stephen Elop, executive vice president of Microsoft’s devices and services division, gave a sneak peek at its new “selfie” phone featuring a 5 megapixel front camera at an internal meeting this week, Reuters reported, citing a company source.

The former Nokia chief executive showed off the phone in front of thousands at the company’s annual employee meeting in Seattle, Washington on Monday, the report said.

The “selfie” phone and another high-end Windows Phone are expected to launch soon, the wire agency said, citing a report by tech news website The Verge.

It is more powerful than Apple Inc.’s iPhone 5, which has a 1.2 megapixel front camera, and its screen, at 4.7 inches (11.9 cm), is larger, making it better-suited for users who want to take pictures of themselves, the report said.
