Microsoft To Launch A 'Selfie' Phone With A Front-Facing Camera

July 31, 2014 by Julia Welling

Microsoft is going to launch two new phones, and one is supposedly going to change our Instagrams, Snap Chats, and maybe even Tinder messages forever. Enter: the selfie phone. Yes, this is happening. According to Stephen Elop, the Microsoft Devices Chief, the selfie phone will feature a forward-facing camera and a 4.7 inch display that will make it even easier (like it was hard before) to post your duckface on the internet. Wait…hold up. Pause. Not so fast, Microsoft. Doesn’t the iPhone already have a camera in the front? Right…that’s what we thought. How else do you think Kylie Jenner, Ariana Grande, Kim K and Miley were taking their selfies this whole time? Come on, Microsoft, but you’re almost as late as my mom at picking up on this trend.

Just last week, my mom learned what a selfy (her spelling) was, and now I am legitimately concerned that she will abandon the iPhone and hop on the Microsoft bandwagon, just because this is the “hot new thing” and “all the kids are doing it these days.” I already get enough middle-aged woman “selfys” as it is. I can’t handle anymore, Microsoft. Not only are all of the celebs going to have this thing, (obvi because they’re obsessed with themselves), but parents (who want to torture their kids) and middle schoolers will probably have it too! Can’t these oldies and youngins just leave selfies alone? Can’t they just let the millennials do our own thing? Thanks Stephen. Look what you started.

And what could possibly be next? A phone designed for taking belfies? Or maybe there will be a phone designed for taking pictures of the food you didn’t eat? This is getting out of control. Do you think the selfie phone is the cool new thing or is it just a crazy iPhone spinoff? Let us know in the comments below.
