Sony working on selfie centered smartphone or a compact camera?

Sony released Xperia C3, a selfie focused smartphone with 5MP camera in July. Today two different reports are suggesting that the company is making a selfie centered smartphone or a compact camera.

Firstly, digi-wo has posted a bunch of photos of the Sony device that has a camera situated at the top of the phone in the center. According to the photos, it will have a swivel camera that we have already seen on Oppo N1 and Gionee Elife E7 mini. The camera lens is encompassed in a transparent rectangular case over the top of the phone.

Meanwhile, report from Sonyalpharumors suggests that Sony is making a compact camera that is dubbed as KW1. Strangely, this camera also has the same exact specifications similar to the aforementioned selfie smartphone. Hence, it is not clear if Sony is making both the devices or is the compact camera the same device used on the selfie smartphone.
