Lumia 730 used in attempt to create 'world's largest selfie' in Bangladesh

An attempt to break the world's record for the 'largest selfie' picture was held today in Bangladesh, using Microsoft's Lumia 730 with Windows Phone 8.1 and its 5 megapixel wide angle front camera.

The actual picture was posted on the Microsoft Lumia Bangladesh Facebook page, which reports that it used the Lumia 730's front facing camera to take a picture of 1,151 people in an attempt to break the world's record of a selfie with the "most number of people with recognizable faces."

There's no word yet on if the Guinness World Records organization has confirmed that this event did in fact create the world's largest selfie, but it certainly is a fun way to help promote the Lumia 730. Do you think this record was in fact broken today?
