Would you want to take your smartphone along on a dive? If you would want to have your handset keep you company while you experience the splash of cool rejuvenating water on your face and body, here’s one device that wouldn’t mind some synchronous swimming too!

Sony has just outed one such charmer. Christened the Xperia ZR, this Sony baby comes close on the heels of the debut of the Xperia Z, which has already become a hugely popular rig.

The official announcement of the Xperia ZR has come about and that makes us wait for it to finally come unto us.

Just imagining deploying the ZR to capture some breathtaking underwater scenes! This simply makes us go crazy.


A deeper look at what Sony has made will bring to the fore the capability of the ZR to stay submerged in water for up to 30 minutes.

The handset has a  13-megapixel camera with Exmor RS sensor on the rear. This cam will have a dedicated button that would enable you to click all those under water pictures at will.
