Sony Announces Fully-waterproof Xperia ZR, Shoots Cool Underwater Promo Clip to Go With It

0_Xperia_ZR_Group_Black

Sony announced the Xperia ZR this morning, a waterproof phone that can be submerged in water for up to 30 minutes, so that you can shoot 1080p video and capture amazing stills under water. You know, because you do such a thing so often. No? Well, it also has a 4.6″ 720p display, 1.5GHz Snapdragon S4 Pro processor, 2GB RAM, and 13MP camera that should help you power through most smartphone tasks that do not involve water.

The ZR will come in black, white, pink and mint, and be available in random markets that you probably do not live in, some time starting in Q2. I say that because that’s how all of Sony’s launches work. Even if the phone looks amazing, like the ZL, they can’t get it anywhere near the states except in an unlocked capacity that will run you $700+.

Oh, in terms of being waterproof, the ZR is IP55 and IP58 compliant. That’s really all there is to say about this phone. Now, go watch the neat promo videos below.
