Waterproof cameras are becoming commonplace. Waterproof high-end smartphones, not so much.
For those who want to dunk their expensive electronics to capture some HD video underwater, Sony is offering the Xperia ZR “featuring the highest level of water-resistance,” the company says. “By combining Sony’s leading camera technology with the highest level of water-resistance, you will never miss another moment.”
The Android smartphone has a 13-megapixel camera and 4.6-inch display. It can be submerged 1.5 meters in fresh water for 30 minutes. Pricing was not announced.
