Sony has unveiled an updated version of its flagship smartphone, Xperia Z1, that will launch later this month called the Xperia Z1S. What is interesting is that the device has an IP58 resistance rating, which means it is completely “waterproof” — not just “water-resistant” — and it can be submerged for extended periods of time without issue.
Other key Xperia Z1 specs include a 2.2GHz quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor, a 3,000mAh battery, a 5-inch full HD “Triluminous” Sony display, a 20.7-megapixel camera and Android 4.3 Jelly Bean.
“As a waterproof smartphone complete with the best of Sony’s technology, Xperia Z1s breaks the mold of not only what you can do with a smartphone, but where you can take it,” said Sony’s Ravi Nookala.
The Xperia Z1S hits select markets later this month. There’s no word on when it will come to India.
