Sony Mobile Shows Off its New Waterproof Smartphone, Xperia Z1

Sony Mobile has shown off a new waterproof smartphone, the Xperia Z1 that will go on sale later this month.

The Xperia Z1 features Sony’s award-winning “G Lens” with a 27mm wide angle and bright F2.0 aperture, custom made large 1/2.3-type CMOS image sensor Exmor RS for mobile with 20.7 megapixel camera and a BIONZ for mobile image processing engine.


High shutter speeds and 3x clear image zoom also prevents shots from being blurred while enabling them to be captured at distance.

Xperia Z1 features the fully integrated Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor with 2.2 GHz quad-core CPU and LTE. The smartphone is also waterproof and dust resistant (IP55 & IP58).

Pricing is not known yet.
