Xperia ZR pushes the boundaries on where and how consumers can use the full potential of their smartphone

Sony today announced the new Xperia ZR featuring the highest level of water-resistance for capturing photos and Full HD videos underwater. This Android smartphone offers leading technology and content with a 4.6” HD Reality display, 13 megapixel fast capture camera, Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ S4 Pro quad-core 1.5 GHz processor, and 4G LTE. Enjoy entertainment on the go with the super-sharp 4.6” HD Reality Display powered by Mobile Bravia Engine 2. The beautifully designed OptiContrast panel delivers a beautiful high quality viewing experience. The OptiContrast panel reduces reflections and provides clearer viewing, even in bright sunlight, and creates a seamlessly black surface when the phone is turned off. By eliminating the sensor layer and integrating the sensor on the lens, responsiveness of the screen is increased, so now your touch is both more effective and more intuitive.

Xperia ZR with its sleek, yet durable design is your perfect companion in and out of the water. As well as being dust-resistant, this waterproof phone is IP55 and IP58 compliant, so you can keep it submerged in 1.5 meters of fresh water for up to 30 minutes. Featuring Sony’s Exmor RS for mobile image sensor with HDR (High Dynamic Range) for both photos and videos, the Xperia ZR captures perfect pictures and videos, no matter what the conditions. To capture action fast, simply turn on burst mode to shoot an unlimited number of images at 15 frames per second.
The Walkman, Album and Movies applications enable discovery of online and offline content through a single access point with new ways to enjoy and share that content. One-touch functions let you easily share music, photos and videos from your smartphone to the widest range NFC-enabled Sony devices, including speakers, headphones and TVs. Xperia ZR also features Battery STAMINA Mode which significantly improves the standby time of the smartphone by four times or more by automatically shutting down battery-draining apps whenever the screen is off and starting them up again when the screen is back on. The Xperia ZR will launch in various global markets from Q2 2013 (availability will vary by market).
