Back in May, Sony Mobiles went on to announce another waterproof smartphone called the Sony Xperia ZR which doesn’t arrive with a full-HD 5 inch display as on the Sony Xperia Z but packs a decent 4.55 inch HD Reality Display with Mobile BRAVIA Engine 2. And today, the Sony Xperia ZR is up on pre-order in India for about Rs.29,990 which seems to be decent price tag for people who are for some reason not able to buy the Sony Xperia Z. Apart from the 4.55 inch HD display, the Sony Xperia ZR is powered by a 1.5 GHz quad-core processor which is complemented with 2 GB of RAM while the internal storage is pegged at 8 GB which is expandable using a microSD card slot up to 32 GB.
Sony has included a 13 megapixel rear camera with Exnor RS sensor and LED Flash and a VGA front camera will take care of all your video call needs. The smartphone measures 131 x 67.4 x 10.4 mm and weighs about 140 grams. Android 4.1 Jelly Bean OS runs the Sony Xperia ZR and the smartphone arrives with IP55 and IP58 Ingress rating making it dust and water proof and thus saving the device from accidental spills. Also, the Sony Xperia ZR is capable of taking pictures and full-HD videos for up to 30 mins under 1.5 metres of water. Connectivitywise, the Xperia ZR includes the usual 2G, 3G, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, DLNA, 3.5mm audio jack, A-GPS, NFC and microUSB. According to the listing, a 2300 mAh battery will power the device which is huge enough to keep it running all day long.
The Sony Xperia ZR is estimated to launch on June 15th and will be available in White, Black and Pink colour options for prospective buyers from Infibeam.
