Sony Xperia ZR Lets Users Film Underwater
The Xperia ZR features the highest level of water-resistance for capturing photos and full HD videos up to 5 feet underwater.Electronics manufacturer Sony has been steadily launching its line of Xperia smartphones and tablets since the year began, and many of them have water-resistant designs, but with the launch of the Xperia ZR, the company is taking the technology to new heights--or depths, so to say. The Xperia ZR features the highest level of water-resistance for capturing photos and full HD videos--up to 5 feet underwater. The Android smartphone, also offers a 4.6-inch HD Reality display, 13 megapixel fast capture camera and Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro quad-core 1.5 GHz processor, and 4G Long Term Evolution (LTE) technology. Combined with its dedicated camera key, the waterproof capabilities let users shoot videos in full HD or snap pictures underwater. The phone is also dust-resistant and the camera key allows users to shoot even from a locked screen. Featuring Sony's "Exmor RS for mobile" image sensor with HDR (High Dynamic Range), when users want to capture action fast, they can just turn on burst mode to shoot an unlimited number of images at 15 frames per second. The handset also features Battery Stamina Mode which can help improve 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 display is powered by the company’s Mobile Bravia Engine 2 using the contrast enhancement technology expertise from Sony's range of Bravia TVs, which is combined with the OptiContrast panel that helps reduce reflections and provides clearer viewing, even in bright sunlight, and creates a seamlessly black surface when the phone is turned off.
