The Sony Xperia ZR is now available in Malaysia with the retail price tag of RM1,649. To recap, the Xperia ZR is a waterproof smart phone which comes with IP55/IP58 dust and water resistant capabilities which lets you go underwater up to 1.5 metres for 30 minutes. As comparison, the IP57 rated Xperia Z is capable of going up to 1 metre for 30 minutes.

Recapping the specs, the Xperia ZR comes with a 4.55″ 720p display that does 1280×720 pixels resolution and runs on a rather high-end 1.5GHz quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro processor with 2GB of RAM. On-board there’s 8GB of storage which is expandable with microSD up to 32GB.

Since underwater photography and video shooting is its biggest highlight, the Xperia ZR packs a 13MP Exmor RS main camera which comes with a dedicated camera button. Having a dedicated camera button is crucial as the touch screen doesn’t function when submerged in our Xperia Z hands on.

In terms of colours, both black and white colours are listed on their online store. For more information, head over to Sony Malaysia’s Xperia ZR page.
