The Sony Xperia ZR's claim to fame is its high water resistance property - said to be capable of capturing photos/images under water and record Full HD videos. The handset is also certified under the IP55 and IP58 standards, which gives the device natural resistance from water sprayed as low pressure jets. Like Sony's earlier Xperia Z (water-resistant) handset, the Xperia ZR is said to work fine even after being submerged under 1.5 metres of water.

The Xperia ZR features a 13 MP camera, 1.5 GHz quad-core processor, and 2 GB of RAM. Similar to the Xperia Z, this one runs Android 4.1 Jelly Bean as well.
