CES 2014: Sony Unveils Z1S Waterproof Smartphone
The Android 4.3 Jelly Bean handsets boasts of a 20.7 megapixel camera.
Sony expanded its high-end waterproof series with the announcement of Xperia Z1S. The smartphone comes with a 5-inch screen and sports a 20 megapixel camera. The Z1s has a physical button that can click underwater shots unlike the Xperia Z where it couldn't take photos or videos when it was wet. It can stay as deep as 4.5 feet underwater and for 30 minutes without any problem. Surprisingly, the phone lacks a front-facing snapper. So video calls and selfies are out of question. The new phone is packed with a variety of camera-related such as Info-Eye, Social Live, and AR Effect.
Using this feature, you can scan QR and UPC codes. Moreover, it can also detect books, and provide more information about it.
This preloaded app lets you live-stream the videos to Facebook as you record them. Your friends can watch these videos and comment on it in real-time.
