The black Xperia ZR C5502 8GB Smartphone from Sony is IP55 and IP58 rated for dust resistance and waterproof protection. With the Xperia ZR, you'll be able to take pictures while fully submerged.

Please note that you must have all the ports on the Xperia ZR firmly closed and covered before placing in water.

The Xperia ZR features a 13.1-megapixel rear camera with the Exmor RS sensor for capturing high-quality photos. The Xperia ZR also supports High Dynamic Range (HDR), which captures the same image in different exposure levels and then fuses them together, resulting in a picture with natural colors. There is also a Superior Auto mode, where the Xperia ZR combines scene recognition with high-performance image processing technology so you'll be able to capture photos with automated optimal settings.

With support for GSM and HSPA+ cellular networks, the Xperia ZR also supports Bluetooth wireless technology and Wi-Fi networks for added connectivity.

The Xperia ZR features a 4.55" capacitive touchscreen that supports multi-touch gestures. Since the screen will see a lot of action, it is coated with a scratch-resistant finish. As for the display itself, it has a HD 1280 x 720 native resolution and a 16:9 aspect ratio, so you'll be able to watch HD 720p content without upscaling or letterboxing. The combination of the 720p resolution and the 4.55" screen provides 323 pixels per inch (ppi) and up to 16.7 million colors for a crystal clear and vibrant display.

Sony also removed a layer of air from the display of the Xperia ZR to bring the touch panel closer to the display. Known as the OptiContrast panel, the screen provides less reflection and clearer viewing, even in bright sunlight. The OptiContrast panel also provides a seamless black surface when the Xperia ZR is turned off. By eliminating the sensor layer and integrating the sensor on the lens increases the responsiveness of the touchscreen.

While the 720p display allows for high-definition video quality, the Xperia ZR also has Sony Mobile BRAVIA Engine 2 technology. Mobile BRAVIA Engine 2 provides an enhanced viewing experience by adding real-time contrast optimization, sharpness enhancement, color management, and noise reduction.

The Xperia ZR also features One-touch functions from Sony with Near Field Communication (NFC) technology. One-touch sharing allows you to share media files with another NFC-enabled smartphone, tablet, or laptop by simply tapping the devices together. One-touch mirroring allows you to view photos and videos on your NFC-enabled Sony BRAVIA HDTV. To activate one-touch mirroring, simply tap your Xperia ZR to the BRAVIA remote. One-touch listening lets you play music wirelessly to Bluetooth speakers while one-touch backup stores all your important information on the Sony Personal Content Station (sold separately).

The Xperia ZR has a quad-core 1.5 GHz Qualcomm Krait processor and 2GB of RAM for fast, reliable performance. The Xperia ZR also has 8GB of internal storage, but it can also be expanded up to 32GB, thanks to the microSDHC media card slot.
