The black Xperia Z1 C6902 16GB Smartphone from Sony is IP55 and IP58 rated for dust resistance and waterproof protection. With the Xperia Z1, you'll be able to take pictures while fully submerged.
Please note that you must have all the ports on the Xperia Z1 firmly closed and covered before placing in water.
The Xperia Z1 features a high 20.7-megapixel rear camera with an Exmor RS sensor. The Xperia Z1 also utilizes a Sony G Lens and the intelligent BIONZ mobile image processing engine for capturing high quality photos. The Xperia Z1 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 Z1 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 cellular networks, the Xperia Z1 also supports Bluetooth wireless technology and Wi-Fi networks for added connectivity.
The Xperia Z1 features a 5" capacitive touchscreen that supports multi-touch gestures. As for the TRILUMINOS display itself, it has a Full HD 1920 x 1080 native resolution and a 16:9 aspect ratio, so you'll be able to watch Full HD 1080p content without upscaling or letterboxing. The combination of the 1080p resolution and the 5" screen lead to a 441 pixels per inch (ppi) pixel density, meaning you'll need a magnifying glass to distinguish the individual pixels.
The Xperia Z1 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 Z1 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).
