Sony fans don’t have to wait much longer for their new future smartphones to arrive on the market. Z3+ in particular looks very promising as it’s the first ever waterproof phone.
The company finally announced that Sony Experia Z4 and Sony Experia Z3+ will be available to purchase later this summer, starting with June.
While Sony Experia Z4 may or may not necessarily be much to talk about when compared to other devices available on the market right now, Sony Experia Z3+ is an entirely different story. It’s the world’s first waterproof smartphone ever.
The promo ad absolutely uses this exact feature as the product’s unique selling proposition. The video starts with a young man running through the woods. He stumbles upon a lot of fireflies, pulls out his phone and claims that the Sony Experia Z3+ takes great photos in low light. So far nothing special, plenty of other smartphones promise the exact same thing.
But in the very next scene a young woman and her friends jump in the water, and she takes her phone with her, claiming that the phone’s video camera offers extraordinary quality. However, while she does not mention it verbally, what stays with you is that she jumped into the water with her phone. There are only two possible explanations here – either she’s out of her mind, or the phone is somehow waterproof.
The confirmation that it is indeed waterproof comes in the third character’s story. A man walks towards the screen, heavy rain starts pouring down, and of all the things that he could have done, he pulls out his Sony Experia Z3+ in order to capture the beauty of the moment. The phone is not protected inside some kind of transparent plastic, or held under an umbrella.
We see dozens of water drops hitting the phone and jumping off of it. The man does not look worried at all. At one point water drops even crash straight onto the camera – it’s a beautiful visuals, but one that should normally have you worried. Then an English spokesman informs us that the Experia Z3+ is a “premium waterproof design”.
Mukesh Srivastava, head at product marketing , gave a statement saying that “We are looking to reach the top in this price segment with our new releases and in the future Sony will release many more products”.
Another feature you should be excited about if it does end up being true longterm – Sony brag that the Experia Z3+ has a 2,900 mAh battery that can last up to two (2) whole days.
The device also benefits from 3GB of RAM, 32 GM internal memory, a 20.7MP rear camera with a 25mm wide-angle lens and autofocus, 5 MP front camera, a Snapdragon 810 octa-core processor supporting 64-bit OS, and a 5.2-inch display with 1080 x 1920 pixel resolution.
Design wise, the Sony Experia Z3+ will be available in four (4) popular colors – black, white, copper, and aqua.
