Sony announces new Xperia ZR, a smaller waterproof cousin of the Xperia Z

Sony, capitalizing on the massive success of their Xperia line, has today announced the new Xperia ZR. At 4.55 inches, the ZR will be bringing along a lot of the same internals as the Xperia Z, to include the waterproof capabilities – with a rating of IP5 and IP8. This rating makes the ZR ideal for underwater HD recording.

We’re also looking at a 1.5 GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro CPU – same family as the Xperia Z and ZL – as well as 2GB RAM, 8GB internal storage, and expandable memory with a MicroSD. Display-wise, we’re seeing a 4.55 inch 720p display, and a 13MP Sony Exmor RS camera with LED flash.

While the press release mentions LTE support, the official spec sheet from Sony only mentions HSPA+ – so, be aware that it may depend on your carrier and market. The bands mentioned for HSPA+ seem to point towards European and North American markets.
