Sony Xperia Z Survives Drop and Water Resistance Tests

Sony's next flagship smartphone features a 5-inch full HD screen

Last week, Sony Mobile unveiled to the world its next flagship Android-based smartphone, the Xperia Z, which managed to attract everybody at the 2013 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.

In addition to high-end hardware specifications, the new mobile phone was also toughened to resist dust and water, and to be protected from scratches and accidental drops.

Right on the floor at CES 2013, the device got tested for its said resistance, and it appears to have performed pretty well.

You can have a look at the tests in the video embedded above, available courtesy of Polish mobile tech blog Komorkomania.

Xperia Z was made official with a large 5-inch full HD screen, a quad-core processor inside, and a 13-megapixel photo snapper on the back. It runs under Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, but will be upgraded to Android 4.2 soon.
