Last week, T-Mobile began teasing an underwater smartphone with a video of someone taking video while submerged, and asked the world “what if your smartphone could do this.” With murmurings suggesting Sony’s Xperia Z would be landing on T-Mobile shelves for a while we immediately figured it was for that, and so it was. A sign-up page for the Xperia Z on T-Mobile has gone live.
The page doesn’t give us much more than a quick overview of some of its features, though we already have a full helping of official specs considering this phone has been making its rounds in other parts of the world for a bit of time now. The Xperia Z features a 5-inch 1080p display, Qualcomm’s quad-core 1.5GHz processor, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage, a 13.1 megapixel HD camera, a 2.2 megapixel front camera, Android 4.1.2 and more.
Its IP57 certification means it can be submerged in up to 3 feet of water for up to 30 minutes, which isn’t a bad deal if you’re the type who finds yourself in the situation where you’ll need to get your phone a bit wet from time to time. Go ahead and sign up to be notified if you’ve been looking forward to getting your hands on this phone. You can take care of that at T-Mobile’s website today.
