T-Mobile posted a rather strange video to YouTube of a guy diving underwater while taking video, seemingly with a smartphone (as evidenced by the silly vertical camera angle which we wish would just die already). The video is titled “What if your smartphone could do this?” T-Mobile doesn’t actively advertise any devices they carry as having waterproof capabilities, so we can only imagine this is an upcoming smartphone we haven’t heard about yet.

It’s possible T-Mobile could be gearing up to launch the Sony Xperia Z. It’s not the only rugged, waterproof smartphone in the world, but Sony is the only manufacturer who emphasizes the ability to take photos and video underwater in their advertising.

Or maybe T-Mobile’s just trolling us and they really have no plans to carry the Xperia Z at all — who knows? We’re obviously paying attention, though, so whatever this turns out to be we’ll be right on top of it. Would you give the Xperia Z a shot if it made its way to Magenta?
