Ever since the launch of the Sony Xperia Z, the company has dared the odds of what a water resistant smartphone should look like. At times when the only thing that was water resistant looked like a tank, Sony showed us that there are smarter ways to bring water resistance to the masses. The company continues to push that bar today with is Xperia offerings, and with its recent teaser for IFA 2014, things seem to just get better.
We know that the company is planning to announce its Xperia Z3 and Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact at IFA 2014. If you’re wondering how the company plans to differentiate these products from others that already exist in this crowded smartphone and tablet market, it seems that water resistance will be the name of the game. Sony has just teased a photo on its Twitter account, and it seems the company is planning to make its IFA offerings resistant to as much as 2 meters (6.56 feet) of submersion under water.
We have noticed that Sony is adding some extra curves to the Xperia Z3, and these could serve the purpose of making the device more resistant to water, though it’s hard to predict. If you’re wondering why you should even care about owning a smartphone that you can submerge this deep, well, try dropping it in a pool by accident.
