Z2 smartphone and tablet will launch in March

Sony has unveiled a couple new products at Mobile World Congress 2014 in Barcelona, Spain. The first of these new products is the Xperia Z2 smartphone. Sony says that the device is a “premium” waterproof (IPX5/IPX8) smartphone that will launch globally next month.
 
The biggest news is that the smartphone has a 20.7MP Exmor RS mobile CMOS image sensor, which is capable of shooting video in 4K resolution. Other features include SteadyShot image stabilization and the ability to shoot video in 120 fps for slow motion playback. 

 
The 5.2-inch screen has full HD resolution and uses TRILUMINOS tech for richer colors.
 
The Xperia Z2 uses a Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor running at 2.3GHz and of course supports 4G LTE. Power comes from a 3200mAh internal battery. Thankfully, the Xperia Z2 will come out of the box running Android 4.4 KitKat.
 
The waterproof Xperia Z2 Tablet has a 10.1-inch TFT display with a full HD display. The tablet has an 8.1MP rear camera and a 2.2MP front-facing camera.

 
The Xperia Z2 Tablet also runs Android 4.4 KitKat, and it uses a quad-core 2.3 GHz Qualcomm APQ8074 processor.
 
Pricing is not yet available for either device.

1/2 cool

A friend who used to have a waterproof, shockproof Casio switched to another mfr and that proved not to be waterproof. Next up was a waterproof Sony but the first problem is it's not shockproof. Great for rainy usage, not so great for trekking. Second problem is, at least in Japan, people can take these things to public baths and photo/video people.

That is only a problem if people object to being filmed. It isn't like you could pull a phone out without people seeing it.
