While the Sony Xperia Z was launched by the company back in February last year, the related ZL and ZR smartphones had followed in the subsequent months. All these phones came equipped with water and dust proofing capabilities which were their selling points during launch.

An 8MP rear camera and a 2MP front one enhance its offerings furthermore.
