Sony Mobile have been coming on leaps and bounds with devices like the Xperia Z & SP and it seems that there is no stopping them with more and more devices like the Xperia L and the ZR being announced.
Initial thoughts would be that the ZR is an upgrade to the Xperia Z.
HOWEVER, fear not all Xperia Z owners, your device is not yet ‘old’ or ‘out of date’.
The ZR is actually a slightly smaller device with 4.55”display and a bigger battery. It also has a slightly different rating of IP55 & IP58 as opposed to the Xperia Z IP55 & 57.
We can however confirm that there are no plans for the ZR to arrive in the UK, so if you think this is the device for you then you need to source elsewhere or opt for the Xperia Z instead.
