Can Xperia Z4 Tablet float ? Sony did an experiment!

Sony launched Xperia Z4 Tablet at MWC 2015 with 10.1″ 2K display (2560×1600 resolution) powered by ultra fast Snapdragon 810 Octa-Core 64 bit processor, weighing only (389g Wi-Fi / 393g LTE) and 6.1 mm slim, running Android Lollipop out of the box.

As it is one of the lightest and slimmest tablet so Sony did an experiment at Fira Montjuic in Barcelona where they tied Xperia Z4 Tablet with 6 big balloons filled with helium to check whether Xperia Z4 Tablet can float or not.

Xperia Z3 Underwater unboxing video – World’s first

For the first time someone has unboxed a smartphone under the water and that smartphone is Sony’s Xperia Z3. Carphone Warehouse has come up with an Xperia Z3 Underwater unboxing video where they unboxed the phone like it is being done usually but the surrounding environment was water. Xperia Z3 is IP65/68 certified device which makes it the best water resistant device ever being produced by Sony yet.

Xperia Z3’s IP65/68 characteristics helped it getting no damage under water but surely other box accessories would have been damaged obviously. In the video you can see person taking pics under water.
