The Xperia Z1S will be an exclusive to T-Mobile in the United States, but the smartphone itself is pretty identical to the Xperia Z1 with just a few changes. The first of which is the Z1S has an IP58 water resistance rating, which means it is completely waterproof. Normally a "waterproof" smartphone is simply "water-resistant", but the Xperia Z1S is the real deal.

 

Filling out the hardware side of things, we have a 2.2GHz quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor, 3000mAh battery, 5-inch 1920x1080-pixel "Triluminous" Sony display, a 20.7-megapixel rear-facing camera and Android 4.3 Jelly Bean. Sony Mobile US President, Ravi Nookala, has said: "As a waterproof smartphone complete with the best of Sony's technology, Xperia Z1s breaks the mold of not only what you can do with a smartphone, but where you can take it. Building on the momentum of the successful partnership for the launch of Xperia Z, T-Mobile's shared vision of delivering an uncompromised mobile experience makes them the perfect exclusive partner to bring Xperia Z1s to the U.S."
