If you’re in the market for a new waterproof smartphone, chances are you’ve come across the Xperia Z3+ and while it was previously listed for pre-order, the handset is now available to buy unlocked for £499 from retailers Clove Technology and Unlocked Mobiles. Both retailers had previously listed the handset as coming soon with an estimated shipping date of this month and now, the handset is in-stock in both black and white.

Here’s what’s new with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 810 v2.1

As a refresher, the Xperia Z3+ is the international sibling to the Xperia Z4, which was made for the Japanese market. The Xperia Z3+ has a 5.2-inch Triluminos Full HD IPS display offering 424 pixels per inch density, a 20.7MP G Lens rear camera with BIONZ image processing engine and a 2900mAh non-removable battery. Other notable specs include IP68 dust and water resistance meaning you can use it up to 1.5 metres underwater for up to 30 minutes, 32GB internal storage, a microSD card expansion slot, 3GB RAM and the usual array of connectivity options.

Sony has said an update is due later this summer which will fix these concerns and even with these in mind, the Xperia Z3+ will still appeal to some users.

If you’re looking for the green Xperia Z3+, you’ll need to head over to Carphone Warehouse, who have an exclusive on the handset in the UK. The retailer is offering a free Hi-Res audio promotion worth £275 when you order the Xperia Z3+ or head over to Clove and Unlocked Mobiles at the links below.
