Although Z3v is thin and light as ever, it still varies from the European version. It adds a metal strip around the edges of the plastic body instead of being completely encompassed. In addition, both the front and the back sides are made of glass and the round Power Button is on the right side of the body. What’s more, Sony announces that Z3v will be the most powerful waterproof phone among their products owing to its IP68 waterproof capacity.
