MULTITRONS Sdn Bhd, the sole distributor of Sony products in Brunei, yesterday launched the latest Sony BRAVIA R304B and R350B TVs with extra protection features as well as the new Sony Xperia Z3 and Xperia Z3 Compact smartphones.
The launching ceremony was held at Badiah hotel in Jalan Tutong. Present to witness the event were Masaki Matsumae, General Manager and Head of Sony’s Regional Market Development Centre in Singapore, Multitrons Sdn Bhd General Manager Wong Kok Phing and Director Juraimi Hj Masrah, local Sony authorised dealers as well as officers from Sony South East Asia, Singapore.
Sony Product Specialist, Gen-Ghis-Manalo-Chan, in his products presentation highlighted that the two new TVs can withstand external environmental factors and deliver quality entertainment in clear definition. It was designed to include a new ‘Xtra Protection’ feature and is reinforced to protect against dust, electrical surges (either by lightning or voltage spikes) and humid conditions, increasing not only its durability and reliability but also its longevity, he said.
Besides improving on the two unit’s durability, Sony has not compromised on two new models’ image quality. They are equipped with Dynamic Backlight Control, which suppresses unneeded light to produce dark rich tones to ensure that viewers can also enjoy well-lit images with true deep blacks as well as a sense of depth in every scene.
Sony’s Xperia Z3, according to the company’s press release, blends design and engineering craftsmanship to deliver beauty that will stand the test of time. Its 7.3mm super-slim rounded aluminium frame and durable tempered glass panel showcases superior craftsmanship that is available with a new range of colours including white, black, copper or silver green.
For those who prefer a compact smartphone, the Xperia Z3 Compact is the only smartphone to deliver uncompromised performance in a beautifully compact design that is just 8.6mm thick and 129 grammes, perfect for one-handed use, the company claims.
According to Sony, both models feature the highest waterproof rating (IP 65/68), making answering a call in the rain or taking pictures in the pool a reality. Both models come with optimal battery performance for a long–lasting battery life of up to two days.
