When you bring a new smartphone to a crowded market, you need to stand out. So to launch its waterproof Xperia Z3 range, Sony Mobile took a totally new direction: down. All the way to the bottom of the sea.

The world’s first underwater store brought the Sony store experience to the shores of Dubai. With nearly 17,000 litres of breathable space, customers who swam through its doors could explore the Xperia range in a truly unique environment.
