After a set of teasers Sony has now announced a Pink variant of their Xperia Z5 smartphone. For those unaware the Sony Xperia Z5 is already available in black, white and green colours.
The Pink variant of the Xperia Z5 uses the same metal and frosted glass finish as seen in previous Xperia Z series smartphones. It worth noting that the Korean Electronics giant Samsung too launch a pink variant of their Note 5 flagship a few month back.
Sony claims that the sophisticated pink variant of Xperia Z5 is designed to round out the options for prospective Xperia owners and provide customers with new ways of expressing their style. Speaking on the launch, Rikki Gersten Constein, Lead Designer, Sony said, "Choosing a colour is a detailed process. The material of the phone and the design of the curves and edges play an important role and has a great impact on which colour is best suited. We knew we wanted to add pink to the Z5 series from our very first moodboards and sketches as it seemed to compliment the colour palette to the rest of the range.
"But to get the tone right with the frosted glass and aluminium frame did take some time. We researched many places in which the most beautiful shades of pink can be found, from nature and Japan's own Sakura cherry blossom right through to the colours in the sky during a beautiful sunset. We wanted the colour to appear strong and modern, and here the material is playing an important role. I feel what we have achieved with the light dusky pink is fresh, contemporary and modern in the Z5 materials," added Rikke.
Just to recall the Sony Xperia Z4 comes with a 5.2 inch Full HD (1920x1080p) display, Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 SOC, 3GB RAM, 23MP rear camera, IPX5/IPX8 rating for dust and water resistance, Fingerprint sensor and a 2900mAh battery.
The Sony Xperia Z5 runs on Android Lollipop 5.1 out of the box and will be available starting February, which is an apt time to go on sale - just before the Valentine's day.
