It’s time to think pink, as Sony has just announced the new color variant for its second flagship of 2015, the Xperia Z5. Described as “warm” and “sophisticated” the new color is “designed to provide a natural complement to the existing colours and offer prospective Xperia customers with new ways of expressing their style.” The phone “features a svelte continuous plate form, with a metal frame and frosted glass back.” It will join the four existing colors to bring the total tally up to five shades.
The lead designer for the project, Rikke Gertsen Constein, had the following to say about the new design:
“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. ”
Sony has made the decision to purchase the Xperia Z5 in Pink all that much more simple by breaking down the key points of the device as follows:
- The world’s best camera in a leading smartphone*
- Integrated fingerprint sensor power button for intuitive unlock
- A svelte continuous plate form, with a metal frame and frosted glass back
- Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor, featuring octa-core CPUs, 64 bit capabilities and ultra-fast 4G LTE speeds
- Up to two-days** battery life and innovative power-saving technology.
Please note that pricing and availability have yet to be announced, however the phone is set to hit stores next month. Given how Xperia products are not as readily available in the USA, it is likely that customers will need to import the product to gain access, however only time will tell which market(s) the product will hit.
