Not to be outdone by its peers that are offering their flagship products in various shade and colors, with the latest being the Garnet Red Samsung Galaxy S3 on AT&T and the white and silver combo HTC EVO 4G LTE on Sprint, it looks like Sony Mobile will offer a refreshed variant of its flagship phone. Meet the red Xperia Ion.

Some beautiful hands-on pictures of the red Sony Xperia Ion have been posted by the folks at yesky, which showcase the velvety phone in various angles. Check them out below.

If you’re smitten by the black Xperia Ion, it’s hard to deny the oozing appeal of the red model as well. Unfortunately, it appears the red Xperia Ion will only be available for the GSM version. The LTE version, which is released in the U.S. and Canada, will come only in black.

The Xperia Ion was recently launched by Sony Mobile in the U.S. and is now available from AT&T for $99 with a two year contract. In Canada, the Xperia Ion will be a Rogers exclusive and the carrier has just announced that the phone will be offered for a very affordable price of $50 with a three-year contract. Not a bad proposition at all for a phone that boasts a 4.6-inch HD display and 12MP rear camera.

What do you say? Red or black?
