Damn, that red looks amazing. And it's also amazing if they ship it running the latest Android version.

Probably a custom ROM

There can't be a custom ROM on a version of Android that doesn't exist.

Android build number can be easily changed. Just a notepad away on build.prop file, you can have Android 8.6.2 or whatsoever.

It looks burgundy not red.

I prefer this colour, especially for winter :)

Would be nicer for me if the bezels are red also, then I would'nt think twice of getting it.
Though this could only be just a custom made one and not a prototype from Sony.

I am so sick of manufacturers leaving all their face plates black in non-black variants. Am I the only one?

It makes sense from a design point of view. It's a continuous glass surface and needs to stay uninterrupted. Painting it in colour and leaving the screen area as some sort of window somewhere there in the middle interrupts the continuity of the design and the cool black glass feeling when the screen is off.

It's like only Samsung and Apple know how to make proper colored phones

They are fake photos we share to this fan page just for fun (see the album description for detail). Why did XperiaGuide use our photos without confirmation from us?

Please check secafe.vn, we don't have any article about this because it's not real.

Thanks you
