Pretty in pink: the Sony Xperia Z5 lineup scores an alluring, dusty pink color version

If you're following Sony Mobile's official Instagram account, you've probably noticed that it has been teasing something pink coming our way for over a week now. Turns out it was a new color option for the Xperia Z5 family of devices—Xperia Z5, Xperia Z5 Compact, and Xperia Z5 Premium— which will "provide customers with new ways of expressing their style", as Sony puts it. Those willing to snatch a pink-colored Xperia Z5 will be able to do so come February 2016.

The new, light dusty pink color option for Z5 series is one of the more toned-down hues of pink we've seen on a smartphone. Actually, the majority of pink-colored devices rely on noticeably more brazen and vivid shades, but Sony has gone for a more sophisticated, classy, and unisex variation of the color, which is commendable. We like it very much!

Here is how the lead designer of the project, Rikke Gertsen Constein, beautifully elaborates the origins of this pink hue:

As a refresher, the Xperia Z5 is also available in black, white, and green; the Xperia Z5 Premium is available in black, gold, and silver; and finally, the Xperia Z5 Compact comes in black, white, yellow, and coral. Don't forget to check out our reviews of the Xperia Z5, Z5 Compact, and Z5 Premium, too!

not so nice Tyrion I'm thinking about reporting you for hate speech

So calling something masculine or girly is not hate speech, and calling something gay is! It seems like you are the one discriminating, considering that gay is a negative word.

You could have used more intelligent, less offensive vernacular to convey your message. I know you're capable of doing that.

You just told us more about yourself, than about the phone.

Pink is always an unisex color, every color is unisex.
