Sony's 2017 flagship, the Xperia XZ Premium
, will be available in one additional color variation upon release. The Japanese tech giant took to Twitter to announce a brand new "Bronze Pink" hue for the device.
As you may know, Sony managed to surprise many at this year's MWC with the introduction of the XZ Premium. Although the large bezels on the phone look a bit passé after the announcements of the LG G6
and Samsung Galaxy S8
, the handset certainly makes up for it in the hardware department. It features the powerful Snapdragon 835 chipset, a 5.5-inch 4K HDR display, and a new 19 MP main camera that can shoot super slow motion
videos at 960 fps. The addition of a new color variation is certainly welcome, as Sony only unveiled two shades for the XZ Premium back at the show in Barcelona - Deepsea Black and Luminous Chrome.
Satoshi Aoyagi, Xperia's color designer, has shared his thoughts on the new hue:
We wanted to find a colour that represented a feeling of warmth whilst at the same time exemplifying the premium features and design. The bronze metallic finish adds a feeling of depth to the glass on the front and back. Also just like the other colours every part of the Xperia XZ Premium Bronze Pink has been expertly crafted – such as the top and bottom edges, which are carefully diamond cut and creates an added shine. It’s a chic addition to the choice of colours offered with XZ Premium.
