The colour purple has been a staple for Sony’s smartphones since the original Xperia Z launched in 2013. Since then we have seen a purple Xperia Z Ultra, Z1 and Z2 as well as a number of purple entry and mid-level Xperia smartphones. However the Xperia Z3 bucked this trend, opting for ‘Copper’ and ‘Silver Green’ as its earthy colour options.
Well, if you missed a purple-coloured option for the Xperia Z3 then you may be happy to hear that Sony may introduce it after all. ePrice is reporting that a ‘Purple’ Xperia Z3 will launch in time for the Lunar New Year (19 February 2015). If this does turn out to be true, there is no guarantee that it will hit all markets globally. It may give the handset a nice boost though, especially as the price starts to comes down.
