Sony Mobile has released a Pink Xperia Z5 as expected. The new colour addition to the Xperia Z5 series will be released during February 2016, which Sony describes as a “warm, sophisticated pink variant.” The handset will arrive just in time for Chinese New Year and Valentine’s Day.
Rikke Gertsen Constein, lead designer on the project had the following to say about how tricky it was in choosing the ‘right’ pink: “We knew we wanted to add pink to the Z5 series from our very first moodboards and sketches as it seemed to compliment the colour palette to the rest of the range”.
“But to get the tone right with the frosted glass and aluminium frame did take some time. We researched many places in which the most beautiful shades of pink can be found, from nature and Japan’s own Sakura cherry blossom right through to the colours in the sky during a beautiful sunset. We wanted the colour to appear strong and modern, and here the material is playing an important role. I feel what we have achieved with the light dusky pink is fresh, contemporary and modern in the Z5 materials“, said Constein.
