Red Xperia XZ Premium announced in Japan

by XB on 18th October 2017

in Xperia XZ series

Japanese operator NTT docomo announced the Xperia XZ1 (SO-01K) and XZ1 Compact (SO-01K) will launch on its network earlier today. However, what caught our eye was that the Xperia XZ Premium (SO-04J) will shortly be available in a new red colour. We had previously caught some pictures of the red version back in May, but nothing new emerged from that until now.

The new colour will launch on docomo on 27 October, and so far there is no word whether it will be available outside of Japan. Check out some pictures of the new Red Xperia XZ Premium below – would you be keen to get your hands on one? If so, let us know in the comments below.

    Why only Japan Sony?? Why?? I think that you can selling it over Sony e-store on Internet right? Think about it!

    This puts my black xz premium to shame


    They should have had it from the start to begin with.

    I really miss the red colours they used to have for their Xperia Neo etc. Those were beautiful.

    It remembered me m SATIO <3.

  • Iki

    I’m fine with the blue one.

  • Emil Oskarsson

    Remember the red variant of Xperia ion? That one was cool aswell :) Sadly I had the black and blue variant of the Xperia neo hehe

    Black still looks gorgeous af on this phone.
    It’s like you can paint this phone with whatever color you like and it would look stunning.

  • Francis Troy Fabrigas

    I kind of like the idea that the color of the actual device goes on to the front as well. It kind of beats the purpose of having that color when you will just slab it with a getting-boring black front color, and in that case, you should’ve just picked up the Deepsea Black instead.

    That’s just my opinion though. Even Apple attempted a red iPhone and pretty much only few have appreciated it. They would’ve liked it if the front was also red or black.

    I can agree with that

  • Peter

    I owned one for two years, stunning camera wth xenon flash, sadly the symbian os sucks.

  • azzido

    I would buy it if red is more darker and stylish.

    Those were the days. Such beautiful colours.


    Nice! I so wanted that back then during the days.

  • Emil Oskarsson

    To be honest my xz premium in chrome is pretty badass too so the days aren’t over just yet ;)

    I still watch the pictures I took in those days and are totally superior with that amazing Xenon Flash. But exactly as you said, Symbian killed it.
