Last week, we spoke about Sony’s intentions to launch a new purple variant of the Xperia Z3 flagship. While it didn’t make sense at first, it seems like the company is following through with the plans as a new leak from Taiwan has revealed this device in action.
Sony only launched the Xperia Z3 in black and white color combinations, so the arrival of the purple model at this juncture is a little odd. Keeping that in mind, it is likely that Sony will reserve the launch of the Xperia Z3 in select regions. Considering that we’re getting hold of these images from a Taiwanese source, it is likely that the launch of this variant will be limited to Asian markets.
The Xperia Z3 is expected to get a successor in March, so the timing of the launch seems off. But in Sony’s case, trying anything at this point is feasible given the repeated losses it is seeing in the mobile industry. Given that we’re already seeing units in the wild, the company probably won’t wait long to launch the device.
