When the Xperia Z3 originally launched, it did so with black, copper, white and green color options. For fans of Sony products, the lack of a purple option may have been disheartening.
According to a leak, that could be changing soon. Based on a report from Chinese website ePrice [translated], a purple variant of the Xperia Z3 is coming soon. While nothing is official quite yet, it has been suggested that Sony is preparing to launch the purple-clad handset in time for the Lunar New Year, which means the new/old handset could see the light of day around February 19.
The device has a black front with a purple back, and as far as features go, it should be exactly the same as any other Xperia Z3 on the market right now. While it may not be an outright new device, a new color scheme can sometimes be enough to breathe some fresh life into an aging handset. And considering Sony’s fondness for purple devices in the past, a launch like this would certainly make sense, even if there are rumors that Sony’s mulling over a possible sale of its mobile division.
