Back at CES 2013, when the Sony Xperia Z and Xperia ZL were announced, we were slightly confused on Sony’s Developer post which suggested that the Xperia ZL would arrive in three colours: black, white & red. The post, which can be found here, still hasn't been updated and says the ZL will come in the red colour, despite being nowhere seen on the show floor or in Sony’s official press images.
Well the red Sony Xperia ZL is indeed real and was spotted at the launch event for the new Xperia handsets in South East Asia. We were told that this is a prototype only and currently Sony Mobile has no plans to release this globally. However, given this, we’re not sure why Sony would make this handset available to the media to play with. Have a look at our pictures below. Would you like to see this get released? Or do you prefer the black and white models? Let us know in the comments below.
