Xperia 5 is available in RED BLUE WHITE AND BLACK

 

However it depends on which region you are, the red and blue are market dependent

Re: Sony we want another color that isn't just black

Hi @Tyrone123,

It can be the carriers that only wants the black colour and that is why only they are available. Here in the Nordics, there are 3 colours available (Black, Red and Blue).

Some colours can be exclusive to a specific carrier and if I remember correctly one of my friends from the UK said that was the case for the green Xperia XZ3 and it seems to be the case for the grey one according to the post made by @nolramlb.

Have you tried contacting the carriers and asked them why only the black colour is available?

@eddy_hyde, I really wanted that colour as well but it's not available here so I decided on a black one!

they say nothing, but it is curious that in carriers only black is when people prefer colors

Re: Sony we want another color that isn't just black

People don't prefer colour in general. There are only a few of us who would select a fancy colour, most of the people just choose black or white. Especially companies that equip their employees with phones will always select the most boring colour available because they don't want to stand out. It's the same with cars -selling a black or white car is much easier than one with a colour.

@Tyrone123, I see!

Can you check your Local Sony Mobile website and see if other colours are available in your market? I think most markets should have more than the black colour.

Where I live, most people use a cover so they can have their credit cards, bus cards and so on together with the device and they don't need a wallet and I guess the colour doesn't mean that much to them.

I do agree with you though, I prefer a something else than black if the option is available.

@skycamefalling, that's a really good point! Slightly smiling Face

Black or white makes it a bit more stealthy and does not stick out as much as a red/blue one would and some people may prefer that. We almost always get the black colour to the office but I still remember the chrome Xperia XZ Premium that we got a few years back, that was a real beauty!

I'm glad to hear that you are giving the Xperia 5 a shot and I'm jealous about the red colour, I want that as well!

Have a great day! Slightly smiling Face
