Since last May we’ve seen some hands-on photos showing an impressive red Sony Xperia XZ Premium. However, there was no information on when and where the red version of XZ Premium will be released.

Eventually, several months later, the company officially announced the new red edition of Sony Xperia XZ Premium, which will be released in Japan on October 27th. The handset will be available from docomo, the country’s largest provider.

As for the rest of the markets, unfortunately no information was provided as to whether it would come. In addition to color, the internal features remain the same as the other versions of Luminous Chrome, Deepsea Black and Bronze Pink.

Finally, it was announced that the Sony Xperia XZ Premium in Japan will be upgraded to Android 8.0 Oreo in December.
