It has been reported that Sony has announced a purple variant of the phone which can only be purchased from the Japanese carrier, Docomo. The new color variant will go on sale on November 12 but reservations are already being accepted.

According to Docomo’s website, this purple variant will be limited to online shops only, so you won’t find it if you go to purchase it at a physical store.
