Sony was part of CES (Consumer Electronics Show) 2016, Las Vegas, held between 6 and 9 January, but it did not unveil any smartphone. Now, the company via social media is hinting at a new Xperia handset this week.

Sony Xperia's official account on Instagram has teased pink hued objects such as scarf, balloon and make-up kit with a caption: "There are many shades of beauty. Follow us to discover our latest work of art on 12.01.16."

The second message read: "A pop of something new calls for a celebration! Follow us to find out what's coming on 12.01.16.#Xperia #WatchThisSpace."

The third one read - "Follow us as we unveil seamless luxury. 12.01.16. #Xperia #ComingSoon #WatchThisSpace."

All these series of cryptic messages from Sony has led Xperia Blog to believe that the company might unveil the Pink colour variant of the flagship Xperia Z5 series phone.

The use of words "beauty, luxury and celebration" in the messages does indicate that the upcoming device is certainly a flagship series. But, there is no word on which of the Xperia Z5 series -- Premium or Z5 or Z5 Compact -- will come in the new colour.

Nothing is set in stone for us to believe it will be the new Xperia Z5 series. There is also a possibility that Sony might unveil a new series of smartphone. We just have to wait a few more hours to finally know what the company has in store for its fans on Tuesday.
