Sony Ericsson has just announced the latest in its Sony Ericsson XPERIA range of Android handsets, the XPERIA Ray.
The XPERIA Ray will feature an ultra-sharp 3.3inch Reality Display screen with a resolution of 854 x 480 pixels and will run from a 1Ghz processor with the latest Android Gingerbread 2.3.3 operating system installed.
The Ray will also feature a Bravia Engine for a high quality display, 8.1mp camera with Exmor R™ sensor for mobile and HD video functionality, front facing camera for video calls, a scratch resistant screen and the usual XPERIA integration of the Facebook and Twitter Timescape functionality.
Size-wise the XPERIA Ray weighs in at 100 grams and is sized at 111 x 53 x 9.4mm, making it smaller than the Xperia Neo but around the same as the X8. It also has a 4GB microSD card for storage, a stereo hands free kit and is available in Black, Gold, White and even Pink colour schemes if you are that way inclined.
The handset itself is a mid-range model set to come behind the Sony Ericsson XPERIA Arc but will have all the features of an Android smartphone including Bluetooth, GPS, Wi-Fi and Google features.
No information as yet on pricing and availability but the handset is set for a third quarter release date.
