Sony Ericsson has unveiled a triplet of new smartphones, two of them part of the Xperia range.
The Xperia Ray is a well-featured phone with pleasant aesthetics including a 9.4mm thin aluminium body, with a 3.3 inch 854 x 480 Bravia-engine display fashioned from scratch-resistant glass.
It’ll have an 8.1 megapixel camera with Exmor R, auto-focus and 16x digital zoom, along with a 1GHz processor, 4GB of SD storage, GPS, bluetooth, wi-fi and 3G, running Android Gingerbread.
For sporty types, the Xperia Active packs a 3 inch 320 x 480 scratch-resistant display which apparently has wet-finger tracking, meaning if the phone or user’s hands are wet, it still works fine.
The handset is dust proof and water resistant, and comes with fitness apps such as on-screen heart rate monitoring using ANT+ wireless technology, and performance monitoring apps.
This is also an Android Gingerbread phone, and comes with a 1GHz processor, 5 megapixel camera (with HD recording), and various exercise related extras such as a wrist strap and arm case for use during workouts.
The final new offering is the Sony Ericsson txt, the sibling of the recently announced txt pro. This handset comes with a full Qwerty keyboard and SMS shortcut key for fast text messaging, and has a “friends” application with integrated social networking features.
The tech-spec is a 2.6 inch display, a 3.2 megapixel camera, and wi-fi but no 3G. Optionally it comes in pink, as well as blue, black and white.
While it’s not certain if all three devices will make it to the UK, the Xperia Ray definitely will. The trio of smartphones are all set for release at some point in the third quarter.
