At the PLDT-Smart Jump Center this morning, we saw a couple of upcoming smartphones on display; among them is the Sony Ericsson Xperia Ray.
This phone might look small with its 3.3-inch display but it’s slim and sexy at 9.4mm on the side. It has the same resolution as the Xperia Arc but since it has small display, you get better pixel density.
What I really liked about this phone is the HD camera — the 8MP rear camera is really good and captures 720p HD videos.
The specs are pretty decent too and is positioned as a mid-range Android handset.
