Sony Ericsson Xperia Ray launching next week?

The Sony Ericsson Xperia Ray could be landing in the UK next week as early as Monday according to Amazon.

The UK online retailer is advertising a sim-free version of the phone for £329.99 and underneath it says: ‘This item is due to be released on September 5th 2011.’

We’ve known for some time that the Xperia Ray is coming this month, O2 announced a September launch on its Coming Soon page, while Vodafone has also confirmed it will be selling it.

According to the mobile phone will be available slightly later – on the following Friday. On its website a sim free Xperia Ray costs £349.99 and is: ‘Due for release on 09 September 2011.’


Running Android Gingerbread 2.3.3, the Sony Ericsson Xperia Ray is one of the handsets we are most excited about. We had a brief hands-on with the phone at a Sony showcase early this year and it’s a stunning piece of kit, fashioned from aluminium and mineral glass and a very svelte 9.4mm deep.

A highlight is undeniably the 3.3-inch Reality Display screen, which has a high resolution of 854×480 pixels and is also scratch resistant.

Like the Xperia Arc, it includes Sony Ericsson’s new Exmor R CMOS sensor especially designed for mobile, which can capture 8-megapixel stills and 720p HD videos.

We’ll have to wait until next week to see if the phone arrives, but we’ll bring you a review as soon as possible.
