Sony Ericsson Xperia Ray Photos And User Guide At FCC

Advertisement

When Sony Ericsson announced the Xperia Ray, it placed a name on a smartphone that we had been following for the previous several weeks, the ST18a Urushi. That was only a few weeks ago, and the Xperia Ray has already completed its FCC certification, showing off some pictures and a manual in the process.

Unlike the usual collection of FCC documents we see, for the Xperia Ray Sony Ericsson took it pretty easy with its requests to keep certain information confidential; we won’t see any schematics or circuit diagrams, but this is practically a cavalcade compared to the likes of what we’d get with a Motorola publication.

Besides the pics and instructional material, there’s of course the requisite technical data, here showing compatibility with AT&T’s WCDMA bands, as expected (the Ray also supports 800MHz and 2100MHz, with the FCC did not evaluate). We’ve heard the smartphone may be released in the UK on August 15, but estimates for a US launch aren’t any more specific than Q3 2011. The Ray has a 1GHz CPU, a 3.3-inch display with Sony’s Bravia tech, and an eight-megapixel Exmor rear camera.
