Xperia Unseen Shows Sony Ericsson Xperia Ray
With the growing popularity of Sony Ericsson’s Xperia series we see that many of handsets from this lineup have won their worthy place under the Sun. One of the most popular handsets was the SE Xperia X10, but then the SE Xperia Arc S and the Xperia Ray came and shook the market.
The Ray differs from other handsets with its stylish design, outstanding features and high-class performance; it’s able to compete even with such phones as the Nokia N8 with its 12MP camera, or any Android 2.3-based high-end smartphone of any manufacturer. Later , as you read on to follow, you’ll get why I mentioned the Nokia N8…
On September 15, Xperia Unseen (series of short films made to celebrate the launch of the Xperia Ray) was unveiled. There are three films introducing a glimpse of celebrity life through the lens of a mobile phone. These films show how perfect the Ray is and how it can become your best friend.
The three-part film was shot with the help of a fashion model, Daisy Lowe, and cult celebrity photographer, Ben Rayner; the story tells how celebrities spend their weekdays.
The first part of the film is below, and you can enjoy it; the second one will be introduced on September 28, and the third part will come on October 12. The first part was premiered a few days ago on Sony Ericsson’s Facebook page and VICE.com. The film attracted much attention, since the photographer and the model are very popular nowadays — Daisy Lowe is simply beautiful, and Ben Rayner is really talented, with his works published in fashion magazines including Vogue and GQ.
So I guess the Xperia Ray, which is already selling in the UK, is worth such a promotion campaign with celebrities. The Sony Ericsson Xperia Ray runs Android 2.3 and has a powerful a 1GHz processor. It is quite thin — only 9.4mm and sports a 3.3-inch touchscreen. But beyond these “standard” features the phone boasts a Reality Display with Mobile BRAVIA Engine, captures with an 8.1MP camera which can also record HD videos and provides Sony’s Exmor R for mobile sensor with f/2.4 lens for a crystal clear image. This means the users can shoot high-quality pictures and videos even if there’s a lack of light around. I guess now you understand why I compared it with the Nokia N8.
Well, let’s wish a “Bon Voyage” to the Xperia Unseen, because the Xperia Ray has a long way to go, and that way won’t be too easy.
