Sony Ericsson has revealed some information about three upcoming models in a press release today. The three models are called Xperia ray, Xperia active and Sony Ericsson txt.

Xperia ray is an X10-like model that weighs in at only 100 grams. It has a 8.1 megapixel camera and a 3.3 inch screen with a resolution of 854×480 pixels. It will be available in the colors gold, white, pink and black.

  • Sleek, beautiful smartphone with stylish aluminium frame
  • Reality Display with Mobile BRAVIA® Engine with 8.1mp camera and Exmor R™ for mobile
  • Latest Android platform for smartphones (Gingerbread 2.3) with Facebook inside Xperia™

Xperia active is a shock-resistant phone with a 3-inch large screen and the relatively low resolution of 320×480 pixels. The phone is dust proof and water resistant, so it is a perfect companion for sporty people. It can stay 1 meter under water for up to 30 minutes. In addition, it has a built-in barometer.

  • Dust proof and water resistant smartphone powered by Android™
  • Scratch resistant multi touch screen with wet finger tracking
  • All the applications for your active life, including on-screen heart rate monitoring through ANT+

Sony Ericsson txt is the budget model of the three, and its focus is mainly on text messaging. It does not have 3G, so it is very unclear on what markets it will be released. But with a full QWERTY keyboard, SMS messaging should be a breeze. It will be available in the colors blue, black, white and pink.

  • Sony Ericsson txt integrates full QWERTY keyboard
  • SMS shortcut key for faster messaging
  • Friends application for greater social interaction

The price of the new phones is still unknown, but they will be “available globally in selected markets from Q3 2011.”
