    You should launch a new version of the Xperia Ray “plus” with a bigger screen (3.8”or 4.0”).
    Would be nice to relaunch “2012” this Smartphone ;)

      Hi Ifor,
      We’re still waiting for a final version of the White Paper, so this will confirm whether or not these devices have the pressure sensor. Stay tuned!
