The phone also packs an 8.1-megapixel camera with the Exmore R sensor that their latest phones have been known for to give excellent images in low light conditions. The phone also features a front facing camera for video calling purposes. The Xperia ray comes preloaded with a 4GB microSD card (expandable up to 32GB), and a 1500mAh battery. The phone is only 9.4mm thin, and weighs 100 grams.
