Mobile phone maker Sony Ericsson unveiled two new Android models in a bid to grab more of the burgeoning smartphone market.

Chief Marketing Officer Matthew Lang announced on Wednesday in Singapore that the company plans to launch the Xperia Ray and Xperia Active models during the third quarter.

Lang told AP that the new models should help the company expand its 11 per cent market share of the Android segment. Lang said Sony Ericsson also plans to introduce a less expensive model that highlights texting service and is aimed at teenagers.
