Sony Reveals Two New Xperia Smartphones

As anticipated, Sony has announced its two new dual-core smartphones at the ongoing Mobile World Congress 2012. The two new smartphones include Xperia P and Xperia U. After the acquisition of Ericsson, this is the first official presence of Sony in any world event. Sony Ericsson merger is now developed into a new division entirely owned by Sony as Sony Mobile Communications.

The Sony’s Xperia NXT series of Android smartphones began its journey with the Xperia S and the first to join Xperia S in the series is Xperia P, encased within aluminum unibody construction. The Xperia P sports a 4-inch touchscreen that Sony praises as its ‘Reality Display’. The company says that the screen’s WhiteMagic technology offers it wider viewing angles under bright light.

The P variant also sports a relatively slower 1.0GHz dual-core processor. It also features an 8-megapixel camera with Sony’s Fast Capture technology, with an ability to capture 1080p video. The device also features Sony’s NFC SmartTags that offers users an ability to swap series of settings for use in different conditions. The device is supposed to go on sale in second quarter of 2012.

Sony also reveals its Xperia smart dock into which one can plug the Xperia P in order to connect it to an HDTV with the help of HDMI.

Next to Xperia P, the second device to join the Xperia series of smartphones is Xepria U. It sports a dual-core 1GHz processor, a 3.5-inch ‘Reality Display’ screen and a 5-megapixel camera. It also includes some of the features of Xperia P. Like Xepria P, it is expected to make debut in the second quarter of this year.

Xperia P will be available in three, while Xperia U will be offered in two finishes. It is, however, not mentioned by Sony whether the smartphones run on Android 4.0 or Ice Cream Sandwich. Also, there are no clues given about the pricing of the devices.
