Xperia S gets baby siblings


We already had a chance to try out Sony's first smartphone sans Ericsson, the Xperia S, and now, during its pre-MWC press event, Sony has announced two new smartphones, the 4-inch Xperia P and 3.5-inch Xperia U.

Basically, the new Xperia P and the Xperia U are smaller versions of the flagship Xperia S that is now officially shipping globally. The Xperia P is a 4-inch 540x960 smartphone that has an aluminum unibody case, something that a lot of consumers will certainly like. The 4-inch Reality touchscreen on the Xperia P features, what Sony calls, White Magic technology that should provide exceptional brightness, at least according to Sony. It also features Mobile Bravia Engine.

The Xperia P packs ST-Ericsson U8500 dual-core 1GHz CPU, 1GB of memory, 16GB of storage space and runs on Android 2.3.7 OS with a dash of Sony's Timescape, while an ICS update should come in the near future. The rest of the features include 8MP rear camera with LED flash and 1080p video recording, front VGA camera, as well as HDMI and USB ports and NFC support. The Xperia P will be available in black, white and red brushed aluminum colors.

The Xperia U is the smallest of the bunch and feature a 3.5-inch 480x854 Reality display and certainly aims at female part of the market with its pink and yellow exchangeable bottom caps for the black and white versions of the phone. The transparent bar also changes colors. The smallest Xperia U packs a dual-core 1GHz CPU, 512MB of RAM and 8GB of storage and should ship with the same Gingerbread 2.3.7 OS with Sony Timescape skin. The rest of features include 720p capable 5MP snapper on the back and VGA front one as well as an HDMI output.

Both the new Xperia P and the Xperia U should start shipping in Q2 2012 and prices are yet to be announced.
