Sony has confirmed the launch of the Xperia P and Xperia U, the latest phones in the Sony NXT series launched with the Xperia S.
Like the Xperia S, the Xperia P features an eight-megapixel camera and full HD video recording. HDMI connectivity allows users to throw pictures onto the big screen – or surf the net on their mobile with a TV as your monitor.
The Xperia P also works with NFC tags like the Xperia S, where you can pop NFC-enabled fobs that activate preset apps or profile combinations on your phone – for example, it turns the sound off when you get to the office, or starts music when you get home.
The Xperia P will be available in brushed aluminium and three colours, and hits the shelves in Q2.
Chief marketing officer Steve Walker confirmed that all Xperia smartphones would come with a dual-core processor, in contrast to the quad-core superphones announced by Huawei and HTC.
At a lower price point, we have the Xperia U, a 'compact design of Sony Entertainment', with a 1GHz dual-core processor, 3.5-inch (480x854) display and a five-megapixel camera. There's also some kind of detachable chin, which comes in subtle black or shocking pink, that you can customise the base of the phone with.
Three has confirmed it wil stock the Xperia U, while Orange has dibs on a white version.
We'll have details on this and more when we go hands-on with these two flagships of the new Sony brand.
