Sony Xperia P, Xperia U takes cue from Xperia S




While Sony has already announced its first flagship smartphone (post-Sony Ericsson era) with the Xperia S, two new mid-level handsets were also revealed — the Xperia P and the Xperia U.

Sony Xperia P specs:
4.0-inch LCD display @ 540×960 pixels, 275ppi
NovaThor U8500 1.0GHz dual-core processor
1GB RAM
16GB internal storage
WiFi 802.11 b/g/n, DLNA
3G/HSPA
Bluetooth 2.1
GPS w/ aGPS support
8MP autofocus rear camera, LED flash
1080p video recording
VGA front facing camera
NFC support
FM radio tuner
1300mAh Li-Ion battery
Android 2.3 Gingerbread

While the Xperia P is considered as the mid-level smartphone by Sony, the Xperia U is the entry-level handset with a smaller display screen.

Sony Xperia U specs:
3.5-inch LCD display @ 480×854 pixels, 280ppi
NovaThor U8500 1.0GHz dual-core processor
512MB RAM
8GB internal storage
WiFi 802.11 b/g/n, DLNA
3G/HSPA
Bluetooth 2.1
GPS w/ aGPS support
5MP autofocus rear camera, LED flash
720p video recording
VGA front facing camera
FM radio tuner
1300mAh Li-Ion battery
Android 2.3 Gingerbread

The NovaThor chipset is a product of ST-Ericsson which consist of an integrated System on Chips (SoC) and modems. The NovaTor U8500 supports a dual-core processor and an HSPA modem.

NovaThor is also the same processor that Nokia uses in their Windows Phone 7 handsets.

Both handsets will be upgradeable to Ice Cream Sandwich once it becomes available. Though I am told the Sony Xperia S will be released in the Philippines by the 2nd week of April, I am not sure if the XPeria P and Xperia U will tag long with it.

    … and I initially thought these lack external storage expansion … Are you sure about the 32Gb external storage device expansion capability or are you just floating these specifications unofficially?

    Xperia P in aluminum unibody is a great design, Xperia S (the flagship) should have been aluminum also instead of plastic

    1300mAh battery only? This doesn’t look good already…

    Xperia P uses WhiteMagic screen so even at 1300 mAh it will be battery efficient.

    i guess kailangan i cut ng sony ang sd card, due to possible lags/slow preformances ng mga phones. kasi the more latest ung hardware at lumang ver. ng sd ang ginagamit that’s the possibilities na mag ka conflict tend to slow everything! this fact is SUPER REAL!!! go kaya pla never ako ng ka exp. ng slow at laggy sa mga apple products

    @i hate iCrap
    its not a plastic sir. UV coating(stain free under sunlight) po ang gamit ng sony for S, di po basta bsta plastic ang ginagamit ng SE/Sony sa mga phone nila, kaya nga they well deserve to win 4 best design.
