The flagship Xperia P will feature a a 4in display, and is the first handset to use Sony's White Magic display technology. The smartphone will also come with an 8-megapixel camera that will shoot 1080p video, NFC and a unibody frame.
Meanwhile, the Xperia U will have a 3.5in form factor, a 1GHz dual-core processor and 5-megapixel camera. It is expected to be released some time in Q2.
