Sony Mobile Communications has announced a second series of their latest Android smartphone, which still uses the Android version 2.3 aka Gingerbread. Does this mean the Xperia P and U, the name of the second series, made before they officially announced the acquisition of 100% on Ericsson? Could be. To be sure, Sony promises the availability of an update to ICS in the second quarter of this year as well.
Sony Xperia P brings 4 inch screen as a “window” of users, QHD resolution 540 × 960 pixels with Reality Display technology support. 1GHz dual-core processor has been invested to support the performance of various features in it, including an 8MP camera that can record Full HD 1080p video as well as record 2D/3D panorama.

Along with the P series, Sony also introduced the Xperia U in welcoming the Mobile World Congress 2012. Indeed, P and U series are included in the Xperia NXT series with the Sony Xperia S. Later if the third phone will be aligned like rungs form in which the highest Xperia S, P, and U in the middle of the shortest, as you can see in the picture gallery below.
