We have seen images of these handsets in leaks over the last couple of months and as expected, Sony has raised the curtains on the Xperia P and Xperia U smartphones ahead of the Mobile World conference event which will kick off today. Giving a little insight into their NXT series of handsets, Sony says, “Incorporating the best of Sony technology and premium entertainment, the Xperia NXT series is a cornerstone of Sony’s connected experience.  With easy connectivity, consumers can enjoy and share content on whichever screen best suits them, whether it’s their smartphone, TV, laptop or tablet.” If one is concerned where Sony manages to put the antenna on these gorgeous smartphones, the brand answers this by saying, “These smartphones have intriguing design features including the “transparent element”, a band that encircles the base of the phone and also integrates invisible antenna components.”

The Xperia P smartphone features a full aluminium unibody design and it is the first smartphone from the brand to incorporate the Sony WhiteMagic display technology. The brightest viewing experience is enhanced with this technology and power efficiency is also taken care off as it automatically adjusts the screens brightness depending on the surroundings, this helps in conserving the life of the battery.
