Sony Xperia P breaks cover, flaunts 4-inch WhiteMagic display, aluminum unibody construction
It's official, folks! The Sony Xperia P has just been unveiled at MWC 2012 becoming one of the latest Android smartphones to join the company's portfolio. What we are dealing with is a stylish handset flaunting an unibody construction and crafted out of brushed aluminum.

Something that helps the Sony Xperia P stand out of the crowd is its 4.0-inch qHD display. Manufactured using Sony's very own WhiteMagic technology, the device's screen is capable of delivering brightness superior to that of any other smartphone on the market today, according to Sony. Thanks to that, the screen's outdoor visibility should be outstanding, to say the least. 

Looking further down its specs sheet, we see a 1GHz dual-core chipset - the NovaThor U8500 by ST-Ericsson, providing the Sony Xperia P with processing power. Responsible for capturing those special moments is an 8-megapixel camera with Exmor R sensor residing on the smartphone's back. What is really cool about the camera is that it should be capable of booting really fast straight from the lock screen. Other notable features include 16 gigs of on-board storage and NFC.

The Sony Xperia P is expected to hit the market in the middle of Q2 of 2012. It will run Android 2.3 Gingerbread at launch, but an update to Ice Cream Sandwich will be made available soon after the smartphone's release.

Bad design. Only thing I like is the screen.

I'm actually surprised to see people agree with that. It just looks really plain and boring. Nothing stands out or catches my attention.

Nothing stands out? Well, I think it's quite strange that you think nothing stands out in this phone's design in a world full of black, rounded slabs, with the exception of HTC whose devices look so similar to each other.

It's different from other phones designs but it just isn't that pretty in my opinion.

Now that's a totally different story. If it is just your opinion, then it's ok, people have different tastes.

This is great but it's scary to know that they're putting phones out with dual core Cortex A9 in what is soon to be a Cortex A15 world...

Why? Benchmarks aside, it should perform great. Also this phone is meant to be great but not necessarily meant to rival the SGS3.
