Sony's 2012 NXT lineup spec comparison: Xperia S vs Xperia P vs Xperia U
Sony has just updated its 2012 portfolio with two new devices: the Sony Xperia P with its super bright WhiteMagic display and the compact yet stylish Sony Xperia U. The last addition to the company’s lineup for the year is the previously unveiled Sony Xperia S, which should come in a slightly modified LTE-equipped version in the US known as the Xperia ion.

The three handsets all share the same design language boxy simplistic looks and a transparent illuminated strip on the bottom. The Xperia S, U and P also all feature the dated Android Gingerbread but it’s well skinned and comes with the promise of a future ICS update. Where the trio differ though is the screens and the inside stuffing.

The Xperia S sports a Qualcomm chip, while the U and P come with STE U8500 dual-core chip with processors clocked at 1GHz. The Xperia S also has the most impressive camera - a 12-megapixel unit capturing 1080p videos. But the differences are best seen in contrast, so with no further ado, check out Sony’s 2012 international Xperias stripped down to their specs and put side-to-side below.
