Sony's 2012 NXT lineup spec comparison: Xperia S vs Xperia P vs Xperia U

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.

Not gonna lie these phones look awesome! More stylish than anything I've seen for quite a while. I wish that sony would have its own OS though, it would be interesting to see what they could create.

Moths later I think that there is no discussion over the battery life. I have got xperia S and the battery life is more than dissapointing, I would say worse than my Iphone 4. But the specs and the camera - awesome

Beautiful phones, definately will be getting one of these come the end of my contract (june) will be a welcome change from my motorola cliq to say the least! Would love the Xperia S but might bea little out of my price point, so thankful the P and U are available, now Sony, get marketing!

The NXT lineup better have competitive pricing, considers how others are ante up with quad-cores processors and bigger batteries.

1st of all. I know that Remiz isnt going to like these phone becuz they are powered by Qualcomm.

2nd off, did anyone notice that the 4.3" has a 12mp camera?

Since the existence of the Droid RAZR MAXX, I somewhat find the batteries of the above devices disappointing.
