Sony Xperia P Announced; Comes With a WhiteMagic Display!

Sony has just announced its latest addition to its Xperia NXT series of  handsets, the Xperia P. The phone has an aluminum unibody, and has a 4-inch display with qHD (960×540) resolution, and comes with Sony’s new WhiteMagic display. This helps in making sure that the display is visible easily outside in the bright sunlight.

The Xperia P uses Sony’s own NovaThor SoC, which packs in two Cortex-A9 CPUs clocked at 1.2GHz and an ARM-Mali 400MP GPU. There is also 1GB of RAM and 16GB of internal memory.

The phone also has an 8MP camera, which is also capable of recording videos in full HD (1080p) resolution. The usual bunch of connectivity features like HSPA+ 21Mbps, mini-HDMI port, GPS with A-GPS, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and NFC are also present. Sadly, the handset runs on Android 2.3 Gingerbread, instead of Ice Cream Sandwich, which is quite a disappointment.

The Xperia P will ship in mid-Q2 of 2012 at an unknown price.
