The Sony Xperia P and Sony Xperia U availability has been pushed back to the end of May, according to online retailer Clove. Although Sony never officially unveiled an exact release date beyond Q2, the retailer states on its website availability has been pushed back from May 7th to May 28th.
Sony has no official comment but has assured us they’ll keep us informed. The devices along with the original launch date were announced back at MWC in Barcelona earlier this year. Both NXT series devices fall in line under the flagship Xperia S, which has already made it to market.
The Sony Xperia P chimes in as Sony Mobile’s new midrange device, offering a 1GHz dual core processor and a high resolution 4-inch qHD display with the company’s new White Magic technology, designed to offer superior sunlight visibility and battery saving optimisations, the result of a more finely tuned light sensor and an addition white sub-pixel in the display itself.
The Sony Xperia U is the smallest of the NXT series devices, aimed at a younger market due to its lower price point and customisable coloured caps. The U features a 3.5″ FWVGA display and like it’s bigger brother, a 1GHz dual core processor. Although the human curvature design found on all of the NXT devices, the U is the only one with a glowing see-through element that changes colour depending on the predominant pixel colours on-screen.
