At the annual Mobile World Congress in Barcelona Sony has finally showcased the 2 new phones that will round out the stable of the first Sony smartphones. Along with the already seen Xperia S (which a review will be coming up on the main page sometime this week), Sony has announced the arrival of the Xperia U and the Xperia P.

Firstly the Xperia P: The phone features a 4inch WhiteMagic display which is Sony's new display technology that is touted to be the brightest and smartest display on the market today. The WhiteMagic's auto brightness is also refined to conserve as much battery as possible while providing stellar viewing even outdoors. The Xperia P will feature a brushed aluminum, unibody construction as well as an 8MP camera with the 1 second from standby to capture we have seen on the Xperia S. Under the hood, you'll find a 1GHz dual-core processor, NFC functionality and if you have the Xperia Smart Dock, you'll be able to connect your phone to a keyboard, mouse and TV for a gimped desktop experience.

Next, the Xperia U: One of the most interesting developments in the smartphone market so far is not the Xperia U's 1GHz dual-core processor, neither is it the 3.5inch Reality display or 5MP camera, or is it even the removable and replaceable bottom caps on the phone. The Xperia U's bottom transparent band has the colour changing functionality that the Xperia S lacked and more. Not only is it able to change colour with your themes, its also able to detect what is the main color of the media being played and will change accordingly. It's refreshing to see that in a market where screen size/clarity/brightness, cores, thickness and megapixels are king, Sony is also making headway on being pretty.

Both the Xperia U and P will be available come middle of Q2 2012. At launch the phones will have Android 2.3 installed but will be upgradable later that quarter. What do you think about the new Xperia U and P? Check out all the promo videos and full tech specs
