Xperia™ P – ultra-bright viewing experience
The Xperia™ P debuts WhiteMagic™ display technology from Sony for the first time on a smartphone. WhiteMagic™ technology delivers the brightest viewing experience; whether at the beach or on ski slopes. Smart power efficiency automatically adjusts the brightness of the screen to the surroundings to conserve battery life.
Xperia™ P sports a full aluminium unibody design and boasts Reality Display powered by Mobile BRAVIA® Engine for razor-sharp clarity, along with fast capture to take the camera from sleep to snap in a little over a second with a single key press. The smartphone comes with a powerful 1 GHz dual-core processor for super fast performance.
The new SmartDock, exclusively for Xperia™ P, offers simple connectivity to multiple screens, turning the smartphone into an entertainment hub for the living room. Using a TV remote control consumers can easily navigate their smartphone’s media content to watch their HD videos, the latest movies or favourite TV shows on the big screen. With USB support in the SmartDock, they can also use a wireless keyboard and mouse to write emails, browse and post on Facebook or watch videos from YouTube on their TV.
Xperia™ NXT series - iconic design
The Xperia™ NXT series features an iconic design that is instantly recognisable. The phones sport a “transparent element” encircling the base of the phone which illuminates when receiving calls, texts and notifications. The same design principles apply to the new UI – offering rich applications and content with a simple and clean look.
Xperia™ NXT series – crisp and loud sound experience
Xperia™ NXT users will enjoy a crisp and loud sound experience with the xLoud™, Clear Bass and Sony 3D surround sound audio technology integrated into the music player. They can also stream music from their Xperia NXT™ smartphones to wireless speakers with a touch using DLNA. With these technologies and a new music and video player, the Xperia™ NXT series will deliver compelling entertainment experiences.
Xperia™ SmartTags – switch your smartphone settings with a single swipe
The Xperia™ P is NFC enabled and it comes with two NFC Xperia™ SmartTags in the box. Simply swipe the phone on a SmartTag and the pre-configured profile will be launched automatically. These profiles can be easily personalised to reflect any taste, designed to save consumers’ time and make their lives easier.
