The Xperia U follows the same design language as the Xperia S but brings with it a personality more suited to the young and style conscious with interchangeable colour caps at the bottom edge.
Another cool feature of the Xperia U is the transparent belt that now features a multi-colour LED array. When viewing pictures in the gallery app, the transparent belt changes colour to match with the dominant colour on the picture that you’re viewing. That’s a cool feature that we’re pretty sure many of you would like.
In terms of hardware, the Xperia U brings a 3.5-inch 854×480 pixel Reality Display with Mobile Bravia Engine, a 1Ghz dual-core processor and a 5MP rear camera with Fast Capture and 720p video recording.
