Sony Xperia P Approved by FCC, Heading to Various Carriers

Sony has already confirmed it will introduce its entire Xperia NXT lineup of phones in the United States in Q2 2012.

However, the official announcement doesn’t mention anything regarding the carriers that will offer the Xperia smartphones. 

There’s also no info on the exact release dates for any of the three devices that are expected to hit shelves in the US: Xperia S, Xperia U and Xperia P.

The only thing that we know for certain is that Brightstar will bring these Xperia NXT devices to various carriers and authorized retailers in the country.

Until more details on the upcoming availability of these smartphones emerge, the folks at Engadget report that the Sony Xperia P has just received FCC’s (Federal Communications Commission) approval, which suggests that we’re closer to an official announcement than we might think.

Unfortunately, there is still no additional carrier-related information available, so this one might be released by more than one operator in the States.

Unveiled back in February at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Sony Xperia P will be shipped with Android 2.3 Gingerbread platform at launch. 

Although the Japanese company confirmed all smartphones in the Xperia NXT series will be upgraded to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich soon after launch, there’s no telling when exactly these updates will be pushed.

Hardware-wise, the Xperia P is less-featured than the Xperia S, but can still be considered a powerful device. The phone embeds a 1 GHz dual core processor, 1GB of RAM, 16GB of internal memory, but no microSD card slot for memory expansion.

The phone’s 4.0-inch LED-backlit LCD capacitive touchscreen display integrates Sony’s new “WhiteMagic” technology, which makes it perfectly visible under strong sunlight.

Last but not least, Xperia P boasts an impressive 8-meapixel camera with autofocus, LED flash, 3D sweep panorama, image stabilization and full HD (1080p) video recording. There’s also a secondary VGA camera for video calls.
