Frankly, Sony hasn’t done much to stem the flow of Xperia U leaks pre-MWC, so we can’t say we were all too surprised when the handset made its debut on stage today in Barcelona. The 3.5-inch phone offers up a Reality Display, a 1GHz dual-core processor and five megapixel camera. According to Sony, the handset should get up to six and a half hours of talk time and will, sadly, be rocking Gingerbread at launch, though for what it’s worth, a planned upgrade to ICS has been announced. The Xperia S’s younger sibling will be hitting shelves some time in Q2. We’ll be sure to give some hands-on impressions of the forthcoming phone as soon as humanly possible.
