|Xperia P and Xperia U|
There are still no benchmarks or any proper hands- on review of the said handsets and the wait has just been extended with the announcement of the delay of the shipment of the Xperia U and Xperia P (Xperia Sola might take a bit longer to be released). The release was pushed back to May 27 instead of May 7. That is a lifetime especially that HTC has already released their new One series.
Fortunately, the Xperia NXT series (except the Xperia S) aren't the only ones sporting the new Novathor U8500 chipset. Samsung's new Galaxy S Advance also sports the U8500 and reviews can already be found on that handset.
Grabbing some benchmark screenshots from GSMarena (Thanks!), we can see how the STE Novathor U8500 fares against the competition.
Here the Galaxy S Advance (STE Novathor U8500) is pitted against the Galaxy S II (Exynos 4210) and the Galaxy R (Nvidia Tegra 2).
