As we approach the launch of the Sony Xperia S, we're starting to see more details of how Sony has refined its software experience for its new flagship product. Two videos leaked today over on XperiaBlog show that much of the user interface -- dubbed UXP NXT -- has been given a lick of paint. The gallery, music player and TimeScape features in particular being dramatically changed, with plenty of animations and 3D effects throughout. Underneath all the visual finery, though, the Xperia S still runs on Android 2.3 Gingerbread, although an ICS update is expected shortly after launch.

The Xperia S is due to launch in Europe from early March. In the U.S., AT&T will carry the Xperia Ion, a device closely based on the Xperia S, but with a larger 4.7-inch display.

We're expecting to see more of the Xperia S, along with rumored devices including the Xperia P and Xperia U, at Sony's Mobile World Congress press conference in just under a week.

We've got both videos after the break.
