The First VAIO Android Smartphone

In case you are wondering, Sony no longer owns the "VAIO" brand. It has been sold to Japan Industrial Partners. This company has then introduced the first ever VAIO Phone, which is basically a midrange Android smartphone with a hefty price tag. Interestingly, it is just a rebranded Panasonic Eluga U2 smartphone.

Like the Eluga U2, the VAIO Phone comes with a 5-inch 720p HD IPS display, a quad-core 1.2 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 chipset, 2GB RAM, and 16GB of expandable internal storage. There is also a 13-MP rear camera with LED flash and a 5-MP front-facing camera. The smartphone runs Android 5.0 Lollipop without much customization, offering near stock Android experience. Battery capacity is pegged at 2,500 mAh. The smartphone measures 141.5 mm x 71.3 mm x 7.95 mm and weighs 130 grams. For a midrange device, it is absurdly priced at $420. Good news is that it may not even leave the Japanese archipelago.

Til then...
