VAIO Phone breaks cover - a sterile-looking mid-ranger with an exorbitant price tag

Posted on 12th Mar 2015 @ 9:34 AM

Since the time that Sony sold its VAIO image, we've been listening to gossipy tidbits that Japan Industrial Partners, the purchaser of the brand, is planning to dispatch its own particular line of cell phones that will bear the VAIO name. The first should break cover in Japan today, and it did for sure - the VAIO Phone is here!

Best case scenario, its a humble-looking mid-officer that is toting a not really reasonable sticker and apparently does not accompany a genuine show-halting peculiarity. The same can be said in regards to its specs - we have a 5-crawl 720p presentation at the front, a quad-center 1.2GHz chipset (most presumably a Snapdragon 410 MSM8916 one), 2GB of RAM, and in addition a 13MP cam at the back.

The telephone is running on Android 5.0 Lollipop, damaged by no custom UI and giving you to a just about stock Android client experience. Perusing the specs sheet and looking at the clean, to a degree sterile outside configuration, you'd presumably envision that the VAIO Phone will be displaying a very moderate sticker, correct?

Off-base! The handset will cost you 51,000 yen, which is generally $420. The telephone will dispatch on March 20 in Japan and will most likely stay a neighborhood elite.
