We revealed VAIO Corporation of Japan is preparing to launch a VAIO branded smartphone on March 12. Sony has no involvement since the VAIO brand was sold off to Japan Industrial Partners and relaunched independently.
With imminent launch next week, the retail packaging of the VAIO smartphone surfaced online. We see a simplistic black colored box with VAIO branding on the front. Unfortunately, there are no real images of the VAIO smartphone as yet.
The rumored specs of the VAIO smartphone include a 5-inch 720p display, a 64-bit Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 MSM8916 coupled with 2 GB RAM and 16 GB built-in storage. It will have a 13MP rear camera, a 5MP front camera, and run Android 5.0 Lollipop out of the box.
As of now, there is no information regarding the price of the smartphone or its availability in other regions.Source
