In a bid to enter the smartphone market, Sony’s VAIO Corporation has now announced a phone through Japanese MVNO B-mobile.
The 7.95mm thick smartphone running Android 5.0 is a Nexus 4 look alike and features a 1.2GHz quad-core processor, a 5-inch 720p display, and a 13-megapixel camera, The Verge reported.
The phone being a mid-range affair has a glass back panel with a staid black front. It seems the phone would certainly not make it to the US or Japan market but could be a choice for VAIO lovers.
The Japanese site Blog of Mobile claims that the smartphone is nearly identical to a Panasonic Eluga U 2 available in Taiwan.
VAIO’s entry in the smartphone market is going to be intriguing as Sony struggles to maintain its reputation.
