VAIO may not be a name you usually associate to the smartphone world, but as a popular maker of laptops they are a name you may be familiar with.
The name has strong links to Sony as the many laptops and netbooks were launched with the manufacturer but now Sony only owns 5% of VAIO and it looks like they are setting their sights in the smartphone world.
In an event scheduled for 12th March VAIO will be unveiling their first foray into the smartphone market with the VAIO smartphone.
VAIO Smartphone Specifications
So far all we have is rumours and speculations to give us an inkling as to what to expect from this smartphone.
From all the information it looks as though the VAIO smartphone will sit among the mid-range smartphones on the market with a 5-inch display, 64-bit Snapdragon 410 processor and 2GB RAM.
There is expected to be 16GB of on board memory along with a microSD card slot for expansion and 13-megapixel camera on the back for taking photos and recording video clips.
The front facing camera is expected to have a resolution of 5-megapixels so selfie shots and video calls will be of a decent quality.
As this is all speculation we just have to take this as a loose guide to what will finally make it onto the final VAIO smartphone.
VAIO Smartphone Design
The images that have been released so far of the VAIO phone are only renders so we can only guess as to the final appearance of the smartphone.
The laptop and netbook designs are know for being among the most stylish so we should expect to see some good looks translate down to the smartphone too.
The recent leaked images make the VAIO look similar to the Xperia range but as this is VAIO’s own venture without Sony we wouldn’t expect a complete copy.
As the official launch will take place later today we would expect to see the phone in stores as soon as April so if you are a fan of the VAIO brand you can check out the smartphone soon.
