Last year, manufacturer Sony sold its Vaio brand to the Japan Industrial Partners investment fund, which renamed it VAIO Corporation. If laptops with the Vaio label have come as no surprise, the new owner has announced his intention to use the one that is synonymous with high-end in the eyes of consumers. This is how a Vaio smartphone, whose presentation is also expected this Thursday March 12.

And while we imagined such a product staying at home, now our colleagues from the Techblog site talk about a distribution on the European market. See you tomorrow to find out for sure and maybe find a price in euros for this smartphone positioned on the small mid-range.
This smartphone for the moment known through its JCI VA-10J reference would indeed offer the SoC Snapdragon 410 from Qualcomm with its 64-bit quad-core processor associated with a 2 GB RAM and its category 4G / LTE modem ( up to 150 Mbit / s in reception). He would also have a screen 5 inch in a definition of 1280 x 720 pixels, 5 and 13 Megapixel photo sensors, 16 GB flash memory and the system Android 5.0 Lollipop. In short, nothing really transcendent for a brand known through premium products. Hopefully, a model with a slightly more attractive technical data sheet will not be long in coming. Because models like this, this is clearly not what is missing in our regions.
