VAIO smartphone to arrive March 12 w/ 64-bit CPU, Android Lollipop

It looks like a VAIO-branded smartphone is currently in the pipeline and should arrive early next month according to Japan Communications. This handset is said to carry midrange specs like a 5-inch HD display, a 64-bit processor, while running on Android 5.0 out of the box.


VAIO (JCI VA-10J) initial specs:
5-inch HD display @ 1280 x 720 resolution
1.2GHz 64-bit Snapdragon 410 quad-core processor
16GB storage
13MP rear camera
5MP front camera
Android Lollipop

The phone should be officially launched on March 12, but we may get a glimpse of it this coming MWC 2015 during the first week of March. With its specs similar to other handsets in the same category, would you consider getting this VAIO-branded smartphone instead?

    mahirap umasa na darating sa pinas yan
    Nung nabenta ng Sony yung VAIO japan market lang focus nila.
    Maganda sana pag napunta sa pinas to at pati yung ibang japanese phones like Sharp Crystal at Crystal X

  2. I hope the handset Sony Vaio will reach the Philippines market.

      If Sony still owns VAIO
      but Sony already sold VAIO to a japanese company focusing on japanese market.
      So the possibility of this VAIO phone reaching Philippines is very low

      sayang pero vaio is not a part of sony anymore.
      matagal na nilang nabenta yang division na yan so para separate company/brand na ang vaio.
      at mula nung nahiwalay ang vaio sa sony wala ng international relase ng vaio laptops puros sa japan lang. kaya baka hindi rin umabot yan dito. sana mali ako at makarating yan sa pinas

    hmmm galing sa sony yang vaio ah mukhang makakalaban ng sony and vaio sa japanese market.
    pero sana dumating din dito yan sa pinas para mag mura mga xperia phones

      Yung SONY benenta ang VAIO sa japanese company. Ang sony baka mag close na sila sa smartphone industry.

    Just to clarify, VAIO isn’t a Sony brand anymore, though I believe Sony still has shares and still sells VAIO products in their stores. Just like what qaz said, Sony (and VAIO) focuses their market sa Japan, so I doubt makakarating to sa Pinas. I hope whoever is writing these articles (or copy-pasting them) would be kind enough to at least add these bits of information sa articles nila. Just my .2$

  5. Well, you can always ask Kazuto from KyoEx if he can make arrangements for a pre-order of one of these badboys. Hope it’s not AU locked though :|
