Not too long ago, Sony sold off its VIAO division to Japan Industrial Partners in order to focus on its attention on developing premium handsets.
Since then, the new owners have already launched two laptop models, the VAIO Pro and VAIO Fit, but it seems that they're now ready to unveil a handset later this month.
Previous media reports have claimed that VIAO would launch a new smartphone on March 12. Now, according to the latest report, a Vaio-branded handset has recently been certified in Japan. The Vaio Android smartphone will launch as the Vaio VA-10J and it will come with a 5 inch HD display with a resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels.
Other specifications in the Vaio VA-10J will include a Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 quad-core processor (64-bit) and the device will also include 2GB of RAM and 16GB of included storage. The phone will also offers a 13-megapixel rear camera a 5-megapixel front-facing shooter. It will run on Android 5.0 lollipop out of the box.
We're not given a whole lot of details about the new handset, although some photos of its retail packaging have been released. Meanwhile, reports indicate that device will come with a moderate price tag, so we shouldn't be expecting to see Vaio unveil a flagship handset just yet.
