Just a few hours ago we informed you regarding the launch of the VAIO Phone, that’s basically a rebranded Eluga U2 handset. Well, now we get some hands on shots with the device and a confirmation of the $420 price tag.
This midranger is a bit high priced, that’s the truth and frankly speaking its design doesn’t feel special. The handset packs a 5 inch 720p display, 2 GB of RAM and a quad core 1.2 GHz processor. It runs Android 5.0 and it’s made by Japan Communication, that took over the Vaio segment from Sony. This unit relies on a 13 megapixel back camera, a 5 MP front camera and a 2500 mAh battery.
There’s a micro SIM slot on board and the whole thing measures 7.9 mm in thickness, while weighing 130 grams. In Japan, the product can also be bought with payment in installments, 24 of them actually. The device’s OS doesn’t seem customized and the back is glossy, courtesy of a glass panel, if I’m not mistaking. Its edges are rounded and sloped and the camera is placed at the back center area.
