The Japanese company Vaio, best known for its laptop lineup, has launched a new Windows Phone (Windows 10 Mobile) smartphone called the Vaio Phone Biz.

The Vaio Phone Biz (VPB0511S) is the second handset the company has ever produced. Vaio had launched the Vaio Phone (VA-10J) last year, which runs on the Android operating system platform.

Vaio says that it will begin selling the smartphone from April in Japan at a price point equivalent of $430 (that’s about 86,000 Naira).

The Viao Phone Biz sports a 5.5-inch full-HD (1080 x 1920 pixels) display coupled with mid-range hardware specifications. It is available in Silver colour variant.

Under the hood, the smartphone is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 617 octa-core SoC clocked at 1.2GHz. This is further paired with 3GB of RAM to offer a great user experience.

It also packs 16GB of inbuilt storage which can be extended via a microSD card slot, by up to 64GB if more space is needed.

The Vaio Phone Biz comes with a 13 megapixel rear camera while a 5 megapixel front facing camera is available for taking pictures and making video calls.

The Windows 10 Mobile phone supports 4G LTE, 3G, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, and other standard connectivity features.

On the software front, the Vaio Phone Biz runs Windows 10 Mobile, the mobile SKU of Microsoft’s latest Windows 10 operating system.

Despite offering mid-range hardware, Vaio says that the smartphone will support Continuum, a feature that allows a user to plug-in the smartphone to a TV, monitor, or a large screen and use it as a computer.

That said, it is considered a rather bold move from Vaio to decide to launch a smartphone which runs on the Windows 10 Mobile operating system.

This is because many considers the platform as new and is seeing a slow adoption in the smartphone market.
