VAIO is geared up to launch its first windows 10-driven smartphone. The handset was announced earlier this year, in February. Phone Biz is VAIO’s first foray into the smartphone business.

VAIO is no longer a Sony brand as the Japanese mammoth sold it off some time back. The company, however, is still producing personal computers.

VAIO announced Windows 10-based smartphone in February, which has finally been released for purchase in the company’s home country now.

The latest Windows-10 powered smartphone dubbed VAIO Phone Biz has a metallic build. The body of the handset is made up of aluminum.

The smartphone comes with a full HD 5.5-inch display with 1080×1920p screen resolution. Vaio Phone Biz is fueled by octa-core Snapdragon 617 SoC by Qualcomm along with Adreno 418 GPU for enhanced graphics.

The most remarkable feature of the handset is the Continuum support which will allow the Phone Biz users to connect the smartphone to any large screen like a monitor or TV and thus use the device.

The handset measures 77.0×156.1×8.3mm and weighs 167g. Connectivity choices include 4G LTE, WIFI 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, GPS and Bluetooth 4.0.
