Vaio Phone (VA-10J) hopes to make it without Sony branding

Smartphone buyers can now consider going for the new Vaio Phone (VA-10J), as it has just been launched in Japan equipped with a 64-bit processor and Android 5.0 Lollipop. This new device is being sold via a carrier named b-mobile at 51000 Yen which translates into Rs 26300.

That’s a pretty high asking price, especially since this handset is nothing but a rebranded Panasonic Eluga U2. Yes, both these companies have branded the same white label device, and yet, Panasonic is selling it at a very low cost than what the VAIO Phone is being offered at.
