Vaio has launched a Windows 10 powered device in Japan called the Phone Biz. The device is priced at 50,000 yen, which is about Rs. 29,000. Unlike the plastic build of the Lumia 950, and 950 XL, the Vaio Phone Biz comes with a silver-finished aluminum build. The phone houses a 5.5-inch full HD display and is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 617 processor with 3GB of RAM. At the back is a 13MP primary camera with a 5MP front facing camera. The device comes with 16GB of onboard storage which can be expanded by up to 64Gb via a microSD card. The Vaio Phone Biz supports Windows 10's Continuum feature. It is not known if and when the phone will be launched outside of Japan.

Microsoft may be dependent on other OEMs releasing Windows powered devices this year as rumours suggest that the Lumia 650 may be the only Lumia device to be launched this year. It is already speculated that Xiaomi will be showcasing a Windows 10 powered variant of its upcoming flagship, the Mi 5 at World Mobile Congress event in Barcelona. The phone may come with the same specifications as its Android powered counterpart like the Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor and maybe even a 5.2-inch QHD display. It is possible that HP may also launch a Windows 10 powered device at MWC 2016. A device called the HP Falcon was spotted on GFXBench and the listing suggested that the device may come with a Snapdragon 820 processor and a 5.8-inch QHD display

A few days ago, Vaio had announced three high-end laptops, the Vaio Z Flip, Vaio Z Clamshell, and the Vaio S. The Vaio Z comes with a 13-inch QHD display that can be flipped all the way around. It also has an aluminium casing and is powered by Intel’s i7 Skylake processor and there is also an option for an i5 processor.
