Vizio is officially entering the smartphone market and is previewing its upcoming Vizio Phone at CES. The new Android-based device may still be in its infancy with hardware and software not production ready yet, but by the looks of its specs and features, it already has a bright future.
Sporting a black glossy front with a gloss black bezel and a back that’s covered in soft material, the new phone is pretty sleek. Its 4-inch LCD screen features 854 x 480 resolution while its insides feature 4GB of storage onboard (it also has a microSD slot, Micro USB port, and HDMI port) and a 1GHz “plus” CPU. The front-facing camera is a 5-megapixel shooter with flash on the back. Also featured will be an IR setup that allows users to use it as a universal remote right out of the bod.
The Vizio Phone is set for a summer release, but no info on carrier or price has been disclosed yet.
