To recall, Sony introduced Vaio back in 1996 and sold it to the investment firm Japan Industrial Partners in 2014. This move took Vaio away from many countries including India. Then in 2018, Nexstgo got the license from the Vaio Corporation to manufacture, sell and market Vaio products in Asia. The company then started selling products in Hong Kong, Macau, Malaysia, Singapore, Taiwan, the Middle East, and now in India.
