A larger version of Sony's VAIO Duo 11 convertible hybrid notebook has been spotted, apparently boasting a 13-inch Full HD touchscreen and the same sliding hinge design turning the slate into a laptop. The unannounced notebook, spotted in a YouTube video (which you can see after the cut), reportedly has a Triluminos touchscreen that works with both finger and stylus contact.

Inside, there's supposedly an Intel Core i5 processor, paired with 4GB of RAM and a 128GB solid-state drive. On the back, Sony has slapped on an 8-megapixel camera using one of its Exmor RS sensors, and there's a backlit keyboard along with NFC.

Other specifications include "ClearAudio+" sound and what Sony is supposedly describing as "ActiveSleep", a power management technology the company attempted to trademark back in February. The unnamed slider - though we'd hazard a guess at Sony VAIO Duo 13, given its smaller stablemate - will apparently run for up to 10hrs on a single charge.

The video was supposedly filmed during internal training at UK tech retail chain Dixons, according to one NotebookReview forum member. While no release information was given, the uploader claims there should be more details in a couple of weeks time.
