What’s hot?

What’s not?

If you are looking for a phone with fingerprint sensor then this is not the one for you. Also, it does not run on the latest Android version. Like Chinese companies this company too runs on the 5.1 version and has a scheduled update for 6.0 but still not the latest one.


This is a phone that fits in well in the current market in par with the other Chinese phones. Whether it is as reasonable as the Chinese ones can be known sometime later since the price of the phone has not yet been declared.

Design and Body

The display screen seems to be impressive and leaves no area for side bezels making the display more prominent and important. On the back the upper and the lower bezel are marked by a thin line. The rear camera is placed at the left-hand side of the bezel and the flash is on the right of the rear camera. There are capacitive buttons are in the lower bezel in the front. Whether it has its logo imprinted somewhere on the back is not yet clear.

The dimensions of the phone are 5.98 x 2.94 x 0.27 inches ( 151.9 x 74.6 x 6.9 mm ) and weighs around 142.6 gms which is on the lower side.


The display comes in a generous 5.5 inches and has a screen resolution of 720 x 1280 pixels. It has pixel density of 267ppi. The screen to body percentage is at a decent 73.6%. BLU has also added the multi-touch feature to this phone. The display type is AMOLED with a capacitive touchscreen.

Camera and Storage
