I wouldn’t be surprised if you haven’t heard of the company, BLU products, because I have never heard of them before today as well. However, BLU has just announced that they will be releasing a pretty affordable smartphone in January.
The smartphone, titled the Vivo 4.65, will be priced at $300 off contract (similar to the LG Nexus 4 8GB, but without the same awesome specs).
So what kind of specs can you expect. Let’s see:
- 4.65-inch HD Super AMOLED display
- 1.2GHz A9 cortex dual-core processor
- 1GB RAM
- 8MP rear-facing camera
- Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich
- Dual-sim card support
Those are the only specs made available for us right now, but of course we’ll find out more very soon. These specs won’t wow you, but they aren’t terrible specs. It’s also relatively cheap for an unlocked phone.
However, in my opinion, if you don’t mind buying a slightly used phone, I would much rather opt for the Samsung Galaxy Nexus.
With the Galaxy Nexus, at least you’ll have access to Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, and you’ll know you’re getting a quality product as compared to the mystery of Blu’s Vivo 4.65-inch smartphone.
What are your opinions. Would you give the BLU Vivo 4.65 a chance?
