American smartphone maker, BLU Products today unveiled its latest flagship smartphone the BLU Vivo X. With a modern 18:9 aspect ratio display, Face Unlock, quad cameras and a large battery on board, the Vivo X will certainly attract the attention of customers on the budget.
The new product is available on Amazon for $299.99, but for a limited time, initial buyers will be able to get it for $199.99.
BLU Vivo X brings the flagship experience at a bargain
The phone takes advantage of a bezel-less 6-inch 18:9 screen with HD+ resolution (1440 x 720 pixels) with Gorilla Glass 3 protection. It relies on a 64-bit octa-core MediaTek Helio P25 chipset clocked at 2.6GHz. With 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage on board, the phone offers a overall seamless user experience.
The BLU Vivo X was obviously designed as a tool for selfie enthusiasts. With this in mind, the mobile device includes a dual “super” selfie camera configuration with a 20-megapixel main sensor with f/2.0 aperture coupled with a secondary 8-megapixel 120-degree wide angle sensor that lets you fit more into your pictures.
On the front, the flagship pairs a 13-megapixel sensor with f/2.0, phase detection autofocus and laser focus with a 5-megapixel camera for depth of field. Users will also be able to record video in slow motion and shoot panoramas. What’s more, you can adjust the depth of field and get the bokeh on your photos.
Another selling point of the BLU Vivo X is the 4,010 mAh battery with Ultra-Fast 5V/2A fast charging capabilities. The producing company promises you will be able to charge your phone to 100% in less than 120 minutes. An Extreme Power Saving Mode lets you persevere what little battery you have left, in emergency scenarios.
Other features include a fast fingerprint sensor, facial recognition (unlock your phone with your face) and Maxx Audio Sound Enhancement for a superior audio experience. The only thing we don’t like about the BLU Vivo X is that it runs Android 7.0 Nougat.
