BLU has made quite the name for itself over the years by introducing plenty of low to mid-range Android devices that pack worthwhile specifications into a package that’s not too hard on the wallet. That trend continues with the company’s latest smartphone.
BLU has just introduced the Pure XL, a smartphone that boasts a Super AMOLED display that measures in at 6-inches and offers a resolution of 256×1440. Inside the unit, there’s an octa-core MediaTek Helio X10 processor, which BLU says makes the Pure XL the first device to launch with this particular chipset in the United States. There’s also 3GB of RAM, 64GB of built-in storage with a microSD card slot, and a battery that measures in at 3500mAh. It has 4G LTE connectivity, but it doesn’t support T-Mobile’s band 12 LTE.
As far as the camera systems go, BLU has included a 24-megapixel shooter on the back, which features an f/2.0 aperture, optical image stabilization, dual-LED flash, real-time HDR support, and phase detection autofocus. BLU also included what it calls Magic Focus, which will let owners alter the focus in photos after they’ve been taken. On the front, there’s an 8MP camera.
The Pure XL also features stereo speakers with support for high-quality audio, and it rocks a metal unibody design. It’s running Android 5.1 Lollipop out of the box, all for $349.99. It launches on September 29 by way of Amazon.
