5.5-inch BLU Vivo XL 3 hits Amazon with Android Oreo onboard
BLU Products has finally managed to join the large crowd of brands that have at least one Android Oreo device on the market with the help of the new Vivo handset. The third Vivo XL phone is simply known as the BLU Vivo XL 3 (sometimes referred to as the Vivo XL3, but it is just one model) and, leaving the up-to-date operating system aside, there is not too much that recommends it as a worthy mid-ranger.
The BLU Vivo XL 3 comes with a quad-core MediaTek MT6737 processor onboard, next to 3 GB RAM, 32 GB internal storage, microSD support up to 64 GB, a 13 MP selfie shooter and a 13 MP main camera, facial recognition capabilities, a rear-mounted fingerprint reader, 4G LTE connectivity with compatibility with all major US GSM networks, such as T-Mobile, AT&T, Cricket Wireless, MetroPCS, Straight Talk, and more. The 5.5-inch display has a 2:1 ratio, but it only offers a resolution of 1,440 x 720 pixels. At last, we should also mention the 3,000 mAh battery that can be charged in less than 1.5 hours by using the 5V 2A quick charger included in the retail package.
Those interested can order the BLU Vivo XL 3 from Amazon already, although this phone does not have an official product page on www.BluProducts.com yet. The price tag reads US$189.99, with free shipping included. The retail package might lack a protective case, but it includes a pair of headphones and a screen protector alongside the usual mains charger and charging/data cable.
