One month after the Android Nougat-driven BLU Vivo X got listed on Amazon, the US-based company BLU Products is back with a 5.5-inch handset that runs Android Oreo out of the box. The BLU Vivo XL 3 has a 2:1 ratio display, a single 13 MP camera on the back, 3 GB RAM, 32 GB internal storage, and uses a quad-core MediaTek MT6737 processor. Its price tag reads US$189.99.

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.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
