BLU G91 Max: Budget smartphone launched with a 108 MP primary camera, 8 GB of RAM and wireless charging support
BLU has revealed the G91 Max, the company's most powerful smartphone to date. Still, the G91 Max only packs the MediaTek Helio G95, a 12 nm SoC with two ARM Cortex-A76 cores, six Cortex-A55 cores and a Mali-G76 MP4 GPU. Additionally, the chipset relies on a 4G modem, rather than a 5G one. Ultimately, the Helio G95 is an upgraded version of the Helio G90 and Helio G90T found in the G91 Pro and G90 Pro.
Additionally, BLU equips the G91 Max with 8 GB of RAM, 128 GB of expandable storage, a 3.5 mm headphone jack and a USB Type-C port. Also, the smartphone has a 6.8-inch IPS display that has a 20.5:9 aspect ratio and a native 1080p resolution (2,460 x 1,080). The display peaks at 60 Hz too, rather than 90 Hz or 120 Hz as some budget smartphones do these days.
Moreover, the G91 Max relies on a 108 MP primary camera, a 5 MP ultra-wide-angle camera and dual 2 MP sensors for capturing depth of field and macro information. Meanwhile, the device has a 16 MP front-facing camera that sits beneath a punch-hole in the G91 Max's large display. Unfortunately, BLU ships the G91 Max with Android 11 and has not included an NFC module. However, the smartphone has a 5,000 mAh battery that it can recharge at up to 18 W with a wired connection or 10 W if you have a compatible wireless charger.
Currently, the BLU G91 Max retails for US$179.99 in Sky Blue and Spectrum Grey, US$70 less than its list price. BLU notes that the smartphone is compatible with T-Mobile, Metro PCS and others in the US, but not AT&T, Cricket or other CDMA networks.
