BLU Products unveiled two 5.5-inch Android handsets at CES, both offering premium looks, mid-range features, and very attractive prices. The BLU Vivo 5 and Vivo XL feature Super AMOLED screens, octa-core MediaTek processors, as well as metal unibody design with color options that include gold and silver.

Both handsets are powered by a 1.3 GHz MediaTek 6753 SoC and have a 5.5-inch Super AMOLED multitouch display with a very low resolution for its size - only 1,280X720 pixels. While the Vivo XL has 2 GB RAM and 16 GB internal storage, the Vivo 5 uses 3 GB RAM and 32 GB internal storage, both offering a microSD card slot as well. The operating system loaded is Android 5.1 Lollipop, while the connectivity features include WiFi 802.11 a/b/g/n, GPS, Bluetooth 4.0, as well as 4G LTE. The Vivo XL has a 13 MP main camera and a 5 MP one on the front while the specs of its siblings' cameras are not public yet (it would not be a surprise to have the same cameras).

BLU Vivo 5 is expected to hit Amazon and BestBuy next month, priced at $199 USD and available in white silver and solid gold. The Vivo XL will go on sale later this month for $50 USD less, but offering more color choices - chrome silver, midnight blue, rose gold, and liquid gold.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
