The BLU Pure View was silently introduced last week on Amazon with an 18:9 display, 5V/2A quick charge, face unlock, and a dual front camera setup onboard. However, this 5.7-inch handset is only powered by the outdated MediaTek MT6753 octa-core processor.

BLU Products continues to silently introduce new handsets that provide a rich set of features for a fair price, although sometimes they mess up the software updates. The latest arrival is the BLU Pure View, a 5.7-inch handset with an 18:9 display that surfaced at the end of last week on Amazon but still cannot be found anywhere on the website of the US company based in Miami.

Unfortunately, the 5.7-inch, 18:9 display does not stand out when it comes to its resolution, offering only 1,440 x 720 pixels. While the 13 MP main camera is quite standard for an affordable Android smartphone, the dual 8 MP front camera setup with flash might help the BLU Pure View draw some attention. Sadly, the list of hardware specs includes the quite outdated MediaTek MT6753 processor, next to a reasonable 3 GB RAM, 32 GB internal storage, and microSD support up to 64 GB.

In addition to the above, the Amazon product page also mentions 5V/2A fast charging, face recognition, a rear-mounted fingerprint reader, and compatibility with AT&T, Cricket, MetroPCS, T-Mobile, Straight Talk, and other US carriers.

The price of the BLU Pure View is US$199.99, but it looks like Amazon already got rid of the first batch or the first batch still has to be released. The battery capacity and the Android version installed seem to be unknown at this time, but we expect at least a 3,500 mAh power pack and Android 7.0 Nougat

We will get back to the Pure View as soon as it gets an official launch, or at least a major software update. We can only hope that this update will be one that leaves a functional phone after being installed.

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.
