BLU R2 and R2 LTE now official
The leader of the US market of affordable, unlocked handsets, BLU Products, is back with two new smartphones. The R2 and R2 LTE are the direct successors of the Amazon Prime Exclusive BLU R1 HD. They both use a 5.2-inch HD display and run Android Nougat, although they come with a few differences in the specs department.
Leaving aside the MediaTek MT6737 processor and the 720p display mentioned above, these are the highlights of the R2 and R2 LTE smartphones by BLU Products:
- BLU R2 - 1 GB RAM, 8 GB storage, 8 MP cameras on both sides, 3,000 mAH battery
- BLU R2 LTE - 2 GB and 3 GB RAM, 16 GB and 32 GB storage, 13 MP cameras on both sides, 3,000 mAh, 4G LTE
Sadly, there is no information about the price and launch date of these handsets yet. However, both are listed on Amazon already, so we should wait for them to get a price and shipment date. Considering the excellent prices offered by BLU Products for its handsets, we expect to see the R2 and R2 LTE retailing for less than $150 USD.
