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.

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.
