These two new affordable handsets come with a MediaTek MT6737 processor inside, next to 1 GB memory and 8 GB storage (R2) or 2 GB RAM and 16 GB storage (R2 LTE), both running Android Nougat out of the box.

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.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
