One of the world's thinnest 4G LTE handsets is now up for pre-order, while shipments will begin September 22nd.

The Vivo Air handset unveiled by BLU Products back in early 2015 at CES only featured 3G connectivity, although its product page mentioned "4G 850/900/2100" as one of its highlights. Now, a slightly different Vivo Air smartphone is up for pre-order, but featuring a Qualcomm Snapdragon processor and 4G LTE connectivity.

BLU Vivo Air LTE has the following specs and features:

  • Processor: 64-bit, 1.2 GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 SoC with Adreno 306 graphics
  • Memory/Storage: 2 GB RAM; 16 GB internal storage, but no microSD slot
  • Display: 4.8-inch Super AMOLED touchscreen with 1,280X720 pixels, 306 ppi, and Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection
  • Cameras: 5 MP front, 8 MP back with autofocus and LED flash, capable of [email protected] fps video (Sony sensor)
  • Connectivity: 4G LTE, WiFi 802.11 b/g/n with hotspot, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS, FM radio, micro USB
  • Operating system: Android 5.0 Lollipop
  • Battery: 2050 mAh
  • Weight/Dimensions: 0.22 pounds; 5.58X2.68X0.2 inches

This handset is entirely made using aircraft-grade aluminum alloy and will be available in white and black. According to the pre-order page on Amazon, shipments will begin on September 22. For now it looks like the white version is not available yet, but its pre-order page might show up in a few days as well. The pre-order price of the black Vivo Air LTE is $199 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.
