BLU Vivo X now official, 2:1 display and quad cameras in tow
Earlier this month, the BLU Vivo X silently surfaced on Amazon, but without being available for purchase. Now, BLU Products also issued a press release that announces its launch and an introductory limited time offer for just US$199.99 "for the lucky initial buyers." However, it looks like that initial stock is already gone, and the Amazon product page displays the "Temporarily out of stock" message once again.
The specs have not changed since the last time we heard about the Vivo X. Its dual main camera combines a 13 MP sensor with f/2.0 aperture with a 5 MP sensor, while the front "Super Selfie" camera duo brings together a 20 MP Sony IMX376 sensor with f/2.0 aperture and an 8 MP one. The 6-inch display has a rather low resolution of 1,440 x 720 pixels, but uses the 2:1 widescreen ratio that seems to quickly become ubiquitous nowadays.
On the inside, there is a MediaTek Helio P25 processor, next to 4 GB RAM, 64 GB internal storage, and a 4,010 mAh battery with 5 V/2 A fast charging (less than 120 minutes for a full charge). Sadly, the BLU Vivo X comes with Android 7.0 Nougat onboard and it might take a while for Android Oreo to reach it.
Right now, the BLU Vivo X is listed on Amazon for 17 percent less than the list price of US$299.99. Those interested can order it now for US$249.99 and they will receive the phablet as soon as it becomes available. The only color available is black, unfortunately.
