BLU introduces Life Series as Amazon exclusive
BLU is a lesser-known smartphone manufacturer in the United States, but they are hoping to change that with the new Life Series smartphones. The company is bringing these phones exclusively to Amazon, and will be holding a nine-day presale between June 10th and June 19th in which customers will receive large price discounts for purchasing.
The BLU Life One smartphone is the smaller of the two with a 5 inch 720p IPS display. It runs on a 64-bit Qualcomm 410 processor and a 13MP camera on the back and 5MP camera on the front. The Life One will also sport 8GB expandable storage and 1GB of RAM. While it will release with Android 4.4 KitKat, the upgrade to Android 5.0 Lollipop will be available at some point in July. Priced at a very reasonable $99 during the presale, the Life One is a great bargain for consumers in need of a powerful yet affordable smartphone.
BLU's Life 8 XL comes with a 5.5 inch IPS display with 720p resolution. The device will run on a Mediatek MT6592 1.4 GHz processor, and the phone will release with an 8MP camera on the back. The camera on the front is 2MP. Similar to the Life One, the Life 8 XL will have 8 GB of expandable storage up to 64 GB, as well as 1GB of RAM. During the presale, this smartphone will sell for an equally impressive $129, which is a very low price considering the capabilities of the device. While both smartphones are aimed at the crowd less willing to spend hundreds on a handset, the Life One and Life 8 XL seem to bring great features for the asking price.
