Bluboo D1 coming as the first Android handset with Snapdragon 835
Now that the latest top-of-the-line SoC by Qualcomm is official, everyone is expecting for the first Snapdragon 835-powered handsets to show up. Two of the big names on the list are Xiaomi and Oppo, but it looks like Bluboo's D1 might arrive before the Mi 6 and Find 9, thus grabbing the "first Android phone with Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 inside to reach the market" badge.
While most of the details are unknown for now, a recent press release reveals a few strong points of this upcoming handset. Bluboo D1 promises to integrate a dual camera setup on both front and back, also packing "a true edgeless design" that offers "unprecedented visual enjoyment." We expect at least 6 GB memory and 64 GB storage space as well, all with Android Nougat on top.
For now, Bluboo "are making active preparations for the D1, and it would probably appear ahead of Xiaomi Mi 6 and OPPO Find 9" but there is no launch date to talk about yet. However, since we hear that Xiaomi Mi 6 could land in late February, Bluboo D1 must arrive in the first part of next month to become the first Snapdragon 835 phone as promised. We will keep an eye on this story as it develops, so stay tuned.
