The 5-inch smartphones will carry fingerprint readers, up to 4 GB RAM, and Sony Exmor cameras.

Chinese manufacturer Bluboo will soon announce the 5-inch Xtouch X500 and Xtouch X500 Pro smartphones. Current leaked images show a design somewhat similar to the Samsung Galaxy Edge, but without the curved display. Its glossy front and back are also attractive on camera and will likely suffer from easy smudges and fingerprints like the glass Galaxy Note 5.

The X500 Pro version will be the more powerful variant. Otherwise, both models will reportedly sport the same chassis and integrated fingerprint reader on the dedicated Home button.

Specifications so far are as follows:

Xtouch X500

  • 5-inch FHD display
  • MediaTek MTK6753
  • 3 GB LPDDR4
  • 16 GB eMMC
  • 13 MP rear camera + 5 MP front camera (Sony IMX214)
  • 3050 mAh battery

Xtouch X500 Pro

  • 5-inch FHD display
  • MediaTek MT6795 (Helio X10)
  • 4 GB LPDDR4
  • 64 GB eMMC
  • 20.7 MP rear camera + 8 MP front camera (Sony IMX220)
  • 3050 mAh battery

It's worth noting that the Sony Exmor IMX214 can also be found on the Moto G 2015 and Nexus 6, while the IMX220 can be found on the Xperia Z2 and Meizu MX5.

The Bluboo Xtouch X500 will be available later this month and the Xtouch X500 Pro will follow later this year. Launch prices have yet to be announced.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
