BLU Products is known for cranking out a variety of Android smartphones, and today the company took the wraps off of its newest, which it calls a flagship model.
The BLU Pure XL runs Android 5.1 on a 6-inch 2560x1440 Super AMOLED display, and it’s powered by an octa-core MediaTek Helio X10 processor, which BLU says makes it the first device in the US to have that chipset. The Pure XL also has a beefy rear camera to go along with its high-end screen and processor, boasting a 24-megapixel rear shooter with optical image stabilization, an f/2.0 aperture, real-time HDR, dual LED flash, and phase detection autofocus. BLU’s also giving the device a Magic Focus feature that’ll let you alter the focus of your photos after you take them.
While those are the highlight features of the Pure XL, the rest of its spec list is respectable. Included is 64GB of storage, a microSD slot to add more storage, 3GB of RAM, an 8-megapixel rear camera, a rear fingerprint reader, a 3500mAh battery, and 4G LTE connectivity. The Pure XL also has some audio chops, boasting stereo speakers and high-quality audio support. All of those features are crammed into a metal unibody design.
The Pure XL will launch on Amazon on September 29 at a price of $349. That’s a nice price for a phablet with a high-res screen and octa-core processor. It’s worth noting that the Pure XL lacks band 12 LTE for T-Mobile, but if you’re on AT&T or don’t mind going without T-Mo band 12 LTE, the Pure XL could be worth a look.
