There was a series of phones I always found interesting, but I find they never really got the attention they deserved. That series was the BLU series of devices. Now they have recently announced the Life Pure XL smartphone, a phone which is based on the Gionee Elife E7 ( the two being actually virtually identical, which isn’t really a bad thing as they look great ).
The Life Pure XL has a 5.5 inch screen with a 1080p resolution display which is protected by a sheen of Corning Gorilla Glass 3. Hardware-wise, the phone will have a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 S0C with a 2.2 GHz Quad-Core CPU and an Adreno 330 GPU. The camera on this device is a 16 mega-pixel one with a 1.34μ pixel size, a 1/2.3-inch sensor, an 8 MP front-facing camera with autofocus ( this is kind of hard to believe, but I’ll give them the benefit of the doubt ). The battery will be a 2500 mAh battery and the software version will only be Android 4.2 ( however, it will be upgrade-able to 4.4 ).
The BLU Life Pure XL will be sold in two different versions – one with 32 GB of internal storage and 3 GB of RAM for 400 dollars, and one with 16 GB of internal memory and 2 GB of RAM for 350 dollars. The 32 GB and 3 GB of RAM model is said to go on sale on May 2 exclusively on Amazon in Black and on May 9 in White. The other lower-end version will be available in June and it will come out in Black, White, Blue and Pink.
