While I am quite sure that many of us have already opened up all of the present that were placed under the tree for the past week or so, how many of them happen to be a smartphone? BLU Products intends to take the Samsung route it seems – that is, to release as many different kinds of models possible where new smartphones are concerned in order to cater to the different number of wants, desires and budget of folks out there.
BLU might not have the brand recognition of bigger companies such as Samsung and Apple, but the American phone-maker has carved out a nice niche for itself selling budget-friendly unlocked smartphones. Now, it’s offering three new handsets with the Studio 6.0 LTE, Studio 5.0 HD LTE and Studio Mini LTE. At the high-end, BLU’s Studio 6.0 LTE packs a 6-inch 1080p display, a quad-core Snapdragon 400 processor, a 13-megapixel rear camera, a 5-megapixel front-facing camera, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of expandable storage and a 3200mAh battery. It runs Android 4.4 KitKat out of the box and comes in black or white for $279 unlocked. Next up is the Studio 5.0 LTE, which offers a 5-inch 720p display. It also packs the same processor and cameras as its bigger brother, along with 1GB of RAM, 8GB of expandable storage and a 2200mAh battery. It runs Android 4.4 KitKat and costs $200 unlocked from Amazon.
