Miami-based BLU company is a mobile manufacturer appreciated for delivering affordable phones offering a combination of modern design and great performance. After releasing several lower-end smartphones like Studio Touch and R1 HD, the mobile maker is preparing to unveil a new flagship. If to believe recent news, the BLU Pure XR will pack some high-end specs including 4GB RAM and use top quality materials like metal and glass. All these may soon be yours for less than $300, or completely out of charge if you enter the BLU giveaway contest.
In less than two weeks BLU will unveiled its newest flagship for 2016. The BLU Pure XR will deliver 4GB RAM and metal body at a very competitive price.
On its official Facebook profile BLU is teasing us with a new phone, the Pure XR, calling it their latest flagship device. Although the mobile maker describes the handset as a premium smartphone, it isn’t unveiling too many details concerning its specs sheet. All we managed to learn from the post is that the phone will most probably offer 4GB RAM and hit the market labeled with a price tag of $299, which will make it one of the cheapest flagship phones currently available. As for the external design the pics published with the announcement reveal that the device will be a good looker made out of high quality glass and metal though its line may be considered a bit generic by some.
Other than that the BLU Pure XR is also rumored to sport a physical button and a fingerprint scanner, another feature extremely popular among the recently released flagship phones. Even though the manufacturer isn’t too generous in revealing details, knowing that the Pure XR will come with 4GB RAM, we can safely expect its further tech parameters to be equally promising.
Besides some time ago the company’ accidentally posted a list of the Pure XR specs on Amazon.
