Florida-based Blu is known for delivering devices offering respectful specs-to-price ratio. This time the company decided to try their chances on the ruggedized phone sector. Called the Blu Rank Xtreme 5.0 the Blu’s newest offering that can really take a beating as it comes dressed in a heavy duty rubber armor.

Earlier today, Blu unveiled its latest smartphone. The new release is something a bit different from what we used to expect from the company in the past. Just as always, the phone is oriented towards budget-conscious customers, but this time it also targets at those who need a heavy-duty device for special tasks.
As the name suggest, the Blu Tank Xtreme 5.0 is a real tank in the phone industry. Being as indestructible as the Sherman M4, the phone has been equipped with an extra durable armor made out of rubber finished with a special shock-absorbent frame. Furthermore, the body shell of the device comes tagged with an IP65 military certification proving its water and dust resistance. All those along with the Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protecting the phone’s display against cracks and scratches make the device a perfect companion to all adventure lovers.
When it comes to the specs, the Tank Xtreme 5.0’s solid armor hides some really decent mid-range hardware. Housing a 5-inch 1280x720p HD screen panel the phone comes driven by a quad-core 1.3GHz MediaTek 6580 processor coupled with a Mali-400 GPU in charge of graphics, 1GB RAM and 8GB of internal storage. Thankfully, this pretty basic storage may be easily expanded up to 64GB using microSD cards. Running Android 6.0 Marshmallow the device is kept on by a 3,000 mAh battery promised to last up to 2.5 days on a single charging. In the optics department the handset offers two 5MP front and back cameras, while its connectivity options are represented by Wi-Fi, 4G LTE and Bluetooth 4.0.
Pricing and Availability
Perhaps the presented above specs aren’t the most supreme one, but if you value reliability over a fast processor and razor sharp optics then the Blue Tank Xtreme 5.0 is a phone proper to you. The phone’s biggest advantage over its competitors is the fact that except for an affordable pricing, it can withstand all the hostile conditions that may occur on its way. Dressed in black the phone is already available for $129.99 via Amazon which is an exclusive distributor at least at this moment.
