Miami-based smartphone manufacturer BLU has launched two new budget-friendly smartphones: the Studio Energy 2 and Energy X. Both are now available for purchase on Amazon - while the former carries a price tag of $179.00, the latter will set you back $109.00.
Specs-wise, the Studio Energy 2 (shown above) - which is the successor to the Studio Energy smartphone launched earlier this year - is powered by a MediaTek MT6735 chipset with quad-core 1.3 GHz Cortex-A53 CPU and Mali-T720 GPU, and sports a 5.0-inch 720p Super AMOLED display.
The handset comes with 1.5GB RAM and 16GB expandable internal memory, and packs in a huge 5000 mAh battery. In terms of camera, the Studio Energy 2 features an 8MP rear unit and a 5MP front shooter. Measuring 144 x 71.2 x 10.1 mm and weighing in at 176 gms, it runs Android 5.0 Lollipop operating system, and is available in Midnight Grey and Ceramic White with Rose Gold color options.
On the other hand, the Energy X is powered by a MediaTek 6580 SoC with quad-core 1.3 GHz Cortex-A7 processor, and sports a 5.0-inch 720p IPC LCD display. It comes with 1GB RAM and 8GB expandable internal memory, and packs in a big 4000 mAh battery.
In terms of camera, the Energy X features and 8MP rear unit and a 2MP front shooter. Measuring 142 x 70 x 8.9 mm and weighing in at 154 gms, it, however, runs Android version 5.1, and is available in Midnight Grey and Luxury Gold color options.
The only problem with Blu is that they abandon these phones upon release. I seriously doubt that the older Blu Studio Energy will see 5.0/5.1 (let alone Android 6.0), since they released pretty much the same phone with Android 5.0/5.1. I'm surprised ...
just dont add too much bloat and if BLU maintains 95% same as stock android then they can sell these in large numbers.
better camera plz....
