Selfie is the new device whose name says it all. BLU Products is a Miami-based tech company which is trying to enter the lower and mid range smartphone market, in the US. As the name reveals, the main focus will be on the camera functions and quality.
The users are increasingly aware of the camera features and specs, when choosing a device to buy, and its for those users that Blu comes with an answer, since the BLU Selfie is a small-ish phone that presents a front camera what other phones have only on the back, that is 13MP.
Despite that focus, BLU made sure that the other features are not behind the market offer, by using a MediaTek MT6592 octa-core processor supported by 2GB of RAM, 16GB internal storage and will accept microSD expansion as well. These specs are fronted by a throwback 4.7-inch screen with at least HD (720p) quality. The screen is therefore small but very handy, with the size advantage that gives it better pixel density.
Despite the fact that´s US-made, it also includes a dual SIM capability.
As downsides, it will only come with Android KitKat – with no information if Lollipop will be made available in the future. Also, there’s no LTE as well, and LTE is just faster than HSPA+.
All this come with a price of about USD$250, which might be a very good deal if you value these features.
