We have seen our fair share of smartphones that hail from BLU in the past, and this time around, here are a couple more devices that you might just want to check out if you want a highly affordable Android-powered device that does not really skimp on the hardware specifications – and they are the BLU Advance 4.0 and BLU Studio 5.0. BLU has been in the US for some time already, selling highly affordable off-contract Android-powered handsets, and these would certainly make the already cheap Motorola Moto G look expensive, relatively speaking. Of course, BLU’s offerings will not be as technologically on par with Motorola’s, but hey, you get what you pay for.
The $139 BLU Studio 5.0 II will come with a 5” 480 x 854 pixel IPS display, a MediaTek MT6572 ARM Cortex-A7 dual-core processor, Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, a 5MP camera at the back and a VGA front-facing camera, 512MB RAM, 4GB of internal memory and a microSD memory card slot.
As for the BLU Advance 4.0, it will cost just $89, sporting a similar processor, wireless capabilities, memory and storage as the Studio 5.0, except that it has a smaller TFT display at 4” at 800 x 480 pixel resolution. Both of these smartphones will arrive in either black or white colors, just in case you were wondering.
