It does seem as though all decent smartphone manufacturers will need to look into churning out a “mini” version of their flagship in order to keep up with the times, and the folks over at BLU LIFE too, have jumped aboard this particular bandwagon. The BLU LIFE PURE mini would be a compact yet powerful version of the flagship device, the BLU LIFE PURE. This particular smartphone claims to come with a “stunning design and premium build quality”, although at first glance to us, it does not look anything out of the ordinary. I guess beauty is truly in the eye of the beholder.
Just what can we say about the BLU LIFE PURE mini? For starters, it is engineered from a solitary piece polycarbonate using the latest CNC technology, where each of them will be individually hand crafted. Measuring a mere 8.9mm thin, it will feature a 3,000mAh battery to keep it going throughout the day, where a single charge is said to be able to last the average user more than 35 hours. Sounds all right on paper, but that would most probably mean you will need to juice up the handset halfway while you are at work the next day, which could prove to be rather inconvenient at times.
Other hardware specifications of the BLU LIFE PURE mini include a 4.5” HD display with 326 PPI, an advanced 8MP camera at the back which is also capable of Full HD video recording, a quad-core 1.5GHz processor, 16GB of internal memory and 1GB RAM. Expect it to arrive in Matte Black and Polished White shades, where you can pick it up for $249 unlocked alongside Android 4.2 Jelly Bean in tow. [Press Release]
