BLU’s latest offering, the Life One X2, is now available for pre-order at their store front on Amazon. The phone comes with either 16GB of storage and 2GB of RAM for $135 or you can get the much better deal 64GB of storage and 4GB of RAM model for $180. That’s a great price for a well appointed budget phone, something that BLU is well known for producing.
As for the specs, it isn’t too shabby. The Life One X2 is a 5.2″ display device that is curved and gives you Full HD rendering. It is protected by Gorilla glass 3 as well. Powering the phone is the Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 processor. That’s an octa-core processor running at 1.4GHz. It’s not the fastest processor out there but keep the price point in mind here folks. As mentioned, the phone has two options from a storage/RAM perspective at 16GB/2GB or 64GB/4GB. That storage can be expanded up to an additional 64GB as it has a MicroSD card slot.
Camera wise, the main camera is a 16MP unit with PDAF (Phased Detection Auto Focus) while the front camera is an 8MP model and it has a front facing flash. The Life One X2 also has a
fingerprint sensor for security, supports Quick Charge 3.0 and is able to work with GSM carriers here in the United States. Sorry Sprint and Verizon customers, it won’t work for you. Here are the supported bands of the phone.
- 4G LTE, (2/4/7/12/17)
- 4G HSPA+ (850/1700/1900/2100)
If you decide to pre-order, the phone won’t ship until October 7th, about two weeks from now. If you haven’t pre-ordered from BLU’s Amazon store, they don’t charge your card until they actually ship the phone. So you can always sign up for a pre-order and if you change your mind before October 7th, cancel it and there is no charge.
