We have seen quite a number of phone makers enter the Malaysian market recently. There were Oukitel, Infinix, and even Meizu to a certain extent. Now, American-based phone maker Blu is joining the fray. However, unlike other brands, Blu is entering our market with a slew of smartphones. Ten of them, to be specific.
Out of the 10 smartphones launched, the RM1,799 Blu Pure XR – the company’s flagship phone – is the most interesting of the bunch. It features a 5.5-inch 1080p Super AMOLED display, a MediaTek Helio P10 processor paired with 4GB of RAM, 64GB of expandable storage, 16MP rear and 8MP front-facing cameras, a fingerprint sensor, as well as a 3,000mAh battery.
A tier down is the RM1,399 Blu Vivo 6. Much like the Pure XR, the Vivo 6 is also powered by a MediaTek Helio P10 processor. It also comes with a 5.5-inch 1080p display, 4GB of RAM, 64GB of expandable storage, and a 3,130mAh battery. In the camera department, the Vivo 6 has a 16MP rear camera and an 8MP front-facing shooter.
Launched alongside these two phones are eight other Blu devices priced at almost every possible price point. We’ll list them all below for easy reference:
- Blu Vivo 5R (RM1,059)
- Blu Vivo XL 2 (RM899)
- Blu Life Max (RM599)
- Blu Studio G HD LTE (RM459)
- Blu Energy Diamond (RM439)
- Blu Grand M (RM369)
- Blu Vivo 5 Mini (RM299)
- Blu Diamond M (RM299)
