BLU has just unveiled the 7-inch BLU Studio 7.0 LTE unlocked phablet available at $199. It is an improvement over last year’s model and is available today on Amazon. The device is an oversized unlocked smartphone with fairly low specs and a compact design. According to BLU Products’ press release, the device is still compact enough to make one hand operation possible, despite the massive 7-inch display. The market trend shows that the demand for larger screen smartphones is increasing, and smartphones with 5.5-inches screen and higher are no longer called phablets as they have set a new smartphone display standard. If you would like an unlocked smartphone with the form factor of a compact tablet, and you are on a tight budget then the BLU Studio 7.0 LTE might be a great fit for you.
The specs of the device include a 7-inch HD (1280×720 pixels) display with Infinite View Technology. A 64-bit 1.2 GHz Snapdragon 410 processor coupled with 1 GB of RAM running on Android 5.1.1. The BLU Studio 7.0 LTE has an 8MP rear camera and a 2MP front shooter. 4G LTE and dual SIM capability, with 16GB of internal storage and a microSD card slot. The device comes with a 3,700 mAh battery, and is available in 4 different colors: Ceramic White, Midnight Gray, Rose Gold, and Navy Blue.
Here is the official press release:
MIAMI, Oct. 29, 2015 /PRNewswire/ — BLU Products, the market leader in unlocked devices in the United States, introduced today the new BLU Studio 7.0 LTE smartphone, connecting with the best of both worlds by blending a 7-inch screen with a compact design that lets you comfortably hold it one-handed for phone calls, or fitting into your jeans pocket. “The market trend shows that the demand in larger screen smartphones is rising, as a direct result to the standard in a smartphone now approaching 5.5 inches, meaning the term phablet no longer applies to a broad range of devices in the 5.5 inch to 6.0 inch category,” said Samuel Ohev-Zion, CEO of BLU Products. “What the consumer wants today is a single device that brings value with an awesome display size and convenience.”
