The new Blu Vivo X is now official, coming in with not one, not two, not three, but four cameras.
That's the most highlighted feature of the phone, but that's not everything it's got to offer. There's a pretty big screen real estate in store and a huge battery to boot, among other things.
Blu Vivo X Specs And Features
Blu touts the Blu Vivo X as having a flagship design, which should be the case since it's the company's latest flagship, after all. That said, it's got that "electrolyzed finish" look, aluminum housing, and slim form factor to make it feel premium not only by how it looks but also how it feels in the hand.
Under the hood, a MediaTek Helio P25 with 2.6 GHz is running things, and it's paired with 4 GB worth of RAM. There's 64 GB of native storage to use, and if that's not enough, it's expandable via a microSD card.
It sports a 6-inch HD+ (1440 x 720) display with an 18:9 aspect ratio and a curved Gorilla Glass 3 to keep scratches at bay. Out of the box, it runs on Android 7.0 Nougat.
It's powered by a non-removable 4,010 mAh battery that Blu says can go up to 100 percent in just 120 minutes, thanks to Ultra-Fast charging support. It also features an Extreme Power Saving Mode to make sure the lights are on throughout an entire day, and maybe even longer.
As mentioned earlier, the Blu Vivo X gives you four cameras to work with — two on the front and two on the back. In other words, it not only takes your mobile photography game up a notch but also your selfie game.
"When it comes to cameras, two is better than one, and four is better than two," Blu says.
This seems to be the phone's crème de la crème, where the front boasts what Blu calls a "dual Super Selfie camera configuration." Getting down to the specifics, that translates to a 20-megapixel sensor that's coupled with another 8-megapixel sensor for improved depth of field, bokeh effect, and more.
Meanwhile, the dual-camera setup on the rear consists of a 13-megapixel sensor and a 5-megapixel sensor, which can be used to take advantage of the phone's camera-related features such as slow-motion video recording and an adjustable depth of field, to name a few.
The Confusing Limited-Time Price
The original price of the Blu Vivo X is set at $299.99, but at the time of this writing, it's available for $249.99 over at Amazon for a limited time only. That's despite Blu saying that early buyers will get $100 off the phone.
If you're looking for a colorful version of the smartphone, it's unfortunately available only in Midnight Black, but that could change sometime in the future, presumably depending on how popular it gets.
All in all, it's a decent smartphone that may not exactly turn heads, but it won't turn them away either. If nothing else, the Blu Vivo X makes dual cameras accessible to more users.
