CES 2015: BLU Products Stirs Up the Smartphone Market
For quite some time, the smartphone market has been run by a handful of manufacturers, making it difficult for others to break in to the game. One manufacturer has managed to make a name for itself: BLU Products. This company is showing off an impressive lineup of new smartphones this year at CES. BLU Products has revamped its product line with updates to the already established VIVO Air, Studio Energy, and Life One series smartphones, while introducing the new Studio X, Studio X Plus, and Studio G smartphones.
The device gaining the most notoriety on this list of smartphones is definitely the Studio Energy. This smartphone offers one of the largest stock batteries currently available, with a 5000 mAh capacity, all while maintaining a 10.4mm design. BLU is making some pretty lofty claims with regard to the battery life, saying you can expect to get 4 days with standard usage; 52 hours of talk time; and 45 days of standby time. Along with the impressive battery life, the Studio Energy features a 5-inch HD display, 8-megapixel main camera and 2-megapixel front-facing camera. Inside you will find 8GB of built-in storage with the ability to add microSD cards up to 64GB in size.
Accompanying the Studio Energy, the BLU Vivo Air features a 5.15mm design weighing less than 100 grams. This ultra-slim smartphone is built from one solid block of aluminum-magnesium alloy and sports a Corning Gorilla Glass 3 shell on both the front and rear. The second-generation device in the Life One series features both design and performance improvements with a Qualcom 64-bit 1.2 GHz quad-core processor, a 5-megapixel front camera, 13-megapixel rear camera, a 5-inch display for the new Life One and 5.5-inch display for the Life One XL.
BLU Products also introduced two new smartphones at CES. The Studio X and Studio X Plus devices appeal to those in search of a large, bright display. The Studio X features a 5-inch display, while the Studio X Plus borders on the phablet category with a 5.5-inch display. Also making its debut is the Studio G, which is designed with a lower price point in mind. While it may be in search of a lower price point, BLU didn’t skimp on the specs with a 200 ppi 5-inch display, a 1.3 GHz quad-core processor, a 5-megapixel rear-facing camera, and a front camera for taking those selfies.
