Blu Pure View will offer an 18:9 display and mid-range features for $199
Blu, seller of affordable unlocked smartphones, is seemingly getting ready to launch its very first handset with an 18:9 aspect ratio display, thus joining the elongated screen trend started last year by the LG G6 and Samsung Galaxy S8. According to an Amazon listing, the upcoming Blu handset is called Pure View (no relation to Nokia or Microsoft), and will cost $199.99 in the US.
The screen of the Blu Pure View is a 5.7-inch HD+ one, which should mean it's got a 720 x 1440 pixel resolution - not terrible, but not too exciting, either. The new smartphone is powered by a mid-range octa-core Mediatek MT6753 processor, further featuring 3 GB of RAM, 32 GB of expandable internal memory, fingerprint scanner, and face unlock. You're also getting a 13 MP rear camera with flash, and a dual 8 MP front-facing camera (with its own flash).
Blu hasn't announced the Pure View yet, but, since the phone's been listed on Amazon for several days now, we assume it's going to be released in the near future. The handset will be compatible only with GSM/LTE carriers like AT&T, T-Mobile, MetroPCS, Cricket, and Straight Talk.
