I doubt they need permission. As far as I remember, Microsoft's PureView is trademarked only in relation to imaging technologies, not phone names.

"powered by a mid-range octa-core Mediatek MT6753" I won't call 1.3 GHz quad Cortex-A53 + 1.5 GHz quad Cortex-A53 (28nm) mind-ranger, lol.. Even the ancient Helio X10 is better than that.. Mid-ranger nowadays should use 2xA72 or 2xA57, or at least 2GHz+ Cortex-A53 at minimum :-/

It's not midrange, trust me, I have a phone with that SoC. Very disappointing even for a sub $200 phone. The chipset is very old anyway.

I still have a Blu life one x laying around with that processor. Decent for 2015. Monumental rip off for 2018. They've put that in their last couple phones :/
