BLU Vivo Air LTE announced as the thinnest LTE smartphone in the US
Besides announcing the high-end (yet affordable) Life XL, BLU today also introduced the Vivo Air LTE, which is presented as "the thinnest 4G LTE smartphone in the Americas." Like the Vivo Air that BLU released back in January, the new device has a 5.1mm-thin profile, so it looks like it is, indeed, the slimmest LTE handset to be launched in America.

Built around an aluminum frame, the BLU Vivo Air LTE doesn't look too different from its predecessor. It comes with a few upgraded features, though, including Android Lollipop out of the box, a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 processor, and 2 GB of RAM. Plus, of course, the handset has LTE connectivity - there's full support for T-Mobile LTE, while AT&T LTE is limited to the markets where the carrier is using LTE bands 2 and 4 (you'll have to check that in your region).

The BLU Vivo Air LTE also features a 4.8-inch Super AMOLED display with 720 x 1280 pixels, 8 MP rear camera, 5 MP front-facing camera, 16 GB of non-expandable storage space, and a 2050 mAh battery. The smartphone will be available starting September 22 via Amazon, being offered for $199 unlocked. Any buyers?
