BLU Vivo XL4 is a cheap notched phone compatible with T-Mobile and AT&T
BLU Products, a Miami-based company specialized in selling affordable unlocked phones in the US, is getting ready to release a brand new Android handset. Called Vivo XL4, this new BLU smartphone is succeeding the Vivo XL3 from earlier this year and offers a modern design (including a notched display) at an accessible price.
While the BLU Vivo XL4 hasn't been officially announced, it's already listed on Amazon - here and here. Priced at $149.99, the new device is not in stock yet and will ship "within 1 to 3 months."
Aspect-wise, the Vivo XL4 resembles the Vivo XI+ (BLU's first notched phone - released several months ago for $249.99). However, the specs of the Vivo XL4 aren't on par with those of the Vivo XI+, although they're not bad for a $150 smartphone.
One of the highlight features of the BLU Vivo XL4 is its 4,000 mAh battery that should last "at least a full day" on a single charge. The handset further offers a 6.2-inch screen with 720 x 1520 pixels, fingerprint scanner, 3 GB of RAM, 32 GB of expandable storage space, USB Type-C, and a dual rear camera. The processor that's powering the Vivo XL4 is a MediaTek Helio P22 - a decent octa-core CPU specifically designed for affordable mid-range smartphones. At the moment, it's not clear what Android version the new device is running, though we assume it's Android 8 Oreo.
The BLU Vivo XL4 comes with US warranty and is compatible with AT&T and T-Mobile (including their prepaid brands), but won't work on Verizon, Sprint, or US Cellular.
