BLU launches its first true selfie-centric smartphone, the VIVO 8L


US-based company BLU Products has just announced the immediate availability of its first selfie-oriented Android smartphone. Dubbed VIVO 8L, the handset has nothing to do with the popular Chinese brand Vivo.

Aside from the really impressive 20-megapixel front-facing camera, BLU VIVO 8L enlists a set of mid-range specs to appeal to consumers. The VIVO 8L is now available for purchase at Amazon for just $150, exactly 25% cheaper than the MSRP. After the promotional offer ends, Amazon will continue to sell the BLU VIVO 8L for $200.

The VIVO 8L ships with Android 7.0 Nougat on board and packs an octa-core MediaTek 6753 processor inside, which is complemented by 3GB RAM and 32GB expandable storage. The 5.3-inch display with HD (720p) resolution is protected by curved Corning Gorilla Glass 3.

The primary 13-megapixel camera on the back side features a Sony IMX258 sensor, F/2.0 aperture, real-time HDR, and PDAF (phase detection autofocus) with laser focus. A rear-mounted fingerprint sensor is included as well, along with USB OTG (on-the-go) capability.

The 20-megapixel selfie camera includes advanced technologies that allow users to take the best pictures in low-light conditions. Enhanced face beautification software and smart scene picture detection are just some of the technologies used by the phone's camera.

Last but not least, BLU VIVO 8L is powered by a robust 4,000 mAh battery that should provide up to 32 hours of talk time or around 72 hours of music play, but with saving mode activated.

Image processing is pretty much nonexistent on blu phones despite sometimes good hardware. And mediatek is crap for the most part.
