BLU Vivo Go coming soon as the company's first Android Pie Go edition smartphone
BLU Products is mostly known for its affordable Android smartphones and its upcoming product is no exception to the rule. The Vivo Go is a brand new device that hasn't yet been officially introduced, but it's likely to be announced very soon.

The Verge reports in a post that's been deleted soon after being published that BLU Vivo Go will be the company's first Android Pie Go edition smartphone. The Vivo Go will go on sale at Amazon in November for just $90 and customers who buy will receive a pair of earbuds for free.

Specs-wise, BLU Vivo Go is nothing to be excited for, which is why it's dirt cheap. The phone will come equipped with a 1.5GHz quad-core MediaTek processor, just 1GB RAM, and 16GB expandable storage.

BLU Vivo Go will include a dual rear camera (8MP+8MP) and a secondary VGA selfie snapper. It will be powered by a 2,600 mAh battery and will sport a 6-inch HD+ (1440 x 720 pixels) display. The main strong point is that BLU Vivo Go will run Android Pie (Go Edition) right out of the box.

It's funny to me when people make stupid comments like this as if the resolution is the most important aspect of a phone. If you're going to bring up a con, why don't we also talk about how it has the fastest mobile processor available today?

Fastest in what? Loading games? That's the only thing I see where the iPhone wins.

Processing anything, such as video editing for example.

I'm a power user and I never edit video on a smartphone, not even once.

Good for you, never said you did. It was an example, not the only thing. A faster processor will ‘process’ anything faster, “power user”.

That's until the battery degrades. Which, is inevitable on any device. I doubt a lower celled device would keep up with a higher celled one. Least, throttling from Apple is now optional. Slow phone = battery life. Fast phone = soon to be dead battery. What good is speed, when your phone is dead? Btw, before Apple "fixed" battery gate. I trashed my 5s for that very reason. (Seriously). Fast, yes. But, constantly dying unexpectedly.

Android Users: Don’t get this phone, get poco f1 it’s so fast with heat pipes! Also Android Users: iphone is faster? Who cares about being fast! Also, replace battery or get new phone. Not hard.

Dude get real...how many do you actually believe are going to edit videos on a tiny screen phone with limited resources over a laptop or computer that actually has the resources they need? You're just being salty because somebody said something about your precious iphone that you didn't like.

I guess since you don’t edit video, no one does. No one trims a video they took. It was an example, and not the only benefit of a faster processor. iphone is faster at everything. The only salt here is from Android apologists.

Since most people who buy a smartphone these days do nothing but watch videos, play games and take pictures, resolution is a HUGE factor these days. Those same people don't know anything or give a crap about processor speeds...oh look my iphone can open an app .2 seconds faster...

So scrappy Blu is releasing a dirt cheap Pie (Go) phone, yet Samsung is just about to start a Pie beta for Galaxy S9? strategic_developer?

So what. Oreo on my S9 works fantastic. I'd rather wait and get Samsung's version of Pie.

I just can't see why Pie (or any newer android version) is important on Samsung's devices. Samsung Experience 9.5 (Oreo) got more features than vanilla Pie (and it's also true for older Samsung Experience compared to vanilla Android at any given time)

Customer feedback is a valuable resource. Beta projects are just that, feedback. When, was the last time Apple listened to customers? True split screen? Pencil support? I have friends wishing for it. Apple dont give a tail. I'd beta and leave feedback; if I could. Why we're at it. Don't test crash new cars. Their all safe, no problems, or issues to be fixed.

Apple has beta releases of iOS...

I wish Blu the best but I don't think I can go back to them after the X2 I had.
