The Blu R2 Plus is a new affordable dual SIM phone that's good for selfies3
If you're looking to buy an affordable dual SIM smartphone in the US, you might be interested in the Blu R2 Plus, which is available as of this week on Amazon. The R2 Plus is an upgraded variant of the Blu R2 (released last year), and, like almost all Blu phones launched in the US, it's sold unlocked.
Priced at $179.99, the Blu R2 Plus has an aluminum rear shell, and offers decent features to accompany its dual SIM capabilities. Sporting a 5.5-inch 1080p display, the phone is powered by an octa-core MediaTek MT6753 processor aided by 3 GB of RAM, so it should handle everyday tasks just fine.
The new handset also comes with a fingerprint scanner, 32 GB of expandable storage space, and a 3000 mAh battery. Moreover, the device has 13 MP cameras on the rear and front, both with LED flashes - thus, you can take selfies even in the dark.
The Blu R2 Plus is fully compatible with GSM/LTE carriers like AT&T, T-Mobile, Cricket, MetroPCS, and Straight Talk. The smartphone currently runs Android 7 Nougat, and it's unclear if Blu will update it to Android 8 Oreo. If you're interested in buying the handset, you can find it at the source links below.
