Bluboo Xtouch gets Iron Man case and screensaver accessory (UPDATE)
Iron Man has proven to be a very popular franchise for smartphone manufacturers, dating back to a commercial made in 2008 for the LG Voyager. A special Iron Man edition of the Samsung Galaxy S6 and Samsung Galaxy S6 edge was offered this year.
The Bluboo Xtouch features a 5-inch screen with a 1080 x 1920 resolution. The MediaTek MT6753 SoC is under the hood, containing an octa-core CPU. 3GB of RAM is inside, along with 32GB of expandable native storage. A 13MP rear-camera is equipped with Sony's IMX214 sensor, and an 8MP front-facing camera can be used for selfies and video chats. A fingerprint scanner is embedded in the home button, and Android 5.1 is pre-installed.
Bluboo originally had told us that the phone will be priced at $149.99, although other sources are showing a $179.99 price. We will see if we can get that straightened out. Meanwhile, we can tell you that the Iron Man case and screensaver is priced at $14.99. The Xtouch will be released some time later this month.
Thanks for the tip!
UPDATE: Bluboo informed us that the actual price of the Bluboo Xtouch is $179. The pre-order price is $149. We have to say that even at the higher price, the Bluboo Xtouch would seem to be a bargain.
