Watch as the Bluboo Xtouch gets hammered
The Bluboo Xtouch, which can be pre-ordered from the manufacturer for an amazingly low $99 (regular price is $149, which is still unbelievable), has just had its screen improved. Over at Bluboo, they added .5mm to the Gorilla Glass 3 screen to make it even more sturdy. How much sturdier can it be? How about sturdy enough for Bluboo to take a slab of concrete, cover the phone with it, and then slam the slab hard enough to break the concrete in two. The result? The screen remains pristine.

Just to show that this was no fluke, the Bluboo guys did it a second time, with still no damage done to the screen. Bolstering the protection of Gorilla Glass is something that we saw this past summer with the Doogee Valencia2 Y100. On that phone, the Gorilla Glass was extended by .8mm, and that handset was used by the company to crack a number of walnuts. Like Doogee discovered before enhancing the Valencia2 Y100, Bluboo engineers found that the 2.5D glass on the Xtouch could not survive a fall without improving on the protection afforded by Gorilla Glass.

Bluboo has quite a nice spec'd phone here, equipped with a 5-inch screen carrying 2.5D glass, and a 1080 x 1920 FHD resolution. The MediaTek MT6753 SoC under the hood, brings an octa-core CPU. 3GB of LPDDR3 RAM is inside along with 32GB of expandable native memory. The Sony IMX214 sensor is found in the rear-facing 13MP camera, and the front-facing 8MP snapper will handle selfies and video chats. A 3050mAh battery powers the phone, including the fingerprint scanner embedded in the home button. The back cover is made with 3D glass, and Android 5.1 comes with the phone out of the box.
