BLU G9 Pro goes for the Moto G7's jugular with crazy low price and dreamy specs
Case in point, the brand-new G9 Pro, which you can score on Amazon for a limited time at a cool introductory discount of $50 off its "normal" price of $249.99. As the name suggests, this is an upgraded version of the even cheaper BLU G9 released a few months back, delivering a fairly large number of improvements of key specifications, as well as a nicely refined design.
The robust metallic frame of the BLU G9 Pro is paired with a snazzy glass back cover rocking blue-to-purple gradient hues contributing to an eye-catching color scheme marketed as "Nightfall." Under the hood, the enhanced 6.3-incher packs a speedier MediaTek Helio P60 processor (compared to the Helio P22 chipset inside the "regular" G9), while the Samsung-inspired "Infinity" display sports a Full HD+ resolution of 2340 x 1080 pixels, as well as an "inconspicuous" V-notch and a slightly more noticeable chin.
Interestingly, BLU isn't afraid of pitting its latest "flagship" against the Moto G7 itself, claiming victories across processing power, screen to body ratio, camera capabilities, storage, battery, wireless charging, and design categories over possibly the most popular mid-ranger on the market right now.
On paper, the BLU G9 Pro certainly looks outstanding from a bang for buck perspective, featuring everything from a triple rear shooter setup (with a 16MP main camera, 5MP depth sensor, and 20MP Night Mode snapper) to a 24MP selfie cam, 4GB RAM, 128 gigs of internal storage, 4,000mAh battery capacity, Android 9.0 Pie software, fingerprint scanner, Face ID technology, and full support for GSM networks nationwide.
But brand recognition and marketing are still a pretty big problem for BLU Products, not to mention concerns over possible repeats of past issues regarding poor security and catastrophic software updates. If you're willing to ignore all that, the G9 Pro looks truly unbeatable at its crazy affordable price point (both with or without a launch discount).
