BLU Announces Latest BLU VIVO Series Smartphones

Last updated:

New BLU Vivo series include vivid SUPER AMOLED displays, powerful 4G LTE Octa-Core processor by Mediatek, and design that incorporates metal and state of the art finishing.

BLU Products introduced two new smartphone devices at the 2016 CES, with the latest in the BLU VIVO series, which has always been known for high-end phenomenal design, performance, and a focus on user experience.

“The Vivo 5 and Vivo XL are the most advanced and stunning smartphones that BLU has ever launched in this price range. Our devices utilize a powerful yet efficient 8-core 64 Bit processor by MediaTek, in addition to a beautiful and vivid SUPER AMOLED display for a user experience that is far superior to its competitors.” said Samuel Ohev-Zion, CEO of BLU Products.

“However, the highlight is unquestionably the innovative and unique design, including our first ever full metal body design.”

The BLU Vivo 5 and Vivo XL are both powered by a MediaTek 4G LTE MT6753 Tru Octa-Core 64 Bit processor, which benchmarks prove blow away the competition as evidenced by the graph below:

With a continued emphasis on high end user experience, the BLU Vivo 5 and Vivo XL both feature a 5.5-inch SUPER AMOLED display bonded with a scratch resistant and durable Corning Gorilla Glass 3, fine-tuned for an incredibly responsive touch experience, and an immersive color and contrast experience, unlike any other device in this price range in the world today.

Camera performance has been perfected with several software enhancements and features including AF and AE separation, Magic Focus, Ultra Pixel, Smart Scene and more, with a 13MP main camera including f2.0 Aperture, 5 piece sapphire blue lenses, and Phase Detection Auto Focus (PDAF) that captures focus in one tenth of a second. In the font is a 5MP wide-angle camera, for a quality front camera selfie experience, and software features such as Face Beauty.

The BLU Vivo 5 and Vivo XL also each include a 3,150mAh in a slim 6.9mm body for Vivo 5 and 7.5mm for Vivo XL, resulting in incredible battery life, while marvelously maintaining a thin design, with the latest in USB Type-C 2.0 Port for easy charging, plus Fast Charging Technology. Additional Features include Hi-Fi DTS Sound for an enhanced audio experience.

The differences between the new Vivo Series devices can be found in the design, construction materials, and memory options.
