Blu Debuts Vivo XI+ Flagship with Liquid Design
Blu Products today announced its flagship phone for the second half of the year, the Vivo XI+. This phone drops the mostly metal build of older Blu phones in favor of a glass front, metal frame, and plastic rear that are assembled with a smooth profile all around. The Vivo XI+ boasts a 6.2-inch full HD+ display with a notched area up top. The phone is powered by the MediaTek Helio P60 processor with 6 GB of RAM to ensure smooth performance. The Vivo XI+ sports AI-assisted Face ID that relies on infrared to detect the owner's face and irises. Blu gave the Vivo XI+ a dual camera system on the back. The main shooter has a 16-megapixel sensor while the second had a 5-megapixel sensor. Together, they can take bokeh/portrait shots, as well as time-lapse, slow-motion, HDR, and beauty shots. The selfie camera has a 16-megapixel sensor and screen-based flash. The 3,050mAh battery supports wireless charging (Qi) and rapid charging. Other features include support for microSD memory cards or two SIM cards, USB-C, WiFi, GPS, and LTE. It runs Android 8.1 Oreo. The phone can operate on the networks of AT&T/Cricket and T-Mobile/MetroPCS. It is being sold unlocked from Amazon.com for $350. For a limited time (while supplies last), Blu is offering the phone for sale at $250.
