Bluboo is relatively a not so familiar brand, well atleast for the rest of the world and maybe not for the Chinese markets. The smartphone market in China constantly takes a new turn now and then, some come up new innovation while some come with attention grabbing price tag, The Bluboo Xfire 2 definitely falls into the second category, with the type of specifications and features the device’s price is surely a shocker. The Bluboo Xfire 2 features the metal body, 2.5D curved glass display and most of all it also has that fingerprint sensor on board. Features wise the smartphone looks impressive for a price of mere $60 which is approximately around Rs.4,000 for the basic variant while the Dual SIM variant is priced at $73. The company is taking in pre-orders and will ship the device come time later in February 2016. Let’s look at the specifications of the Bluboo Xfire 2.
Bluboo Xfire 2 Specifications:
The device is powered by MediaTek MT6580Soc clocked at 1.3GHz Quad-Core processor with Mali 400 GPU on board. The device sports a 5-inches HD(1280*720) 2.5D display and the smartphone’s body sports a curved arc design making it unique and comfortable to use. There is 1GB of Ram and 8GB internal storage which is further expandable via a MicroSD card slot up to 32GB. The Bluboo Xfire 2 runs on Android 5.1 Lollipop with the company designed 8 customized themes.
On the camera side, the device features a 5-megapixel primary autofocus camera(that is well interpolated to an 8-megapixel) with LED flash and a 2-megapixel front camera for selfies and video calls, just like the rear camera, the front camera is also interpolated to a 5-megapixel camera. Connectivity features include 3G, WiFi 802.11b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS, OTG, the lack of 4G is surely a bummer. As said above, the device comes in two variants but the only difference is one comes with single SIM while the other has Dual SIM slots. We also have that fingerprint sensor down below the rear camera module which is surely a standout feature at this price range. A 2,150mAH battery unit is on board which is removable.
