The BLU Studio Energy is now on sale at Amazon for only $149
BLU Products recently announced a huge amount smartphones at CES 2015. Perhaps the most intriguing out of the bunch, the BLU Studio Energy, is now on sale through Amazon for only $149. The Studio Energy is a bit thicker than the others, but that’s thanks in part to the massive 5,000mAh battery. BLU quotes that this device can last up to four days on a single charge, or up to 45 days of standby time.
Aside from the huge battery, the Studio Energy has a 5-inch IPS LCD display with 720 x 1280 resolution, a quad-core 1.3GHz Cortex-A7 processor backed by 1GB of RAM, an 8MP rear-facing camera and a 2MP front-facing camera. While this device only has 8GB of internal storage, it supports MicroSD expansion up to 64GB. The device is running Android 4.4 KitKat, but BLU assures us that the phone will be updated to Android 5.0 Lollipop sometime in the future. Oh, and this smartphone can charge other electronic devices using the included USB OTG cable.
Considering this phone has a big battery, a decent processor, a nice screen and support for 64GB of external storage, this is a steal at $149. We went hands-on with the device at CES last month, and it was one of the more interesting devices we saw at the trade show. Take a look at our hands-on video below, and be sure to head to the Amazon link to grab one for yourself.
