BLUBOO R1: Have You Ever Thought of Changing Your Fragile Smartphone to A Rugged One?

With the popularization of smartphone, we are becoming symbiotic with it in our daily life. However, there are still something unsatisfactory, for instance, smartphones could be easily damaged by water, dust or falls. Well, have you ever thought about replacing your smartphone with a rugged one? Indeed, even though many a rugged phone is of solid sturdiness, they looks quite ugly with low-end specs. With the increasingly demanding requirements of users, the trend of transformation between smartphone and rugged phone is inevitable.

01

Fragile Smartphone

2

Traditional Rugged Phone

 

Recently it’s confirmed that Chinese maker BLUBOO are working on a stylish device named BLUBOO R1— as the name suggests the new phone would be a rugged one — for people from all walks of life. Generally speaking, rugged robust phones are mainly meant for the active customers, who like outdoor activities and need devices resistant to all the possible harm there including water, dust, falls or extreme temperature, etc. BLUBOO are trying to make a breakthrough, making the new R1 model combine the features of rugged phones and average smartphones. The forthcoming BLUBOO R1 model is not only unique in its capacities, but also bears a stylish and elegant look compared to other current rugged phones. Aside from active outdoor customers, the R1 with powerful performance and rugged capability certainly would attract much popularity from average smartphone users.

Detailed specification remain unknown. But BLUBOO claim that their R1 would be armed with some advanced weapons and offer high-end specs. And it would be available in the market in the first half of 2017. Please stay tuned for our further reports or you could subscribe to BLUBOO official website www.bluboo.hk for their latest news.

BLUBOO Picasso 4G: Most Worth Having Entry-level 4G Smartphone

Earlier this year, BLUBOO announced their Picasso model which did make a stir, and though it was an affordable phone it really didn’t support fast 4G LTE. With the increased popularization of 4G phones, BLUBOO decided to update the device to support 4G network. And with a few tweaks and adjustments made here and there to the phone, finally BLUBOO have created the Picasso 4G with more attractive features and they declared that the Picasso 4G model is the most worth having entry-level 4G device. But why?

1

Well, for starters, the BLUBOO Picasso 4G has some impressive updates over the original Picasso model. First of all, the chipset of BLUBOO Picasso 4G has been updated to a Mediatek MT6735 SoC. This not only means the phone can process applications and tasks faster, but perhaps more importantly users will have access to 4G LTE networks. Besides, with upgraded cameras, 13 mega-pixel SONY rear camera and 8 mega-pixel front camera, the Picasso 4G is capable of great camera performance. And the phone is also optimized to run pure Android 6.0 Marshmallow as the OS, which brings more enjoyable user experience. Such a 4G phone costs less than $90, that’s quite a bargain.

2

Another highlight is that the Picasso 4G model support NFC. Generally speaking, it’s rare for a budget-friendly device to come with NFC. NFC (Near Field Communication) not only makes you phone a digital wallet (mobile payment), but also serves other purposes, for instance, offering fast pairing between your phone and various devices, being used in advertising in shopping malls (for downloading special offers or maps of the store etc), etc. Affordable pricing tag combing with NFC support, isn’t it tempting?

Many people have been deeply impressed by the beautiful design of original Picasso model hence BLUBOO Picasso 4G retains the same design: extreme great tactility, diamond-cutting texture, 3D ergonomics arc, 1000 nanoscale close grain, etc. With a single glance, you can’t take your eyes off. The Picasso 4G has to be the best looking phone in its range.

Other spec of the Picasso 4G model is quite decent:  5.0’’ display with HD resolution, 2GB RAM, 16GB ROM, 64GB microSD expansion support, and 2800mAh battery. With price tag of only $89.99, it’s quite a good deal for a 4G phone with those features. For more details about the Picasso 4G, please visit here: http://www.bluboo.hk/product/picasso-4g.

And with the end of the year BLUBOO holds a special sales event and most of their products will get some sort of a discount. Like Bluboo Dual price slashed to $99.99, Bluboo Edge for $109.99 or Bluboo Maya for $129.99. The sale event will be running until the very end of the year on December 31st and you can find all the details on the official website: http://www.bluboo.hk/newyearsale2017 or alternatively BLUBOO official AliExpress store: http://bit.ly/2iHZqIT

 

BLUBOO Maya Max: Most Fully-fledged Phone Powered by MTK6750 Processor

1

The jury is still out on if bigger is better, but bigger is usually more popular hence increasing number of Chinese manufacturers are trying to get their version on the market. BLUBOO isn’t an exception. In August, they launched their 6.0-inch Maya Max which does make a splash.

For starters, the BLUBOO Maya Max is equipped with the new generation of the affordable mid-range processor, MediaTek MTK6750, which combines the benefits of the MT6755 and MT6753 chipsets with 4G Cat6 support, eight Cortex A53 cores clocked at 1.5Ghz, support for up to 4 GB LPDDR3 RAM and modern Mali-T860 GPU. Superior configuration guarantees smooth operation and fluent multitasking experience.  

The Maya Max has a 6.0-inch JDI display with HD resolution, coupling with OGS technology, which brings sharper, richer visual experience with higher sensitivity and higher transparency. And apart from multi-touch support, the screen could even handle wet and gloved touch controls. As for touch panel, BLUBOO adopts a dual-layer one, bringing more accurate, sensitive touch experience. Large display pairs with large battery. The Maya Max contains a 4200mAh battery with quick-charge support to offer long-lasting service time and shorter recharge time.

The camera specs are average at best, 13 Mpix main camera with Sony 214 sensor and 8 Mpix front camera. And for the selfie lovers the BLUBOO Beautysnap app will be just pure bliss with variety of effects and functions like the classic “beautification”, “age and sex recognition” or the “enhance mode” available. With smart self-timer mode, you even don’t need to press the shutter when shooting.

2

What’s more, BLUBOO Maya Max has some distinctive features which distinguish from common budget-friendly smartphones, for instance, VoLTE technology for high quality video&voice calls via 4G network, NXP speaker for better sound quality, rear fingerprint reader being capable of unlocking phone in less than 0.1 second, sided mute button, USB Type-C port, off-screen gesture and Android 6.0 Marshmallow as the OS. Compare to other competitors under the hood of MediaTek , the Maya Max is definitely the most fully-featured one.

Last but not least, the BLUBOO Maya Max made of 6000 series aluminum alloy looks more appealing than devices using cheaper alloys. Through CNC machining the back cover is brushed and also has an overall curvy design, giving a better feeling in hands as well as a premium outside.

Hands-on Comparison Video: BLUBOO Dual vs Oukitel U20 Plus

Previously we compared two similar dual camera models, BLUBOO Dual and Oukitel U20 Plus on paper. Well, today we have for you a video to elaborate more details.

Before we get to the video, let’s go through their main speculations quickly. Most of their specs are really absolutely identical, from the 5.5-inch SHARP display with FullHD resolution, through MT6737T processor, 2 GB RAM and 16 GB of expandable ROM to 13 Mpix primary rear camera with Sony IMX135 sensor and 8 Mpix front camera or rear fingerprint scanner and Android 6.0 as the OS.

Another highlight is surely the comparison about dual camera performance. Both the two handsets are equipped with same 13 Mpix main camera, but different secondary ones: BLUBOO Dual uses 2Mpix sensor in contrast to just 0.3 Mpix in the Oukitel. In the video the Dual not only shows faster focusing speed, but also higher shutter speed. And comparing pictures respectively taken by the two phones, it’s obvious that the BLUBOO Dual produce more superior photos with clearer foreground and more blurred, softer background thanks to higher pixel and larger aperture.

BLUBOO Dual Helps You Tell Real Dual Camera Phones from Fake Ones

1

Increasing number of dual camera phones are entering in the market. Some makers and sellers even trick customers with fake dual cameras, known as software-level dual camera effect. So how do you find out if you have a real dual camera smartphone or a fake one?

BLUBOO have released their dual camera device BLUBOO Dual. To prove their dual camera model comes with real dual camera setup, they offer some authentic advices on how to recognize fake dual-lens camera.

2

Well, for starters, in terms of hardware platform, only the MediaTek MTK6737T chipset and better could support twol cameras working in close collaboration. As for those lower-level CPU, they are not enough. Besides, BLUBOO mentioned that there will be a warning if you block the subsidiary camera, reminding you that the secondary camera is blocked. And if you do not move the obstructions you will get images without depth-of-field effect. While for fake dual cameras, there will no warning and you could still get pictures with blurring background due to software tricks.

Moreover, when shooting real dual cameras smartphones allow users to choose the focusing point randomly and adjust the degree of blurring in real time. You could decide where to sharpen or blur, or intensify the sharpening to highlight the main character or shallow the blurring for more details about the background. But fake dual cameras won’t support the aforementioned functions.
