BLU Updates Its Life Series With New Affordable 5-inchers

BLU Products, the Latin America-owned mobile phone manufacturer based in Miami, Florida, has updated its Life smartphone lineup. The recent additions are several affordable smartphones and a tablet.

The recent flagship Life One X features a quad-core Central Processing Units (CPU) and a 1080p screen, 2GB of RAM, a 13MP shooter with 5MP front-facer (both capable of 1080p recording), and the usual array of connectivity features like GPS, WiFi, Bluetooth, and Frequency Modulation (FM) Radio. It'll run for $279 for the 16GB model, and $299 for the 32GB model.

The Life One M also comes with a 5-inch screen, but of 720 resolution, although it does have the same quad-core 1.5Giga Hertz (GHz) processor. 12MP and 5MP shooters create up the photography, while the Random-Access Memory (RAM) has been reduced to 1GB and the internal storage to 4GB. It runs for $199.

The Life Play X takes the 720p display down to 4.7-inches, and the primary capturing camera down to 8MP. It does retain the 1.5Giga Hertz (GHz) processor, 5MP front-facer, and 1GB of RAM, but comes with 16GB of internal memory, which is probably why it retails for $20 more that the One M.

The Life Play S is the lowest ranked member of the recent Life family, having the same 4.7-inch 720p classy screen but with a 1.3Giga Hertz (GHz) MediaTek processor rather than a 1.5GHz. It's also the only member of the bunch to rely on a Mali-400 GPU rather than a PowerVR SGX544.

Finally, the BLU Life View Tab is an 8 inch 1024 x 768 tablet running on a quad-core 1.2Giga Hertz (GHz) processor. It features dual 5MP shooters, 16GB of expandable memory, and 1GB of RAM. Powering it all is a 4,500 mAh battery. It's priced fairly cheap at $199, but that SVideo Graphics Array (VGA) resolution stretched across an 8 inch classy screen can't be that great.

All of the recent Life series products are set to come unlocked for the North American market, with expandable storage and Android 4.2 out of box. Good news is that BLU has promised an Android 4.4 KitKat before the discontinue of Q2 2014.
