BLU has announced a recent smartphone today. It's called Vivo 5R and the company says it's a "refreshed" version of the Vivo 5 launched in February. We assume the word "successor" isn't in BLU's dictionary, but that's exactly what the Vivo 5R is to the Vivo 5 in our book.

The recent handset comes with a 5.5-inch 1080p touchscreen, a 13 MegaPixel (MP) main capturing camera with Sony IMX258 sensor, phase detection autofocus and a Light Emitting Diode (LED) flash, an 8 MegaPixel (MP) selfie cam with Light Emitting Diode (LED) flash, the MediaTek MT6753 SoC at the helm (with a 1.3 Giga Hertz (GHz) octa-core Cortex-A53 CPU), 3GB of RAM, 32GB of expandable storage, 4G, a fingerprint scanner on the back, and a 3,150 mAh battery with 10W quick charging. It runs Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow. Its dimensions are 154.5 x 75.6 x 8.15 mm.

According to BLU, the Vivo 5R is compatible with the networks of AT&T, T-Mobile, and MetroPCS. It's already up for pre-order at Amazon for $199.99 unlocked. It will become available on September 21. It's being offered in two color versions - Gun Metal Grey and White-Grecent (both portrayed above).
