Blu on Thursday revealed yet another smartphone, the Life One X2, as part of its Android-powered portfolio. This time we’re looking at a model that borders somewhere in the space occupied by entry level and mid-range hardware.

As it is often wont to do, Blu releases devices with prices that come in lower than its competition. The Miami-based phone maker tends to prefer a stripped down stock Android experience that gives users less expensive, yet well-built alternatives to bigger brands. Moreover, its phones are sold unlocked and can be paired with a variety of GSM carriers.


A successor to the Blu Life One X, this new phone offers up a 5.2-inch full HD (1080p) display with curved glass and a metal chassis. Powered by a 1.4GHz octa-core processor, the Life One X2 comes in to options: 2GB RAM with 16GB storage and 4GB RAM with 64GB storage. Both versions run Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow.

The rear camera is listed at 16-megapixels and includes phase-detection autofocus and LED flash; the front-facing shooter is an 8-megapixel unit, also with LED flash.

Other key hardware details in the Life One X2 include a fingerprint reader, a 3000mAh battery with Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0, and support for LTE Bands 2, 4, 7, 12, and 17. If you are a T-Mobile or AT&T customer, or use their prepaid brands such as Cricket, MetroPCS, then the One X2 is one to consider.

Pre-orders for the Life One X2 start immediately with shipment expected to commence on October 7. The 2GB/16GB variant runs $150 while the 4GB/64GB option comes in at $200. Customers who pre-order today or tomorrow (September 23) will receive a 10% discount, effectively dropping prices to $135 and $180, respectively.
