Blu's New Phone Sports Four Cameras
The new Blu flagship device offers a 'Super Selfie' dual camera configuration for group selfies.

(CCM) — Blu has launched the Vivo X, a $249 Android phone with no less than four cameras.

The Miami-based budget phone-maker's new flagship device features dual front-facing ones for taking high quality selfies, and two higher spec rear-facing ones for taking conventional pictures. "When it comes to cameras, two is better than one, and four is better than two," the company explained.

The "Super Selfie" camera configuration includes a 20 MP camera paired with an 8 MP 120 degree wide-angle camera. These can be used to take "panorama selfies" which capture backgrounds more fully, and to take advantage of a "group selfie mode" which can include large numbers of people. The company also boasts "face beautification features" without going in to details of how these work.

The Blu Vivo X has a six-inch curved Gorilla Glass screen with an 18:9 aspect ratio and 1440 x 720 resolution, and it is powered by MediaTek's 2.6 GHz octa-core CPU. It offers 64 GB storage (expandable with a microSD card), and its 4,010 mAh battery offers fast charging in under two hours, the company claims.

Perhaps surprisingly, however, the handset is supplied with Android 7.0 Nougat, the version of the operating system which was first launched 18 months ago.

The new flagship phone is available now in Midnight Black only, priced at $249 for a limited time before reverting to the regular price of $299.
