BLU reveals 5-inch 1080p, 13MP smartphone unlocked for $349 BLU Products, the company aiming to control the extremely low-end market in Latin America and elsewhere, has unveiled its Life Pure smartphone, one with specs that can almost rival today's more expensive and high-end devices.
The Life Pure will sell unlocked for $340 and include a 5-inch 1080p display, dual 13MP/5MP cameras, 32GB internal storage, be powered by a mid-range 1.5GHz quad-core MediaTek and 2GB RAM and will run on Android 4.2. Unfortunately, there is no LTE support for the device but it does support HSPA+.

"The Life Pure as its name suggests is art in its purest form, created from a single piece polycarbonate using the latest CNC technology, then each individually hand crafted, resulting in beautifully designed hardware," said Samuel Ohev-Zion, CEO of BLU Products. "When combined with equally stunning software, the final result is a device that should be appreciated as different and captivating to look at."

BLU was founded in 2009 and most recently sold over 4 million devices in the last year, including one that sells overseas for less than $5 with contract.
