After launching the Life One X2 in September last year, smartphone manufacturer BLU has now announced the Life One X2 Mini, which as the name suggests, is a smaller variant of the Life One X2.
The BLU Life One X2 Mini, like the Life One X2, is powered by Snapdragon 430 SoC which is laced with 4 GB RAM and backed by Adreno 505 GPU. The device flaunts a metal uni-body construction and is offered in Gold, Grey and Rose Gold colors. While the Life One X2 featured a 5.2-inch Full-HD display, the Life One X2 Mini comes with a smaller 5-inch display with the same resolution.
The device, even in 2017, runs on Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow and there isn’t any information yet from BLU regarding future software updates. The BLU Life One X2 Mini comes with a 13 MP primary camera at the back and features an 8 MP secondary camera on the front which is accompanied by LED flash for better selfies in low-light conditions.
“The Life One X2 Mini brings flagship specs to consumers who don’t want break the bank, spending $600-$700 on a mobile device. With the release of the new BLU Life One X2 Mini, you can’t go wrong with the mini’s striking design packed with desirable specs, like 64GB + 4GB RAM making it a remarkable device for this price segment.” said Samuel Ohev-Zion, CEO of BLU Products.
While the Life One X2 was offered in two different configurations – 2 GB RAM + 16 GB storage and 4 GB RAM + 64 GB storage – the Life One X2 Mini is offered in only one configuration which packs 4 GB RAM and 64 GB of storage. BLU also says that the “Life One X2 Mini will be the first phone ever to offer 4GB RAM for under $180“.
