BLU Life One X2 Launches on October 7th for $150 (SD430, 5.2″ 1080p, 3000mAh, QC 3.0)

The BLU Life One X2 was just announced, and at $150 for the unlocked base model it appears to be a solid budget offering.

It launches with Android 6.0 Marshmallow and packs a Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 with Quick Charge 3.0, a 3000 mAh battery, a 5.2″ 1080p IPS display with 2.5D Gorilla Glass, an 8 MP front camera with a front facing flash, a 16 MP rear camera with PDAF and laser autofocus and an f2.4 aperture, a microUSB connector, a front-mounted fingerprint sensor, a microSD slot, and dual SIM support.
Storage options are 16 GB of storage with 2 GB of RAM, or 64 GB and 4 GB for an extra $50, and the metallic housing comes in Gunmetal Grey or Rose Gold.

BLU is advertising support for AT&T, T-Mobile, and MetroPCS, and the phone has all the right bands with support for HSPA 850/1700/1900/2100 and Category 4 LTE bands 2/4/7/12/17, although it remains to be seen if the phone will have VoLTE support on the T-Mobile network (as if it doesn’t then Band 12 LTE will likely need to be disabled for T-Mobile users).

While the BLU Life One X was relatively successful last year, moving to a Snapdragon SoC instead of Mediatek could see improved developer support, and the addition of Quick Charge 3.0, a fingerprint sensor, a better camera, and a larger storage option are particularly welcome.

The BLU Life One X2 looks to be another neat addition to the increasingly competitive budget phone space, and appears to be a compelling option for anyone looking to get the most out of their money.

The device is available on Amazon with a 10% discount for pre-orders, placing it at $134.99 for the 16GB/2GB RAM base model and $179.99 for the 64 GB/4GB RAM version.
