BLU Mobile have just released the companies first 5G-enabled smartphone dubbed F91 5G. The device comes in a massive 6.8-inches screen with 1080 x 2460 pixels. It has a dot-notch in the middle, and an advertised 91.7% screen-to-body ratio.
Powering the phone is Dimensity 810 CPU from MediaTek. Most, if not all smartphones released by BLU Mobile in the past 2 years has been based on either MediaTek Helio line of CPUs, or those from UNISOC. So launching a smartphone with Dimensity CPU is a major step up for the company, probably one that should have come a little earlier than now, especially considering the company’s primary market, which is the USA.
For reasons unknown, BLU is still not able to harness the rapidly growing and availability of Android 12 yet, so all you are getting Operating System wise, is Android 11. The phone itself come with 8GB RAM and 128GB ROM.
As for the optics, there is a total of four lenses on the rear of the F91 5G. These includes a 48-megapixel primary shooter, 5MP ultrawide lens, 2MP depth and 2MP macro snapper, while a single 16-megapixel selfie cam is kept on the front. BLU is offering a 5000mAh battery on the inside of the phone, and the unit support both 18W and 10W wired and wireless fast charging respectively.
