BLU Mobiles is back in the news today with a brand new handset dubbed the BLU Vivo 5R. It’s the company’s latest affordable smartphone, and it may be your next buy if you are in need of a solid phablet.

Each month, BLU rolls out a smartphone or two from its endless arsenal of smartphones. Some look a bit different than others, but most share a common theme — affordability. The BLU Vivo 5R isn’t going to be in the flagship class, but does offer up respectable specifications to go along with an unlocked price tag of only $199.99.

  • 5.5-inch display 1,920 x 1,080
  • MediaTek 6753 octa-core processor
  • 3GB of RAM
  • 32GB of expandable storage
  • 13MP rear camera (Sony IMX258)
  • 8MP front-facing camera
  • Fingerprint Scanner
  • DTS Surround Sound
  • 3,150mAh battery
  • Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, GPS, 4G LTE (GSM networks)
  • Android 6.0

The BLU Vivo 5R looks good on paper and has a classy, if familiar vibe with its design as well. The smartphone is already available for preorder through Best Buy and Amazon in the states, and will roll out in Grey or Gold on September 21st if you’re looking to pick one up.
