The smartphones with 5-inch screen size are now considered as smaller devices. There are also many smartphones with more than 6-inch display size. Yesterday, Nubia launched the Nubia Z11 Mini S smartphone with a 5.2-inch display. Most of the users are preferring smartphones with bigger displays as they offer better experience while watching videos or playing games. Earlier this year, Apple launched the 4-inch iPhone SE which is said to be sold better than the expectations. Now, the lesser known Chinese company Bluboo is launching a new smartphone called Bluboo Mini with a screen size of 4.5-inches. It can be a good device for single hand usage and offers better battery life than the smartphones with bigger displays.
The 4.5-inch IPS display on this device is expected to come with qHD ( 960 x 540 pixels) resolution. From the above featured image, we can see the textured finish on the back that looks even better in the darker colors. It has curved edges on the back that give a nice grip to hold onto the device for longer durations. The metal frame around the device gives the sturdiness required for the smartphone. It will be powered by a quad-core processor clocked at 1.3GHz and most probably we will see the MediaTek chipset inside this device. The device comes with 1GB of RAM and 8GB of internal storage that can be expanded with the provided MicroSD card slot.
It will be running on Android 6.0 Marshmallow out of the box. The device also sports an 8MP rear camera with LED flash and a 5MP front camera for selfies. There is no other information about the other specifications of the device. It will anyway support dual SIM dual standby. From the images, we can see the loudspeaker on the rear bottom of the smartphone. The volume rocker and the power button are placed on the right edge of the device. It will be available in White, Black, Red and Blue color options. The device will be officially launched next week, and the expected pricing will be less than $100.
Recently, the company also launched the 6-inch smartphone called Bluboo Maya Max. It comes with a 6-inch HD (1280 x 720 pixels) display along with a 2.5D glass laid on top. Under the hood is the MediaTek MT6750 octa-core processor clocked at 1.5GHz and coupled with Mali T860 GPU for gaming. It has 3GB of RAM and 32GB of expandable storage. In the camera department, the Bluboo Maya Max features a 13MP autofocus rear camera with f/2.0 aperture and a 5MP selfie camera on the front.
