Smartphones with very small frames and almost non-existent edges are in fashion. Xiaomi was the precursor with its Xiaomi Mi MIX and we have already seen several terminals very similar to this, as is the case of the Bluboo S1, which we can find currently available for just under 140 € in Gearbest. So, let’s see the new Bluboo S8.
Bluboo S8: Design
However, other well-known brands like Samsung have also decided to jump on the cart of smartphones without frames, and the Samsung Galaxy S8 is proof that this is more than a fashion. That is why other manufacturers less known as Bluboo have submitted their proposals in the Chinese market, and today just filtered one of these in the form of Galaxy S8; We talk about the new Bluboo S8.
If we look back at the Bluboo S1, we can see that it is a terminal very similar to the Xiaomi Mi MIX. Due to its excellent design and its exaggerated economic price, it is a smartphone that has worked very well in terms of sales; So much so that Bluboo itself has decided to launch a worthy successor for this one: Bluboo S8.
As we can see in the filtered image above, it is a terminal very similar to the Samsung Galaxy S8, but with clear differences. On the one hand, we can see that the fingerprint sensor is located at the bottom of the camera sensor, which is a better position than the Samsung model.
Bluboo S8: Display
The diagonal of the Sharp display is 5.7 inches at a resolution of 1440 x 720 pixels. This is the ideal display, which is suitable for any user. It combines good proportions and remarkable color transfer quality.
Bluboo S8: Hardware and Performance
The device is equipped with a single-chip system MediaTek Helio X30. In addition, you can choose two modifications that are 4 or 6 GB of RAM and 64 or 128 GB of non-volatile memory.
Bluboo S8: Cameras
On the other hand, we can see that it has a double camera and something like an infrared sensor to measure the distances of objects, which augurs very good results in terms of the photographic section.
On the back of the Bluboo S8 are a vertical dual camera and a fingerprint scanner. As the main sensor of the camera is used 13-megapixel Sony IMX214, and an auxiliary sensor at 3 MP is needed to obtain information about the depth of the frame. Working together, they allow you to take photos with a blurred background.
Bluboo S8: Conclusions and Available
If Bluboo does a good job with this terminal and offers a price similar to other terminals of the company, it can be a headache for the big ones like Samsung or LG. The release of the smartphone is expected in late July. In the meantime, you can take a look at the promotion of the Bluboo S1 in Gearbest.
