Another new brand is in town. Meet Bluboo a Hongkong based brand smartphone distributor that target mid-range devices. Initially spotted their Bluboo Official Philippines facebook page which features multiple devices like the S1 and S8 which are actually just less than P10,000. The S1 features a MediaTek Helio P25 processor with 4GB RAM, 64GB Storage, 16-megapixel rear and 8-megapixel front plus already running on Android Nougat.
Generously it comes also with a 3,500mAh battery for only P8,399 which is actually pretty competitive price. Also, another device posted on their page is the entry level Bluboo S8 an Octa Core1.5GHz Mediatek MT6750T powered device that also has a 3GB of RAM but with a lower storage of only 32GB.
The S8 at only P7,999 but features a dual lens camera, one 13-megapixel and 3-megapixel secondary lens. But surprisingly most of their devices also do have a Corning Gorilla Glass 4 protection for the display. Internal sources told me that they will have physical stores available soon.
Will keep you all posted once we have more information about this brand. But if you’re interested in their other devices they have various products available on their official website.
