Just when we thought that 1,999 yuan (about US$309 today) for a so-called gaming smartphone is cheap, BLU Products come along and introduced BLU G91 Pro Gaming Smartphone.
At just US$249.99 a pop, it beats the Redmi K40 Gaming Enhanced Edition not just by price, but also availability since BLU Products is a Miami-based company and its phone is readily available stateside.
Granted, BLU G91 Pro Gaming Smartphone does not have Qualcomm Snapdragon 870. But at least it has a gaming-focused chipset, the MediaTek Helio G90 gaming chipset featuring a 2.05 GHz octa-core processor (2x ARM Cortex-A76 and 6x ARM Cortex-A55).
The chip is bolstered by an 800 MHz ARM Mali-G76 3EEMC4 GPU for graphics duties and packs 6 GB of RAM, and 128 GB of ROM. The latter is expandable up to 128 GB via a MicroSD card.
Furthermore, this being a BLU, you’d be getting an unadulterated pure Android experience (Android 11, in this instance). So, what’s not to love right? I mean, a gaming smartphone with pure Android experience and at under US$250. I don’t believe we have anything like that in the market at this point.
Fronting the device is a curved 6.7-inch in-cell FHD+ (2,400 x 1,080 pixels) display that packs 395 ppi and in 20:9 aspect ratio. Within this display, you will find a 16 MP hole-punch camera capable of 1080p (@ 30fps video recording.
Meanwhile, over at the rear, there is a quad-camera setup comprising of a 48 MP main camera, a 5 MP wide-angle (115o) camera, a 2 MP macro camera, and a 2 MP depth sensor. The main camera is capable of up to 4K videoing at 30 fps.
BLU G91 Pro Gaming Smartphone is available now exclusively on Amazon.com where there is a limited time discount of US$50 going on. This means you’d be scoring the device for just US$199.99.
However, do note that if you want the device at this price, be sure to act on it fast because we do not know when the offer will end.
On related news, BLU has also dropped its new BLU Aria Pod+, a pair of true wireless earbuds with 18 hours of battery life, for – believe it or not, just 30 bucks. Damn. How is BLU earning any money??!
