BLU S1 is company's first Sprint-compatible phone, sports 5.2" 720p display and MediaTek MT6750

We first heard about the BLU S1 nearly two months ago, and the leaked specifications were spot-on. Now, the device has officially been announced as BLU's first Sprint-compatible and Sprint-certified device, and although the specs are nothing impressive, it'll cost just $179.99 (or $129.99 if you order very soon).

BLU announces the VIVO 8L with a 20MP selfie camera, available today on Amazon

It seems like you can't turn around without BLU releasing another budget-oriented unlocked phone. The VIVO line is BLU's slightly more "premium" product family, and the latest addition to it packs some interesting hardware. The BLU VIVO 8L has similar internals to other BLU devices, but the front-facing camera packs a whopping 20MP of resolution.

BlackBerry and BLU settle patent dispute and agree on license agreement

A couple of months ago we learned that BlackBerry CEO John Chen decided a good way to arrest his company's decline was to go into patent lawsuit mode. His first victim was rival manufacturer BLU, against which BlackBerry filed two separate infringement lawsuits covering 15 different patents. One of the suits was mainly based on software while the other looked at hardware, specifically relating to phone signal transmission.

BLU's S1 leaks on Sprint's site, may be the first BLU phone to come to the network

BLU doesn't make the best phones out there, but they present a fantastic value. The company has a history of delivering "good-enough" at a great price. So with Sprint's coverage site spilling the beans on the upcoming BLU S1, customers on the CDMA carrier should have reason to celebrate.

BLU releases VIVO 8 with 5.5" display, 4GB RAM, and 64GB storage at $199 for the first 2 days ($299 after)

Blu devices aren't having the best time lately, what with the whole privacy and alleged spyware story and their sad update track record that's left almost the entire lineup at Marshmallow. But the value for money proposition of Blu is still nice and for a non-geeky user, their devices might still carry a lot of appeal. Besides, the spyware snafu seems to be resolved now. So keep that more positive outlook in mind as I tell you about the new VIVO 8.

As far as I can tell, this is Blu's first Nougat 7.0 device (I could have sworn one phone got an update to Nougat, but I can't find any info on that now).

After a short hiatus, BLU phones are back on Amazon

Earlier this week Amazon took some of the low-budget manufacturer BLU's phones off the retailer's digital shelves, following allegations that BLU had included spyware in its products. It seems to have been a false alarm, though, as today BLU has announced in a tweet that Amazon is back to stocking its phones. Customers looking to pick up a cheap and capable phone can again purchase them at the US' biggest online merchant.

Amazon suspends sales of BLU phones due to alleged spyware, BLU denies wrongdoing

BLU is one of many low-end phone manufacturers, known for its dirt-cheap unlocked Android phones. But back in November, a security firm discovered spyware on some BLU phones sold in the United States, prompting Amazon to stop selling the affected devices until the issue was resolved.

[I thought it was 2017?] BLU updates its Life One X to Android 6.0 Marshmallow

In a surprising (and overlooked) turn of events, a couple weeks ago hardware-maker BLU updated its Life One X away from Lollipop. Unfortunately for users, although it is nice for a 2015 $99 entry-level device to see new software, it's only been taken as far as Android 6.0 Marshmallow. That's right, it's mid-2017, and BLU is only now updating a phone that came out in 2015 to an operating system from 2015.
