BLU's $50 R1 HD gets updated to support T-Mobile Band 12 and VoLTE

BLU doesn't have a particularly great reputation for its phones' software, and the recent discovery of spyware on its phones, including those sold in the US, certainly didn't help it.

Android Pay has existed for more than a year now. It's expanded far beyond the original US launch, but there's a lot of the world still to go.
