BLU Products has just announced their latest smartphone called the Studio 5.5. It is a large model featuring a 5.5″ touch display and a 5MP rear camera. Unlike most new smartphone models, it may not be packed with the latest and greatest internal components, but this is intentional. Why you may ask? Because the BLU Studio 5.5 model is available for the low price of $179 without a contract, something that is unheard of compared to virtually all competing smartphones currently on the market.

Here are the known technical specs for the BLUE Studio 5.5:

  • 5.5″ touch display (480 x 854 resolution)
  • Quad-core MediaTek 1.2 GHz processor
  • Android 4.2 Jelly Bean (access to Google Play)
  • 5MP rear camera
  • 1080P video capabilities
  • 2250 mAh battery
  • 300 hrs of standby
  • 4 hours of talk time
  • Color choices: yellow, red, blue, white, black

The BLU Studio 5.5 is not yet available for purchase, but has been confirmed to be carried by Amazon and Best Buy in the near future.
