Bluboo S1 offers top dog features for a quarter the price

Let’s kick things off with a quick rundown of the Bluboo S1 specs. The S1 has a 5.5-inch, tri-bezel-less 2.5D curved display with Gorilla Glass 4 protection and 90% screen-to-body ratio. Powered by a Helio P25 processor and 4GB RAM (there’s a 6GB RAM variant available too), the S1 has a 3500mAh battery along with QuickCharge 1.0.

Also, there is a Sony dual rear camera that the manufacturer says produces greater depth and bokeh effects. Because it is tri-bezel-less (no bezels on 3 sides), there is room for the fingerprint scanner under the display in front of this smartphone.

So, if the Samsung Galaxy S8 and Xiaomi Mi Mix are too pricey for you, Bluboo S1 offers specifications that mostly match theirs and at a price about a quarter of what those big guns cost.

      Hi BSJD,

      No; those two networks won’t work on it. They use 40(2300), which isn’t listed for the Bluboo S1.
