Blu’s low cost WP8.1 handset gives the NL 630 a run for its money (hands-on video)


One of the devices shown off at Computex on Wednesday was US-based Blu’s lower cost Windows Phone handset.

The handset has a screen around 4 inches with a WVGA resolution.

It also sports a 3.2 megapixel camera with Flash, but lacks a dedicated camera button. It does however sport a front-facing camera and capacitive navigation buttons.

It is also a dual-SIM handset, which should suit some of the markets Blu operates in.

It is not known what the rest of the specs are, but it is assumed to be similar to the Nokia Lumia 630.

MobileGeeks, who had a hands-on, notes the handset is as snappy as one expects, but does feel quite flimsy, an attribute hopefully commensurate with a very low cost also.

The as yet unnamed handset will be coming to US and Latin America soon.

See a hands-on video after the break.
