Bluboo to release world’s first global triple-SIM smartphone for an affordable price of $70
Chinese OEM, Bluboo has announced the Xfire 2, which is the world’s first global and affordable Android 5.0 smartphone with a triple SIM. The device is also rumoured to have a new sports-centric smartwatch.
The triple-SIM smartphone will come with a 5-inch display along with a 2.5D arc suspended capacitive touchscreen display that features HD (720p) resolution. It will run on a 1.3GHz quad-core MediaTek MT6580 processor.
The USP of the Bluboo Xfire 2 is that it will be the first ever Android smartphone to carry support for three SIM card slots. According to the Chinese company, the Xfire 2 will support two nano SIM slots and the third one, a micro SIM, can be turned into a microSD slot to extend the smartphone storage.
Bluboo’s triple-SIM smartphone is rumoured to likely pack 1GB of RAM and 8GB of internal memory that can be expanded up to 32GB.
It will probably ship with Android 5.1 Lollipop operating system right out of the box. It will come with a front-facing flash for its selfie camera. However, the exact specifications of the front-facing camera are not known yet.
Priced at $69.99, the Xfire 2 will be available for purchase throughout the world beginning January 2016. Bluboo Xfire 2 is likely to be retailed through major Chinese online resellers and the smartphone is expected to be shipped anywhere in the world at no additional cost.
