BLU Studio 7.0 goes official with large screen and low price

17 December, 2014

BLU took the wraps off the affordable Studio 7.0 tablet with 3G connectivity. Curiously, despite its considerable size, the Miami-based manufacturer calls the slate "the world's first 7-inch smartphone.”

BLU Studio 7.0 packs a 7” display with the rather lowly resolution of 1024 x 600 pixels. The device features MediaTek chipset with 1.3GHz dual-core CPU, Mali 400 GPU, and 1GB of RAM. Network connectivity of the slate includes quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE and tops out at 21Mbps HSPA+.

The rest of the device’s specs include 8GB of built-in memory, microSD card slot, 5MP main camera, and 2MP front-facing snapper. Android 4.4.2 KitKat is the default OS out of the box.

Physical measures of the BLU Studio 7.0 are 187.5 x 103 x 9.4mm, while its weight tips the scale at 294 grams. A 3,000mAh battery powers the slate.

BLU Studio 7.0 is available to order on Amazon in the United States for $149.99. There are four available colors - white, gray, blue, and gold.
