Bluboo Edge - 5.5 inch phablet in a curvy design

China smartphones in a curvy design, i.e. with a rounded display, similar to the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge, are currently very much in vogue. Bluboo also jumps on this bandwagon and publishes the Bluboo Edge, a 5.5 inch smartphone that is in the lower middle class. All information about the new Bluboo smartphone can be found in this post.

The Low Budget S7 Edge?

Hardware for the small purse

At first glance, the front of the Bluboo Edge looks confusingly similar to a Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge. Nevertheless, you shouldn't be fooled, because this smartphone has much weaker hardware installed under the hood. The processor amounts to an economical MediaTek MTK6737 SoC, which has a total of 4 cores that clock with a maximum of 1.3GHz. The processor graphics is a Mali-T720 GPU that can handle games that are not too demanding. If, on the other hand, you want to play graphically more demanding games on your future smartphone, you should use a more powerful smartphone. With a working memory of 2GB, the smartphone is suitable for smaller multitasking tasks and should be sufficient for smooth usability in everyday life. The internal memory is comparatively small at only 16GB, but can be expanded by a maximum of another 256GB with an SD memory card. However, you should note that when using the memory expansion you have to forego the dual SIM function at the same time, because the Bluboo Edge is only equipped with a so-called "hybrid SIM slot".

Bluboo Edge specifications

A look at the display

Many smartphones are advertised as "bezel-less" or "edge-less" and actually offer this feature on the render images. As soon as the device is available, however, the disappointment is often great, because what still looked borderless in the photos is in fact far from it. The Bluboo Edge also promises a 5.5 inch OGS HD display in a curvy design, similar to a Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge. If you look at videos published so far about the device, the display actually comes very close to a "bezel-less display".

Bluboo Edge features the Curvy Display Like Samsung S7 Edge

To implement the Curvy display, Bluboo relies on a Sharp OGS display panel. Here, the touchscreen and the display form a unit, whereby an even better color representation is achieved. The weight can also be reduced with an OGS panel, as there is no additional glass layer between the display and the touchscreen. However, it is disadvantageous that if the display is damaged, the touchscreen will also be affected.

Camera, fingerprint scanner and more!

The main camera of the Bluboo Edge has a resolution of 13 megapixels. However, this value is interpolated, i.e. digitally extrapolated, which is why the native resolution is only 8 megapixels. The manufacturer is silent about the exact name of the image sensor. A “Custom Sony Sensor” is installed. The main camera also comes with an auto focus and an LED flash. The front camera has an interpolated 8 or native 5 megapixels.

Another feature is the fingerprint scanner, which is housed within the home button. Bluboo promises a short unlocking time of less than a second, 360 ° recognition, and it is possible to save up to 5 finger profiles. The home button also offers smart operating options and is illuminated on the outer edges.

An extraordinary feature is a small heart rate monitor, which is located below the LED flash. This works with a green LED and a light-sensitive photodiode that measures the blood flow.

Heart Rate Monitor

According to the price, the Bluboo Edge is only equipped with the most necessary sensors. It includes a proximity sensor, a brightness sensor, an acceleration sensor and a G-sensor. GPS is supported. There is also a Bluetooth 4.0 module and a WiFi module (802.11b / g / n). The smartphone is also compatible with all 2G, 3G and 4G network standards (including LTE band 20!). The capacity of the battery is a comparatively low 2600 mAh.
