BLU Products has started selling two smartphones in India today. They both run Windows Phone 8.1 at the moment, but are promised to get updates to Windows 10 Mobile.
The BLU Win HD LTE and BLU Win JR LTE are already up for grabs at Amazon India, and they should be followed by some Android offerings from BLU in November. That’s also when we’ll see BLU feature phones launching in the subcontinent.
In the meantime, Windows Phone fans are going to be pleased. For INR 7,999 ($122 or €108), the BLU Win HD LTE (pictured above) delivers a 5-inch 720p touchscreen, an 8 MP rear camera with LED flash, a 2 MP selfie shooter, 1GB of RAM, 8GB of expandable storage, dual-SIM functionality, and a 2,500 mAh battery. It’s powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 410 SoC with a 1.2 GHz quad-core Cortex-A53 CPU.
The BLU Win JR LTE is even cheaper at INR 5,999 ($91, €81), and it comes with a 4.5-inch 480×854 touchscreen, a 5 MP rear camera with LED flash, a VGA front-facing unit, 512MB of RAM, 4GB of expandable storage, dual-SIM support, and a 2,000 mAh battery. At the helm is the same chipset as in the Win HD LTE.
