Featuring a 5-inch IPS display with Corning Gorilla Glass 3 on top, BLU R1 HD was launched last year in June. It is powered by 1.3 GHz quad-core Mediatek MT6735 SoC and runs Android 6.0 Marshmallow. Under the hood, the phone carries either 1GB RAM and 8GB ROM or 2GB RAM and 16GB ROM. There’s an 8 MP primary camera with autofocus, LED flash and 5 MP front camera for clicking selfies. A 2500 mAh battery keeps the lights on.
