U.S phone maker BLU have taken the octacore Nibiru H1 and rebranded it as the BLU Life 8 which will go on sale soon.
BLU have made a living of taking Chinese phones and repackaging them for the U.S market. In the past we have seen mostly Gionee models seeing the BLU name printed on them, but now the K-touch made Nibiru H1 gets in on the action.

The Nibiru H1 or the BLU Life 8 gets an octacore MT6592 processor, 1GB RAM, 2000mAh battery and 5-inch 720p display. Pricing hasn’t been revealed yet but a wallet friendly price can be expected.[ Source ]
nothing new….. in Romania we have Allview thats doing the same thing. Too bad that don’t offer updates for android
The best thing about Blu phones is they are fairly simple to root, are bloat free and for some models (especially Life Play series) there are dozens of Roms that have been ported to it. I ran MIUI on my Life Play when I had it.
