The Gionee Elife E8 has been on sale in China for months, but it isn’t an affordable phone at 3999 Yuan yet BLU have managed to rebrand the 2K flagship and offer it for just $350!
BLU have a long on going relationship with Gionee. It’s quite common to see Gionee phones show up with BLU branding and sold in the U.S, but this time I think customers States side really have a bargain.
While I was in Shenzhen I saw the Gionee Elife E8 selling for around 3999 Yuan which is about $630, while the exact same phone with BLU Pure XL written on it costs only $350 in the U.S.

At $350, the BLU Pure XL is one of the most affordable 2K phones on the market today, it also boasts a 24 mega-pixel main camera with Sapphire protection, 3GB RAM, 64GB memory plus room for a Micro SD card, DAC audio and a Mediatek Helio X10 chipset!
A 3500Ah battery seems a little on the small side, but with the latest Helio chips being quite efficient it might not spell the end of a long battery life. Being a true flagship there is also a fingerprint scanner on the rear of the 6-incher.
BLU are offering the Pure XL via Amazon from the 29th September, both gold and grey colour options will be on offer.
