Bluboo say ‘No’ to presales, all Bluboo Xfire orders get immediate shipping


Chinese phone makers like to ensure they have orders before pulling the trigger and manufacturing a new device, but Bluboo are so confident in the Xfire that they are offering it with immediate shipping.

Bluboo send they wanted to offer the world the most affordable LTE phones, and with the Bluboo Xfire they have gotten pretty close. Online resellers have already started to advertise the affordable 5-inch phone, but unlike most launches the Xfire will be shipped upon payment.

Pricing for the Bluboo Xfire ranges, but you can find the phone for about $80 through the larger online portals. The devices comes in a range of colours (white, black and blue) and features a 64bit Mediatek MT6735 chipset, Android 5.1, 2750mAh battery and a 8 mega-pixel rear camera.

What do you think of the Bluboo Xfire? Is it really a bargain worth bagging?

    Who cares about no pre sales or no invites of Xfire? When Bluboo will launch and sell their Xtouch?

        I’m quite confident it is the sad true. They are absolutely silent about the phone during last couple of weeks. Not responding to question or at least denying the fact it is canceled.

        Unfortunately it seems there is no other Helio X10 5″ phone in the works. Such a great chipset and only used in a few phones, all of them too big and missing LTE 800MHz. 🙁

          I couldn’t agree more with you… I was aiming for the Xtouch too, as most of the top of the Chinese phone manufacturers still neglect the B20 band for 4G connectivity.

          The very few companies that do provide this support, and I hate to say it, are B-spec phones at their best.

            I completely gave up on waiting for Xtouch. Such a letdown and waste of my time waiting for it. Worst of all, they keep their mouth shut like everything is a Pentagon secret. Well, one buyer less for them, one more for some other Chinese brand. Good luck with your attitude.

              so a pity for those who allready pre-order this phone you found on all chinese seller stores.
              It’s a fact….a lot of these chinese brands make a nice 3d-drawing, put nice specs on it …(the phone doesn’t exist) but they have problems to make it..and launch the phone 6 months or more later. if you ask me…we all can do this…..but bluboo, elephone and others are DOING this allready a whole time.
              I have a lephone P6000…they promised an adroid 5.0 in 2014 with the lauch….where is the 5.0 now???

              When I placed an order on Nov. 24, the retailer-Gearbest said shipment would start after Nov 30. And now they told me the product is under quality check and they have no idea when to ship. I don’t know what it means. One thing for sure, it would take them forever to ship. It is really a waste of time. I asked for my refund.

      they still ask barely known reviewers via twitter if they want to review it. so there’s still hope! 😀

    I wish all brands did exactly the same: no presales and immediate shipping.
    Presales system is utterly annoying.

      But it’s a great way for those companies to overhype their rubbish phones, before reviews start to pop up
