    Extremely overpriced

    A little confused.
    14999 for the helio x10 version or the MT6753?

    If its for the MT6753 they they are crazy and didnt do their homework about the indian smartphone market.
    Lenovo is a reputed brand in India and sells many MT6752, MT6753 phones for less. So does other brands.

    For gods sake Xiaomi MI4 16gb version and Huawei Honor 6 is avail. for the same price.

    But if the price is for Helio x10 version. Then its very intresting.

      the 53, the helio x10 isn’t confirmed for India yet

    I think the price of $229 for a 5-incher, 3/32GB and Helio X10 would be a great bargain. But I lost trust in Bluboo after failed promises, false release dates and zero customer support.

    15000 rs for mt6753? no way. they cant even sell more than 1000 sets in india. we have lenevo k3 and meizu m2 note with same chipset for 10000, infocus m 810 with snapdragon 801 for 13000, and mi4c snapdragon 808 for 15000. why we even think for this crap. it will be a big flop in india

      Think Aircel + Bluboo will be doing booboo after this. They forget that there is internet in India and Gizchina on the internet. plus the many other websites. 😀

    Andi, I’d swear that I recently (past 2 weeks?) read an article here about a well spec’d Chinese smartphone that said it would be dual boot Lollipop + WP10. Do you recall which phone? Thanks!

      I think it was a tablet… There are some with dual boot, but no smartphone yet as i recall

      Could be the rumors about the Xiaomi Mi Pad 2

      It was probably an article about the Elephone Vowney.

    dear @Andi Sykes, in your last post you released different specs, what happened??

    “The more affordable Bluboo X500 will get a Medaitek MT6752 chipset…”

    please let it be this soc and not the 53 version!! if not, i might have to wait for the pro version…
    also, this is way to expensive. the price some resellers are putting up for presale sounded much more realistic at around $170.

      well, sadly the official specs show an MT6753 soc. 🙁

    @Gizchina:disqus on another note: you NEED to attend the “2015 Global Sources Autumn Electronics Show”, as BluBoo is there too and not only promised to show something new, but have already posted a picture of their booth and the banners have a XTouch and a smart watch on it! you might be able to get your hands on the Xtouch on that show! please be there!!! 😀

    The price is $50 higher then other phones with similar specifications (Zopo Speed 7, Doogee F3, Blackview Omega Pro). Does it even have an SD slot? I didn’t see it mentioned. That would be total fail.

      October 12, 2015

      well, you’re not quite wrong, but you ain’t right either. none of them has a fingerprint scanner, all of them have weaker batteries, the doogee f3 just has normal HD and 2GB ram (you thought of the f3 pro, didn’t you?), the blackview omega pro only has an HD-panel. none of them will have the materials that guarantee the Bluboo a fantastic (hopefully) build quality! so… no. none of them compares to it. 😉
