After ZTE’s ZMax, another sub-$100 fingerprint phone can now be bought by residents of the US in the Blu Studio Touch.
The phone is, as you’d expect, fairly entry-level. Yet, the pricing makes it an attractive option for people looking for a secondary phone or a very affordable first.
Let’s take a quick look at the spec sheet of the Blu Studio Touch:
- 5-inch 1280 x 720p display
- 64-bit 1GHz quad-core processor from MediaTek
- 1GB RAM
- 8GB on-board ROM with microSD slot
- 8 mega-pixel main camera
- 5 mega-pixel front facing camera
- Fingerprint sensor
The phone is available for $99 via Amazon. According to Blu, a 2GB+16GB version will be made available in September with a price difference of just $109. So if you can hold off till then, it could be a worthy wait.
Also, for those worried about network compatibility, here’s what the listing says ‘US compatibility Nationwide on all GSM Networks including AT&T, T-Mobile, Cricket, MetroPCS, Straight Talk, Pure Talk USA, and others’. You should be covered, in that case.
