Following the launch of the Bluboo S1 tri-bezel-less model (which is currently on sale on Gearbest for $159.99) the chinese manufacturer announced the preparations for their second full-screen piece Bluboo S8. This phone should be coming with the 18:9 display aspect ratio and we have some first pictures for you revealing the planned design concept of “Simplification”.
Gizchina News of the week
As you can see from the pictures the new Bluboo S8 is not going to be the tri-bezel-less model, but the upper/lower bezels will be quite thin. That means migration of the fingerprint reader to the back of the device just below the cameras. Speaking of which, the dual cameras in the back will be aligned vertically and will be adopting Sony IMX214 as the primary 13 MP sensor with a 3 MP secondary one for good measure.
The back panel of the device will be also processed with IML electroplating technology bringing some multi-color visual effect, the so -called CD effect. But it still should be very tough and scratch resistant no matter the design choices. You can refer to the video below for the better idea about that.
With the design revelations out of the way we can hope for some soon-to-unveiled hardware details about the upcoming Bluboo S8, because that’s the most important thing people are waiting for. We will keep you informed as soon as we know more.
