If you are interested in an unlocked Android smartphone and you are not hung up on buying something from one of the “name” manufacturers, then Best Buy may have a new option available for you. Introduced earlier this month at CES 2016, the BLU Vivo XL is now available for online orders from the retailer.
The BLU Vivo XL is equipped with a Mediatek processor running at 1.3GHz and is backed by 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal memory that can be expanded by another 64GB using a microSD card. This processing power drives a 5.5-inch Super AMOLED display running at 1280 x 720 resolution. The Vivo XL has a 13MP rear-facing camera and a 5MP front-facing camera, supports 4G LTE speeds and is running Android 5.1 Lollipop.
Although the Vivo XL is unlocked, it currently only supports GSM based networks like AT&T or T-Mobile. Best Buy is taking orders for the Solid Gold or Midnight Blue versions and they indicate the phone typically ships within 1 business day.
As a special launch offer, Best Buy has knocked $50 off the normal retail price, so you can grab this smartphone for only $99. Best Buy anticipates adding the BLU Vivo V to the product lineup in February.
