With the ever-growing smartphone market in Nepal showing no signs of stopping, Bluboo, a fairly new company is expected to make an entrant. The company, as expected, will work their way up through launching four new budget-friendly smartphones — including the Bluboo D6, S3, S8, and S8+ — in Nepal.
First, let’s take a look at the Bluboo S3, the company’s own Hulk. The “Hulk” moniker is because of its humongous footprint and the 8,500mAh battery. In the world full of smartphones struggling to provide a great battery backup, the Bluboo S3 promises to deliver up to 6 days of battery life. That’s some ridiculous number on itself. On top of that, the phone’s also capable of acting as an alternative powerbank if in case you need those juice.
Another thing is that the phone’s got a 6-inch (18:9) 1080p Sharp display, a MediaTek 6750 octa-core chipset, 4GB of RAM and 64GB of expandable storage. Optically, the phone features Samsung’s 21MP + 5MP dual sensor at the back, while the front’s highlighted by another 13MP selfie snapper from Samsung.
Talking about another smartphone, the Bluboo S8+, the device’s back resembles Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus: meaning, it’s premium to some extent. It has got a similar 6-inch IPS LCD display, MediaTek 6750T chipset, 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage. The battery though doesn’t even come close to that of the S3: just an average 3,600mAh one.
The Bluboo S8 is a downgraded version of the S8+. The handset sports a smaller 5.7-inch (18:9) screen from Sharp, 3GB of RAM, 32GB of expandable storage, and an average 3,450mAh battery. The cameras at the back consist of the 13MP+3MP sensor from Sony, whilst the selfie snapper sits at a mere 5MP.
Out of all three devices, the Bluboo D6 is rather budget alternative but with a bit of a trendy design. The front’s a 5.5-inch LCD screen with a notch, 2GB of RAM and 16GB of storage. At the back, the phone has a pair of 5MP+5MP dual-camera, whereas the front has also a 5MP f/2.8 lens. There’s also a facial unlock feature alongside the fingerprint security.
According to the report, the four smartphones are expected to hit the Nepali market in September. However, there’s no word about pricing and availability of the phones.
