It’s not that often you come across a dual-SIM Android phone in the U.S. that has spacious display and good specs. The special edition Galaxy Note 2, which comes with dual-SIM support, is a great if somewhat expensive option, but its global release hasn’t been confirmed yet. For something less extravagant that doesn’t necessarily scream budget, there’s always the BLU Vivo 4.3.
We reported about the BLU Vivo 4.3 back in August, when it was hinted that it’d greet customers starting in September. You can stop scouring the web for news of its release as the phone is now up for sale with several online retailers, such as Amazon and Negri Electronics. The dual-SIM phone is being offered for $269.99 and $234.50, respectively.
The fact that it comes unlocked does make the BLU Vivo a rather attractive package for folks who aren’t looking to get tied into a mobile contract. But we’re sure you want to know what the phone is packing inside.
The rather elegant-looking Vivo 4.3 boasts a 4.3-inch Super AMOLED Plus display with 480 x 800 resolution, 1GHz dual-core MediaTek MT6577 processor, 1GB RAM, 4GB onboard storage, microSD slot, 8MP rear camera, 1.3MP front cam, Bluetooth 3.0, WiFi, 1,600 mAh battery, and Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. The phone is 3G HSDPA ready and of course, it has two SIM card slots inside (dual-standby).
