BLU Win HD with a 64-bit processor and LTE support sells for $199
Microsoft Store US is selling an unlocked BLU Win HD LTE
BLU has released a new version of the BLU Win HD smartphone which comes with some significant improvements compared with the older model.
The new BLU Win HD has a 64-bit quad-core Snapdragon 410 processor instead of the old and slow Snapdragon 200. The new processor supports LTE 4G, so customers can connect to T-Mobile and AT&T’s 4G networks in the US for just $199 without a contract. Another improvement is in the battery department – a larger 2500 mAh battery has been used in the new device compared with 2200 mAh in the older variant.
The remaining specs are the same: a 5-inch HD screen, 1 GB of RAM, 8 Gigs of storage, microSD, 8MP + 2MP camera. BLU Win HD LTE is offered in four colors and runs Windows Phone 8.1 Update 1 out of the box, with a promise for a future upgrade to Windows 10.
For $199, the BLU Win HD looks like a competitor to the Lumia 640 which is yet to arrive in the US.
