The BLU S1 has a 5.2-inch HD display, runs on an Octa-Core Mediatek's MTK6750 SoC with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of storage space. On the back of the phone is a 13-megapixel rear-facing camera, while a 5-megapixel sensor is available in front. The device has a 2,800mAh battery as well.
This device leaked earlier and was picked up by a number of news sources. It is said to be currently available on Best Cellular at a price of $159.95, discounted from $179.99.
An even more remarkable bit of information found on the site is that BLU S1 is said to be the first BLU device that will work with Sprint or one of its MVNOs. If this proves to be true, it would mean that BLU will finally be allowing non-GSM device users to use their products since Sprint operates on CDMA network.
Although nothing has been made official yet, it's interesting to see that when you visit Sprint's coverage site, you'll find the BLU S1 has been included under the Newest devices. If this proves to be true, Sprint could be making the announcement anytime soon.
