After Samsung announced a while ago in South Korea the 7-inch smartphone called Galaxy W, now this trend of big phones arrived in other regions too, more precisely in US where BLU Products just launched the STUDIO 7.0 smartphone that brings as its name suggest, a 7 inch screen.

Looking at its build quality, we notice that the phone brings a polycarbonate case with a soft touch texture on the back that is similar to the one used on the Samsung Galaxy S5. BLU Studio 7.0 arrives on the market in 4 different color variations (white, gray, blue and gold) at a $150 price tag.

    I’ve been looking at combining both phone and tablet, and this fits the bill. Just wish the specs were a bit better. No mention of LTE/VoLTE. Would be nice to have full HD screen resolution, WiFi-calling and Lollipop. It is only $150 so really can’t expect much. Wonder how this works on T-Mobile.

    We have been waiting for this device with these kind of specs. for awhile. Kudos Blu! Wish those batteries were 35-3800 instead of the mere 3000. Nice move with the twin speakers and the GPS – we’ll fake it!
