Blu introduced two new smartphones to the US market – the Life One (2015 Edition) and the Life 8 XL. We met the Life One (2015) at CES in January, while the Life 8 XL is an entirely new handset.
Blu Life One (2015 Edition) packs a 5″ 720p IPS display and runs on the Snapdragon 410 chip with 1GB of RAM. It offers a 13MP rear camera and a 5MP selfie shooter, 8 gigs of expandable storage and a 2,820 mAh battery. The Life One (2015) is dual-SIM enabled and supports LTE Cat.4 connectivity.

Blu Life 8 XL has a bigger 5.5″ 720p IPS display and packs more horsepower under the hood thanks to a MT6592M chip with an octa-core Cortex-A7 processor. There is an 8MP rear and a 2MP front snappers, while it also offers 1GB of RAM, 8GB of expandable storage, dual-SIM connectivity (but no LTE), and a beefy 2,920 mAh battery.

Blu Life 8 XL is also available for pre-order at Amazon US – it costs $129 and will be released on July 1.
Both Blu Life One (2015) and Life 8 XL run on Android KitKat, but they will be updated to Lollipop later this year. Hopefully Blu releases those updates soon, as Android M is already upon us.
