Bluboo S1 - budget competitor of Xiaomi Mi Mix

If you follow the mobile technology market, you probably know that the main trends among smartphones are now a dual camera and frameless. The company Bluboo decided to combine all the advanced solutions in its new smartphone S1. On three sides, its display from the company Sharp is almost completely devoid of frames, and on the back there is a double 16-megapixel camera. The heart of the Bluboo S1 was the eight-core Helio P25 processor with a clock speed of 2.5 GHz. This chipset has proven itself in middle-class devices. In addition, Bluboo S1 has 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of ROM.

The first thing Bluboo S1 draws attention to its appearance. The market already has several devices with a similar design, but the frameless is still a novelty, and the attention of others around you is exactly guaranteed. The 5.5-inch display with Full HD resolution produced by the Japanese company Sharp is covered with a tempered glass of Gorilla Glass of the fourth generation. On the sides and on top, it has minimal frames, and at the bottom there is a 360-degree fingerprint scanner, combined with the "Home" button and the front 8-megapixel camera.

The second feature of the Bluboo S1 is the dual camera. The manufacturer installed a 16-megapixel sensor in combination with a second VGA-module, responsible for measuring the distance to objects. This allows you to take pictures with a blurry background to highlight the main subject in the frame.
