We haven’t heard much about BLU Products lately except for the Vivo XL and Vivo 5 that were launched back in January during the CES week. Compared to last year when the company would announce a new product almost every month, first quarter was quite slow for the American mobile phone manufacturer. There’s nothing to worry though as two new phones have just been announced. Meet the BLU Dash X2 and the BLU Dash M2 Android phones that are attractively affordable at less than $100.

The two models are metal bodied Android phones. We can’t say full-metal yet because the front panels appear to be plastic. That fact is surprising because their prices are unbelievable at $70 and $85. The Dash X2 and M2 both run a 1.3 GHz quad-core MediaTek MT6580 chipset and are equipped with 5-inch screens. There is a difference in display resolution as the M2 only has 480 x 854 resolution while the X2 has 720 x 1280 pixel resolution.

The Dash M2 also comes equipped with A 5MP rear camera, a 2MP front-facing cam, 4GB storage, microSD card slot, and only 512MB RAM. On the other hand, the BLU Dash X2 boasts of a 2MP selfie cam, 8MP main camera, 8GB expandable memory, and 2GB RAM.


The phones both run Android 6.0 Marshmallow out of the box already. BLU can keep the prices low because for one, there’s no 4G/LTE connectivity–only WiFi.

  1. Wow, these phones are obsolete out of the box, particularly the M2. 512 RAM 4 GB wouldn’t even run Android 3.0 properly let alone Marshmallow- “expandable” storage is tenuous at best- really just doesn’t work with enough apps to be able to run anything on this phone… and no 4G?? Blu has better phones on the market already at similar price points. You really need 2 RAM and 16 GB as a starting point for new phones… 1/8 is borderline and anything less is just useless. The Vivo XL will cost you more, but is a WAY better value. Metal is cool and all, but if the phone sucks its just a chunk of metal.
