The unfortunate and unconditional recall of the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 did not stop the advance of smartphones that come equipped with a curved display. A trait which you will now find on many smartphones including the Huawei Mate 9 Porsche Design and the Xiaomi Note 2. In fact, it is also believed that other manufacturers including the likes of LG, HTC, Meizu and OPPO may also be working on dual curved design smartphones.
It is easy to see though why such a design is so popular both among manufacturers and consumers. After all, a curved design is more recognizable compared to smartphones with curved-free screens. Which does mean that owners of a curved display smartphone are afforded a unique and completely new visual experience. Not to mention that the curved design also allows for better gripping of a smartphone. So as well as the aesthetically pleasing factor, there is also a comfort benefit as well.
Bluboo Mobile, a Chinese smartphone manufacturer is no exception to this rule and they are another company who is looking to diversify its portfolio by also including a curved display smartphone. In fact, they already have released their first smartphone with a dual curved display, the Bluboo Edge. In addition, Bluboo also claims that there is more to follow with the Edge model being only the first device the company will be releasing which will come with a curved display.
In terms of what else you can expect with the Bluboo Edge, this is a smartphone which comes equipped with a 5.5-inch OGS HD display which offers additional usage when the wearer is wearing gloves or their hands are wet. Inside, the Bluboo Edge comes loaded with 2GB RAM, 16GB internal storage and is powered by a MediaTek MT6737 quad-core processor (clocked at 1.3 GHz). Cameras come in the form of a 13-megapixel rear camera which is coupled with an 8-megapixel front-facing camera. While additional features include expandable storage (cards up to 256GB supported), a fingerprint sensor, heart rate monitor and Android 6.0 (Marshmallow) out of box. If this sounds like a smartphone that you might be interested in, then it is worth knowing that the Bluboo Edge is currently available to pre-order for only $129.99. In addition, Bluboo Mobile is currently running giveaway events where the winners will bag themselves a free Bluboo Edge smartphone. The pre-order phase will remain active up until November 24, at which point the price will be set at the normal retail price of $139.99.
