If you’re looking to try out the BOLD N1, you can purchase one from their site for a special price (at the time of writing) of US$199.
BOLD is a subsidy of BLU, a phone company based in the United States that offers entry-level to mid-range smartphones. If you’re not familiar with BLU, that’s because U.S. carriers don’t generally offer devices from this company. You can, however, stop by Walmart or Target to purchase one or snag one from Amazon.
As far as specs go on the BOLD N1, on paper, they’re leaning towards the higher end of the mid-range market. The mid-range smartphone features a 6.4-inch FHD+ AMOLED Infinity display with Gorilla Glass 5. There’s a dual-camera setup on the back of the device with the main shooter coming in at 16MP and the depth lens being 5MP. The camera uses Sony’s IMX499 sensor which also adds a 96MP Super Zoom feature. The front-facing pop-up camera is 13MP and will be using a Samsung sensor.
The phone itself will be running off of the Mediatek Helio P70 SoC, come with 4GB of RAM, and 128GB of internal storage that can also be expanded up to 128GB with a Micro SD card. On the battery side, you’re getting a 3,500mAh battery that should get you through the day. If not, it comes with an 18W charger and the ability to charge wirelessly.
Design-wise, it’s the classic metal and glass sandwich like most other flagship handsets out there these days. There’s also an in-display fingerprint scanner on the device too. And that’s not all this guy can do. BOLD is stating that this phone, unlike BLU smartphones, will actually be getting the next Android letter update. Or in this case, Android 10. BLU budget and mid-range smartphones have been notorious for not receiving the latest Android updates which can cause users to switch to a different phone to make sure that they’re handset is up-to-date on security.
If you’re looking to try out the BOLD N1, you can purchase one from their site for a special price (at the time of writing) of US$199 or on Amazon for US$249.99. Given the specs and what the cost and it getting constant Android updates going forward, it might be worth trying out.
