Bluboo Dual Offers Amazing Depth-of-field Control

Written by Andrew Maxwell

Bluboo has already been in the news recently, wooing interest with its double whammy market debuts for the Bluboo Edge and Bluboo Dual. The Edge is now available on presale, and the official specs for the Dual have now been released by Bluboo. Rather than simply whetting our appetites, the company has now given us some concrete information to learn about the Dual.

The Dual’s body is a full metal, unibody design, which makes good use of aviation aluminum alloy. It looks great, partly due to the brushing, which adds emphasis to the overall metallic style. The product’s name comes from the fact that it has a dual camera setup. The two cameras featured, are a 13.0MP and a 2.0MP. The main camera is built by Sony, and its function is to capture the image.

Product Highlights
  • Android 6.0
  • MTK6737 Quad Core 1.5GHz processor
  • 2GB RAM / 16GB ROM
  • Accepts TF cards up to 256GB
  • 5.5″ display (Full HD 1080P) with Gorilla Glass 4
  • Dual rear cameras (13MP + 2MP) with LED light
  • 5MP front camera
  • 3000mAh battery

The second, smaller camera, is used to capture depth information. The whole idea is to have more control over the depth of field in photos. By using two cameras at the same time, you can increase or decrease the depth, or perhaps choose a specific point of focus when shooting.

Just next to the two cameras, there is a dual-LED flash. Then, on the back, right in the middle, there is a 8.0 selfie camera, which has a wide-angle lens. The display is made by SHARP, and it’s a 5.5-inch display, built into the front panel of the Dual. This display has FHD resolution and makes use of Gorilla Glass 4. One interesting point about the Dual, is that it uses an advanced two-layer panel, which has multi-touch support.

The reason this is of interest, is that you can use it with gloves on, or even with wet fingers. This is a big plus and a major selling point for those who do manual work, or who struggle to use their phone right after getting out of the shower.

It was rumored that the Dual would make use of a Kirin SoC, although this has turned out to be false. The actual processor used by the Dual, is the Quad-core MT 6737T, which runs at 1.5GHz. In terms of memory, there is 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage, which can be expanded up to 256GB.

Some other interesting features about the Dual, are a gyroscope and OTG support. It is powered by a 3000mAh battery and uses the Android 6.0 Marshmallow operating system. The phone itself is going to be made available in three different colors. These will be black, gold and rose gold.

The Dual will be listed at a reasonable price and the presale, according to Bluboo, is currently ongoing – running from December 5th until December 18th. There will, as usual, be a special event held for the presale, which will include a discount for the Dual. Popular online store GearBest is also currently accepting orders for the Bluboo Dual at $114.99. Click here for more details.

We will wait to see, with interest, whether this second Bluboo product will be able to attract the same level of interest – or even greater – than the Edge.
