It has a 2MP front camera, and a 8MP rear camera with LED flash even, with 1080p video recording support too. The battery capacity is 3700 mAh, while the weight is 266 grams, with a thickness of 8.5 mm.
Blu forgot to tell us the Wi-Fi specs, but it has Wi-Fi and Bluetooth too, as well as a micro-USB 2.0 port. It also has the four color options white, grey, blue, and gold. And as you’ll notice, it has a very thin bezel for a 7-inch tablet.
The main rival in this tablet category are the many Asus Fonepad tablets.
