The BLUBOO S8 Is A New Contender In The 18:9 Display Race

by Habeeb Onawole 6

With the launch of the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus this year, we should expect to see more smartphones with the same 18:9 aspect ratio. Chinese company BLUBOO has entered the race with its upcoming phone, the BLUBOO S8.


The BLUBOO S8 is touted as the world’s first full-screen flagship phone powered by a MediaTek processor. The few details available says the phone will have a 5.7-inch HD+ screen with a 1440 x 720 resolution. It is said it will be powered by the still elusive Helio X30 processor.

The BLUBOO S8 will have a 4GB RAM + 64GB ROM model and a 6GB RAM + 128GB version. It will have dual Sony cameras on the back with dual LED flash. A leaked image of a working prototype shows it has on-screen buttons but is missing a front-mounted fingerprint scanner. So we expect the scanner is at the back.
