Both the devices pack 1.8″ color displays. The image quality most certainly won’t be brilliant but at this price range you’re typically looking at monochrome screens. They even have a camera capable of video recording although the press release doesn’t say anything about resolution. But any camera is a step above none, right?
A probably more useful feature is the microSD card slot, which supports cards up to 8GB, along with an FM radio with a built-in antenna. The BLU Jenny and Tank also offer Bluetooth connectivity. And not to be outdone by the Nokia, they have a flashlight as well.
Where the two BLU phones differ is the battery – Jenny uses a 900mAh battery and promises over a week of “regular usage”. Tank lives up to its name and doubles the capacity – 1800mAh is impressive even by smartphone standards. The phone is said to last up to a month between charges.
Anyway, the key selling point of both phones is the pricing. Jenny aims for a €15/$19 (OR 7.3) or below price, while Tank is just one more expensive – €16/$20 (OR 7.6). The duo will be available in markets sometime later next year.
