BLU G5 Highlights and Overview

BLU G5 is the latest smartphone from BLU Mobility, launched in July 2019. The device comes in a 5.5-inch HD+ display with 720 x 1440 pixels resolution and runs on the Spreadtrum/UniSoC SC9863A CPU, clocked at 1.6 GHz along with PowerVR GE8322 GPU. It has 2GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage.

At the back of the BLU G5 comes a single 13-megapixel rear placed camera sensor, featuring PDAF and a single LED flash, while selfie duties are left to 8-megapixel front-facing camera sensors. Unfortunately, the device does not have fingerprint scanner, but users can benefit from the usual Android security locks, including FaceID.

You are also getting support for dual Nano-SIMs with a 4G LTE network, Bluetooth 4.1, a 3000mAh battery, and Android 9.0 Pie out of the box. Other key specifications and silent features of the BLU G5 mobile phone are detailed in the specification table below.
