BLU V50 Highlights and Overview

BLU V50 is a basic entry-level smartphone from Blu Mobile launched in the US. It is actually the smaller variant of the Blu V70 and V90 sold via BestBuy, and comes in a 6.2-inches display with 720 x 1520 pixels. The display has 19:9 aspect ratio and a dewdrop notch overhead.

The design and specs are also very similar to the Blu G50 Plus launched earlier. It is powered by an octa-core UniSoC SC9863A CPU, clocked at 1.6Ghz along with PowerVR GE8322 GPU, 2GB of RAM and a 32GB internal storage.

On the camera department, you are getting a single 13-megapixel rear camera, with PDAF and LED flash, while a single 8-megapixel selfie lens seats in the notch upfront.

The device support dual Nano-SIMs with 4G LTE network, Bluetooth 4.x, a 4000mAh battery and available only in a single Black color, while Google Android 10 runs out of the box. Other key specifications of BLU V50 are detailed in the specification table below.

  1. Where can I purchase a Blu V50 protective cover skin case? I searched online Can’t find any on ebay google Blu web. Best buy sells the phone and the protective case is included with new phone. Contacted them but they don’t sell just the protective case. Anyone know where to purchase? Is another BLU model the same.

  2. Thank you Stephen. I’m looking at that AMAZON case. Might get it. Good to know the Blu G50 plus matches the Blu v50. I like the case that comes with the new Blu v50 sold at Best Buy. I’ll keep watching. Maybe someone will sell theirs. Dan

  3. I paid 149 for this phone at best buy and I have been having issues with finding a network to cover it I had simple mobile now they are saying they don’t cover this phone
