The smartphone houses the speaker grille and the 3.5mm audio jack at the bottom, on each side of the USB Type-C port. The volume buttons and the power button sit on the right edge of the device. The Blu Pure XR sports a metal unibody, 3D touch sensitivity, thin bezels, and invisible antenna lines.
As for specifications, the Blu Pure XR runs on Android 6.0 Marshmallow and supports dual-SIM cards.
