In the multimedia department, the smartphone boasts of an 8-megapixel camera with the capability to autofocus and record videos in High Definition.

Fans of dual SIM devices will also be happy to note that the phone supports dual SIM standby. This enables user to receive messages and calls on both SIM cards at the same time, as well as save on expenses when the user selects the more cost-effective services from among two mobile operators. The smartphone is unlocked, as well.

The VIVO 4.65 HD will go on sale in the United States beginning January, for the retail price of $299.99. It will also be released later in Asia and Latin America. BLU Products will be launching more products during the first six months of 2013.
