Dec. 7, 2017 – BLU Products today announced the next step in its collaboration with global fabless semiconductor leader MediaTek on a series of smartphones powered by MediaTek’s US carrier-certified chipsets. Working together, MediaTek and BLU expect to drive growth across the open market landscape, as the new BLU S1 smartphone and subsequent launches powered by MediaTek will assure quality and performance on multiple carrier platforms. The BLU S1 is the first BLU device certified to work on the Sprint network.
“This most recent collaboration with MediaTek is an illustration of the shifting market dynamics at play within the mobile industry,” said Samuel Ohev-Zion, CEO of BLU Products. “Smartphone owners want premium experiences at more affordable prices and with the flexibility to choose the network that best meets their needs. MediaTek and BLU have shared goals when it comes to bringing value to market without compromising on quality. BLU’s S1 product is the natural next step in enabling more choices to Sprint customers, in addition to the subscribers of other U.S. carriers.”

Today, consumers demand premium features and flexibility at lower prices,” said Russ Mestechkin, Director of MediaTek Corporate Sales, U.S. and Latin America. “Because our chipsets are being certified by all major U.S. carriers, we can ensure that the features we bring to the retail mobile market will deliver a high-quality experience for consumers.”
