Miami-based mobile brand Blu is taking its first steps into the UK with the 5.5-inch Vivo 6.

Blu Phones

We've seen Blu phones before in the States, with the cheap but not-that-cheerful Blu R1 HD. But with the launch of the new Vivo 6, the company is taking its first steps into the UK.

The 5.5-inch Android phone has a full HD resolution, an octa-core processor, 4GB of RAM and a 13-megapixel camera. Couple that with a decent-looking metal body and you've got quite a lot of phone for its reasonable £240 asking price.

The phone is making its debut on Black Friday however, so for one day only you'll be able to grab the phone on Amazon for only £185, saving you £55 off its RRP. After today it'll go back up to its usual price, where it'll be competing with the Motorola Moto G4 -- one of the best budget handsets around.

How Blue fares in the UK with the Vivo 6 remains to be seen.
