There are a ton of great affordable Android smartphones on the market today and at this point, just about every brand has at least one solid option under $400. One brand in particular that has made a name for itself in this sector is BLU, and this week the company is teasing its latest flagship device, the Pure XR.

As of right now BLU hasn’t released too many details on this new smartphone. All we know for now is that the price will land at $299, it will have 4GB of RAM, and that it will be a “premium device”, implying the use of higher quality materials such as metal or glass. The company has also confirmed that the Pure XR will make its official debut on August 29th, so we don’t have too long to wait for more details.

In the meantime, BLU is hosting a giveaway on its official Facebook page for three Pure XR smartphones. All you need to do to enter is hand over your email address and confirm that you are over 18 years of age.
