Blu Products is back with another cheap smartphone, the $99 Blu Studio Touch, and it's one of the rare smartphones to come with a fingerprint sensor with a price tag under $100. The rest of the specs are average for a low-end smartphone in 2016 (as you would expect):

  • MediaTek 64-bit 1GHz quad-core processor
  • Android 6.0 Marshmallow
  • 5-inch HD display
  • 8GB of Storage
  • 1GB of RAM
  • 8MP camera

For those of you who need a more powerful burner, there will be a 16GB + 2GB RAM version that will hit shelves in September for $109, according to Blu Products. The Blu Studio Touch is now available in black and gold on Amazon, although it looks like some third-party sellers have raised the price.
