Quattro 4.5 HD

BLU’s flagship model comes with 16GB of internal memory and 1GB of RAM. Available unlocked, Quattro 4.5 HD has been priced at $349.99.
Quattro 5.7 HD
This is BLU’s ‘phablet’ product, featuring a 5.7 inch display with a resolution of 1280 x 720 HD. BLU has not mentioned the pixel density on this one and considering the larger display compared to the 4.5 HD model this model has a relatively lower quality display.

All models will run on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, with an upgrade to Jelly Bean planned, though it does not specify when. All three models will offer unlocked HSPA+ 3G.
