In the camera segment, there is a rear facing 16MP camera with advanced technologies, including f/1.8 aperture, 1/3 inch sensor with 6P lens, real-time HDR, as well as phase detection autofocus with laser focus. The front 8MP Selfie camera is equipped with Face Beautification Software.
The fingerprint sensor on the BLU Pure XR is embedded into the Home button and for the best audio experience; it features DTS Surround Sound Technology.
