BLU Products is an American mobile phone manufacturer founded in 2009 that offers affordable pre-paid devices. The company sent out software updates on two legacy smartphones making NextRadio the native FM tuner in the Vivo 5 and Vivo XL. Over the next few months, the Studio series phones — Dash, Energy, Diamond, and Neo — will be compatible with NextRadio. This will give millions of smartphone users the ability to use the NextRadio app.
NextRadio President Paul Brenner said, “The addition of BLU to our supported device list continues our ongoing commitment to the radio industry to get all smartphones in the marketplace to offer consumers the benefit of having access to NextRadio and the FM tuner in their phones. We are pleased that BLU chose to take it one step further and make NextRadio their native FM tuner.”
