Chinese smartphone maker Bluboo claims that the company has used 3D printing technology to manufacture the curved back plate of their upcoming smartphone.
Bluboo Xtouch smartphone apparently comes with a 3.0D curved back. The back features a diamond cut finish similar to the Asus Zenfone 2 Deluxe. In the recent years 3D printing technology has really taken off, thanks to the hype surrounding it.

However nowadays it seems that even smaller companies like Bluboo are starting to use this new method of printing. The benefit of 3D printing include faster printing speeds and ability to manufacture products without the use of costly moulds.
The folks at Gizchina, a reputed Chinese technology website reports to have clarified with the Bluboo official regarding the authenticity of the claim.
The Bluboo Xtouch is priced at $149.99 (Rs 9,749) via resellers in China. In a strange publicity stunt Bluboo is offering a discount of $49 (Rs 3,185) for those who post a review of the device by 10th November, post buying at any of the reseller website.
