Blackview are pretty good when it comes to dishing out to the public budget-friendly smartphones with neat specification and designs as we saw then do with their Blackview A5 which presently costs $39.99 and their Blackview BV2000S 3G which has an all-around body and made it to our top 10 Chinese smartphones of 2016.
However, this OEM seeks to move forward as they have recently announced their new and rugged smartphone with the Blackview BV6000 moniker which should be the successor to the Blackview BV5000 handset which was graced with powerful innings alongside nifty implementations.
The same IP68 water proofing certificate we believe should be featured in the upcoming Galaxy Note 6 from the Korean Giant, Samsung.
It is believed to be the main selling point of this rugged device as the IP68 logo can be seen on lower front panel of the device.
Apart from being certified water and dust proof, the terminal has an HD screen on a 4.7-inch panel with a 720P resolution under the protection of a 3rd generation Gorilla glass. Powering the handset is an octa-core processor from MediaTek, the MT6755 clocked at 2GHz which should be accompanied by 3GB RAM and an expandable internal memory of 32GB.
With a metal frame giving it a firm build and better grip, we see it also running Android Marshmallow out the box. On the back panel, there is a 13MP imaging sensor which is accompanied upfront by a selfie shooter of 5 mega-pixel and with abilities to capture up to wide angle selfies of up to 85o.
However, to crown up its ruggedness, there is a 4500mAh battery pack which comes along with a USB type-C charging port that is equipped with support for fast charge and a 5V2A adapter.
Completing the device are other niche additions and sensor supports some of which include, dual-sim, 4G configuration, compass, SOS button, pressure sensor, gyroscope, NFC and GPS as well.
Nonetheless, this device is necessarily one of those entry-levels we have seen in the past and you should expect a price tag of somewhere around $150 to $200.
