Blackview, a pioneer in the rugged smartphone industry, recently launched a new flagship model, the Blackview BL8000. This new device appears to be another durable (outdoor) phone of this Chinese brand, but despite its armor and shock-resistant body, it tries to look as “normal” as possible.
It brings two displays, 5G connectivity, a decent amount of memory, and a primary 50MP camera. The novelty is already being sold on Aliexpress, where you can buy it for a special price of $229.99, with a 50% discount.
Main Features of Blackview BL8000
The main 120Hz IPS display with a diagonal of 6.8 inches and Full HD+ resolution is covered by durable Corning Gorilla Glass 5. On the back, there is a second screen with a diameter of 1.3 inches (240×240 pixels, 60 Hz), that allows quick access to functions such as the clock, step counter, music playback, and more.
Internal performance is provided by the MediaTek Dimensity 7050 chipset with eight cores and 5G connectivity, supported by 12GB of RAM and 512GB of internal storage. The Blackview BL8000 is equipped with three cameras – the main 50MP Samsung ISOCELL GN5 sensor, an 8MP wide-angle camera, and a 2MP camera for macro. The front selfie camera has a resolution of 16MP.
This Blackview again meets the highest resistance standards that we can meet with phones, i.e. MIL-STD-810H certification and IP68/IP69K degree of protection, which guarantees high resistance to water, dust, and falls. The phone has a battery with a capacity of 8800mAh and supports fast charging with a power of 33W.
Of course, the large battery and robust construction have an impact on the physical size and weight. The phone measures 17 mm at the waist and weighs 385 grams. The fingerprint reader is located in the side button, there is NFC and even an FM radio.
Blackview BL8000 runs on the DokeOS 4.0 operating system based on Android 13, which offers a user experience centered on efficiency, privacy, and customization. Additionally, it also includes NFC, face unlock, a useful toolkit, and a 4-in-1 navigation system with dual-frequency positioning.
