A new addition to the BV9900 family. The Blackview BV9900 Pro with its thermal imager and the Blackview BV9900 with its wide-angle camera are complemented by the Blackview BV9900E. At its core, the newcomer is a slightly simplified version of the Blackview BV9900.
- Blackview BV9900 Pro - rugged smartphone with thermal camera
- Protected Blackview BV9900: flagship features and increased frost resistance
The official premiere should take place on 21September. Apparently, on this day we will find out the price. Because everything else (well, or almost everything) about the smartphone is already known. In fact, even some price is known. Blackview BV9900E is already on Aliexpress. $ 399.99 (₽31100) is all fun. The Blackview BV9900 in the same store costs $ 499.99 (₽38,900), so the price looks plausible.
Protection. One of the main features of the smartphone is the ability to work at temperatures down to -30C, albeit with a curious caveat. Like, basic functions will be available.
Traditionally declared IP68, IP69K (rhetoricalquestion - why), MIL-STD-810G (as usual, without specifying the passed tests). You can expect that being underwater will not hurt your smartphone too much. But in the survival of the screen after falling from a height of one and a half meters on stones, sorry, I still don’t believe.
CPU. MediaTek Helio P90. Quite good and once even flagship (by the standards of MediaTek). But a bit old, 2018 release. Just over two hundred thousand points in AnTuTu. In modern times, very modest.
Memory is fine. 6 GB of RAM, 128 GB of constant (Blackview BV9900 has 8 + 256 GB). There is support for memory cards, but the tray is combined with the tray for the second SIM-card.
The screen is not too big, 5.84 ″. But the resolution is high - 1080 × 2280 (432 ppi).
Medium battery, 4380 mAh. The BV9900 has both fast (18W) and wireless charging (10W). What the BV9900E has is not very clear. Wireless charging is mentioned, but without specifying its speed. Not a word has been said about fast charging. Perhaps they took a bite to save money.
The set of cameras is pretty standard. Front camera 16 MP, rear quartet 48 + 16 + 2 + 0.3 MP (main camera, wide-angle, macro, depth sensor). The BV9900 has a similar set of cameras, only the depth sensor is already 5 MP, and not the symbolic 0.3 MP like here.
Of the pleasant things, we can note the presence of an NFC module and a barometer.
