Announcement. Blackview BV6900 - a good smartphone-armored car on a bad chipset

Not that the MediaTek Helio P25 chipset is herevery bad. For its time - very good and fast. His time has simply passed. But in 2017, even Samsung itself on this chip pile a couple of devices! Eh. But for almost the summer of 2020, eight Cortex-A53 cores and only about one hundred thousand points in AnTuTu are modest, the level of a very simple budget employee.

As you already understood, the freshly announced Blackview BV6900 is made on the Helio P25 chip. But with everything else, he is fine, full of mincemeat. Budget, of course, stuffing. But complete.

To begin with, the Blackview BV6900 is a classic rugged smartphone from the armored car family. Heavy (284 g) and thick (15 mm).

Declared protection against water and dust in class IP68. It is alleged that the smartphone can be immersed in water for one and a half meters for thirty minutes. And on a pair of pictures, even for beauty, they drew a correspondence to the IP69K class.

Compliance with “militaristic” is also declared.MIL-STD-810G standard. In the teaser video, the smartphone is dropped from a meter and a half and it, of course, does not crash. However, the MIL-STD-810G test list, according to which the smartphone was tested, as usual, is not.

With memory, everything is fine. 4 GB of RAM, 64 GB of flash memory. Micro-SD memory cards are supported, but judging by the official pictures, the card slot is hybrid, you will have to sacrifice a second SIM card.

Excellent capacious battery, 5580 mAh. There is both fast (18 W) and wireless (10 W) charging. Did I say that the stuffing will be complete?

There are a lot of cameras, but you can hardly expect picturestoo high quality. Front camera 16 MP. There are already four pieces behind the modules, 16 + 8 + 0.3 + 0.3 MP. Main camera, wide-angle camera. And a pair of cameras is purely for creating extras, because a quad camera - it sounds proudly.

We continue about the full stuffing. There is an NFC module and a fingerprint scanner. There is a USB Type-C. A gyroscope is promised (I hope this is real, not software). Dual band Wi-Fi. All necessary LTE frequencies. And even GLONASS.

Android is not the latest, only ninth. I suspect this has something to do with the ancient processor. But perhaps this can be forgiven.

About the main thing, about money. The smartphone has already appeared in pre-sale on the Blackview website. The price is modest, all HLFexpandSquareBrackets Cant find CurrencyCode. We are waiting from day to day on Aliexpress and other Chinese stores.
