Announcement. Blackview BV7200 - an armored smartphone with obscure indicators

Blackview has quietly unveiled its next armored smartphone, the Blackview BV7200.

Everything is fairly standard except forlocated on the back of the “indicator” (“Indicator Light”). According to the official description, it is designed to be able to find out about missed calls and messages without turning on the screen.

Judging by the official pictures, the indicator canlight green, blue or red. Instead of burning, I wonder if he can? And the pictures are weird. Droplets, blot and ... a falling phone? OK. Some kind of overview will appear - we will find out what it all means.

Protection.Traditionally listed are IP68, IP69K and MIL-STD-810H. If you believe the pictures, the smartphone was tested for vibrations, falls, accelerations, humidity, extreme temperatures ... Separately, it is mentioned that it is quite possible to take pictures underwater with a smartphone - there is even a special photo mode. It's called "Underwater Mode".

The iron filling is modest, but not a nightmare.MediaTek Helio G85 chipset, so we are waiting for two hundred thousand points in AnTuTu. Memory is good too. 6 GB RAM and 128 GB storage. Memory cards, again, are supported.

The screen is small, only 6.1″ (91 cm²). The resolution is low - only 720 × 1560, but for such a diagonal it will give 282 dpi, which is quite good. The screen is sensitive, you can work with gloves.

The battery is standard, 5180 mAh. Charging is slightly accelerated - 18 watts.

The set of cameras is simple. Front camera with a resolution of 8 MP.There are two rear cameras, 50 + 8 MP - main and wide-angle. The sensor at the main camera, of course, is the most budgetary of the "fifty dollars" - Samsung ISOCELL JN1.

There is an NFC module, a side fingerprint scanner, a gyroscope, Type-C and dual-band Wi-Fi. There is no standard audio output.

Blackview BV7200 has already appeared on AliExpress. The current price is $249.99 (₽17400). Whether there will be something like a starting sale is not clear.
