Blackview A8 comes at a pretty low price in this era of ultra expensive smartphones. Although its decently priced, it does not mean that it lags behind in configuration in comparison to smartphones with high price tags. The configuration is pretty decent and the Blackview A8 was first spotted in MWC in Barcelona this year.
Blackview A8 pretty much like every affordable smartphone features a 5 inch HD display. The phone does not look cheap at all despite the low price. It is manufactured using CNC metal frame. You will get a silver colored metal chassis along with a metallic bezel running around its edges. The rounded corners add to the beauty of this smartphone. It sports premium looks and amazing build quality like other highly priced smartphones. On the back, there is a loudspeaker grill at the bottom of the lower half of this smartphone.
In terms of hardware, it packs a quad-core MediaTek MT6580 chipset coupled with 1GB of RAM. You will get 8GB of internal storage on this smartphone which is quite sufficient looking at the price tag of $44 that it comes with. The marquee feature of this smartphone is that the 8MP front facing camera comes with an inbuilt flash for capturing amazing selfies even in low lighting conditions. The rear shooter is also 8MP making use of Sony IMX149 lens.
If you want to purchase this smartphone, the phone is available at $49.99 from here.
