Blackview made the surprise this year by announcing a mid-range flagship device with the Blackview R7 being powered by the Helio P10 MT6755 octa-core chip that is used by a number of mid-range flagships in the market. The 5.5-inch 1080p FHD display with Corning’s Gorilla Glass 3 and 2.5D arc screen has super thin bezels at 1.6mm that makes the display almost bezel-less. The 4GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage further expandable up to 128GB via MicroSD are a pleasant surprise as those specs come from a higher priced category.
But the most advanced feature of the device is 360° Touch type Fingerprint sensor on the back panel that is super fast and identifies the fingerprint by a gentle press on it. It also can be used to take selfies by clicking on it, which solved the inconvenience part of using a big screen smartphone when taking selfies.
