Rugged smartphones with features that drastically improve its resistance to damage have become quite popular in the past few years in spite of being a very niche product and Blackview’s upcoming BV5000 is one of them. The company recently released a couple of videos to show just how rugged the BV5000 is.
In the first video, the smartphone is dropped into a bucket of paint, left for 30 minutes, and cleaned up under running water with a large scrubber. After being cleaned up, the phone and its touchscreen still works. The second video shows the BV5000 frozen in a block of ice. It is then broken out of the block of ice and is used to make a call.
These videos show of the capability of the device to survive tough environments and rough treatment and the videos clearly show how durable the BV5000 is.
Aside from its rugged and durable exterior that is both shock and water proof, the BV5000 features a hefty 4750mAh battery, a quad-core processor, a 720p HD display, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage, an 8-megapixel rear camera, a 2-megapixel front-facing camera, 4G LTE connectivity, and Android 5.1 Lollipop.
The BV5000 will be available in pearl white and violet black when it is released although the company has yet to reveal and exact release date and pricing for the new device.
