Blackview announced the A8 budget smartphone a couple of weeks back. In fact, the phone was showcased at MWC 2016 in Barcelona, Spain where we got to play around with the device for some time. We were kind of impressed with the device, mainly because of its design and the price at which it was going for sale. The Blackview A8 is priced at just $49.99, which makes it a very good deal for anyone looking for a super cheap smartphone.
All this time, we were unsure about the phone’s release date. However, the company has confirmed today that the Blackview A8 smartphone will release on April 8. The phone will be available for purchase via multiple retailers including Aliexpress, where it will be sold at the amazing price of $49.99.
To recap, the phone comes with the quad-core MT6580A processor clocked at 1.3GHz and 1GB of RAM and 8GB of expandable internal storage. There will be a 5-inch 720p display on board along with support for 3G, dual SIM dual standby and Android 5.1 Lollipop version. At the back, there will be a 8MP camera while up front, a 2MP shooter.
