Blackview recently released a second version of the BV6000, the Blackview BV6000s. The new device is a bit underpowered compared to its predecessor, but it has enough power to support everything you throw at it. And not only that, it is more power-efficient as well.
More power-efficient means more hours of daily usage available but it remains as rugged and tough as the BV6000. Other than that, the company uploaded a video on YouTube with the two devices showing their design and performance capabilities. In the video, you can also see that the new device seems to carry a better LCD panel, as black colors are darker than the BV6000.
The company also gave out to the press two photos of the device submerged in a fish tank. The BV6000s is IP68 certified and it can prevent water from entering the inside of the phone for up to 30′ in 1m depth of tap water (not sea water!). Apart from that, the only differences between those two, are the MT6735A 1.3Ghz Quad-core SoC instead of the MT6755 2.0Ghz Octa-core, 2GB of RAM instead of 3GB and 16GB internal storage instead of the 32GB. On the camera department, the Blackview BV6000s carries an 8MP sensor on the back and 2MP on the front.
For all the above, the company has organized a special sales event from August 9 until August 15 when the new BV6000s will cost only $129.99 instead of the original price of $159.99. The event will take place on Aliexpress and you can find it here. More detailed information on the product can also be found on the official product page here.
