In an effort to find room in the highly competitive smartphone market, Chinese manufacturers went towards the rugged segment where big manufacturers have little to none presence. And it’s awesome they did as incredible VFM rugged models have been made available to the market. Since the rugged market is now blooming, manufacturers are competing in the pricing with Blackview being among those offering the best budget phones. And they intend to continue towards that direction with their new BV5800 Pro that will hit the market next week as they claim it will be the cheapest rugged phone with wireless charging support. Well, that remains to be seen.
The Blackview BV5800 Pro features typical entry-level specs like the MTK6739 quad-core SoC accompanied by 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage. Also, there is a 5.5″ HD+ 18:9 display and dual camera on the back with 13MP/0.2MP sensors while an 8MP sensor is used for the selfie shots. Of course, the battery capacity is above average measuring 5580mAh with 5V/2A fast charging.
So, what would be the killer features in a typical -for the category- device? First of all, it comes with the latest Android version (8.1 Oreo) and all the goodies it brings. Also, there is Wireless Charging supported and that is not something we see every day in a budget device. The device will come in 3 colors: Black, Yellow, and Green. Below you can see its main specs.
