As of August ’18, the Blackview BV6000 that was introduced back in 2016 has sold more than 10 million units worldwide, making it probably the best-selling rugged smartphone. So, it is time for its successor to get the baton as the Blackview BV6800 Pro presale is about to kick off. From September 10th to October 1st, you can pre-order yours for a price starting at just $189.99 and you will get a $40 worth of gifts (wireless charger and tempered glass). This price will increase $3 daily to peak at the end of the activity.
Of course, the BV6800 Pro sports all safety features a modern rugged device should like IP68 certification, IP69K, and MIL-STD-810G Military standard certification so you can use it under-water up to 6 feet for 2 hours, and drop it from 3 meters high without any consequences. Also, it is anti-corrosive and can operate under extreme temperatures.
What’s more, the hardware and software are upgraded to meet today’s standards, so it features an 8MP front camera as well as a dual Sony IMX298 16MP rear camera offering a wide range of shooting modes, bringing DSLR shooting experience a bit closer to reality. Also, you can shoot underwater for hours. The display is a 5.7″ FHD 18:9 one to offer more comfortable grip thanks to the narrower body and an immersive visual experience.
On the inside lies an octa-core SoC accompanied by 4GB/64GB memory combo and a 6580mAh ultra-fast charging battery (24W low-temperature fast charging). More features include NFC with Google Pay support, GPS/GLONASS, and runs on Android 8.1 Oreo.
Right now, the number of pre-orders exceeds 300,000 units and is globally available for pre-order. More information on its performance and features will follow in later news. You can check it out here.
