At the Mobile World Congress 2018 Blackview has extended its outdoor series with the BV9500, BV6800 and BV5800 Pro. The special feature of all three smartphones is wireless charge. Blackview has also announced the first technical specifications.
Even if the model number BV9500 suggests that this smartphone is an improvement of the current outdoor flagship BV9000 Pro, it is not so. At least when we talk about performance. However, the Blackview BV9500 differs from the 9000 series in some respects. That’s the battery. A full 9180 mAh battery is built in and can also be charged wirelessly. The following technical data are known so far:
- 5.7-inch display with full HD+ (2160×1080 pixels) resolution
- MediaTek Helio P23 Octa-Core 2.0 GHz processor
- 4GB RAM and 64GB expandable memory
- 16MP+13MP Dual Camera
- IP68 certified
- Android 8.1 Oreo
The Blackview BV6800 can also be charged wirelessly with Wireless Charge. With a 6180 mAh battery and also NFC. The BV6800’s display and memory configuration are no different from the BV9500.
- 5.7-inch Full-HD+ (2160×1080 pixels) display Resolution
- MediaTek MT6750T Octa-Core Processor
- 4 GB RAM, 64 GB internal memory
- 16+8 Megapixel Dual Camera
- IP68 certified
- Android 8.0 Oreo
- Blackview BV5800 Pro
Last but not least the Blackview BV5800 Pro which is to be classified in the upper beginner class. But the BV5800 Pro also supports both Wireless Charge and NFC, which will certainly be one of the few in the price segment.
