Over the past couple of years, there’s been a sharp spike in the popularity of smartphones with high resistance to mechanical damage, which work in extreme circumstances including high temperatures, pressure oscillations, and underwater immersion. On November 17, Chinese company Blackview, which specializes in fulfilling users’ most complicated requests and manufacturing highly durable devices each year, finally announced the launch of a new phone that might fulfill all these requirements — Blackview BL6000 Pro with 5G support. You can already pre-order this device on IndieGoGo.
The latest development from Blackview has already raised more than 16 million rubles, 1672% more than the manufacturer’s original financial target. This level of attention towards the smartphone is primarily due to the high level of protection and support for 5G. These features combined in one smartphone are a novelty for the market.
The manufacturer confirms that the Blackview BL6000 Pro phone comes with IP68, IP69K standard certificates and complies with US military standard MIL-STD-810G. Unlike competitors, this model has a high level of water resistance and durability, which is achieved with the latest Nano Molding technology. The technology uses a metal-plastic alloy, which makes the body of the phone appear to be made of metal, but it is also protected from water, scratches, and heavy damage: the smartphone is equipped to withstand a fall from up to 1.5 meters and continue working without any issues. Each released smartphone has undergone over 100 test trials with impact testing, high and low temperatures, water, and other situations that threaten to put a regular phone out of action.
Additionally, the smartphone stays active even at a temperature of -30 thanks to IceMode technology, which allows users to send texts, have phone calls, access the Internet and use their camera even under extremely low temperatures, while other phones start to freeze or even turn off.
The third feature of Blackview BL6000 Pro is access to high-speed Internet, which is no less important than the others. The smartphone supports the next-generation 5G network, so it would take you only 7 seconds to load a 120-minute high-quality film, instead of the 7 minutes required with 4G connection. However, those who are well acquainted with 5G technology will understand that using it leads to rapid battery drain – but the manufacturer has taken this fact into consideration, equipping Blackview BL6000 Pro with a voluminous top-tier Lishen battery with 5280 mAh capacity, and optimizing the software to increase battery life. Laboratory experiments show that this move has increased the energy efficiency by 30%.
We take pictures almost every day, which is why all manufacturers pay special attention to cameras – and Blackview is no exception. The new smartphone is equipped with a Sony® IMX582 48 MP triple back camera, and a Samsung® S5K3P9-SP 16 MP front camera. Additionally, users don’t need to seek out additional software for high-quality photo editing: the phone is equipped with software that features a wide array of functions. According to the manufacturer, these features will make photos taken with this smartphone no different from professional photos.
Additionally, the camera boasts the following features:
- Portrait Color — a special portrait mode that makes it possible to take studio-level images with high-quality background color correction.
- Smart HDR mode transmits photo texture even with strong light, focusing on details and making images come to life with clarity.
- Night mode makes it possible to take detailed high-quality photos even with poor lighting – for example, in a dark room, or in the dead of night.
- A special technology that guarantees water resistance makes it possible to take beautiful underwater photos with no risk for your phone.
- With the Blackview BL6000 Pro smartphone, you also don’t have to worry that some objects won’t fit into the field of vision: widescreen mode without loss of quality level or detail easily solves this problem.
- 4K video is now equipped with an HDR mode that makes it even easier to capture small details and convey fluid motions.
The camera can be used even in rainy weather, while 5G technology makes it possible to conduct live streaming with no delays or quality loss.
2300 x 1080 FHD+ resolution and In-cell technology convey details, fluidity, and color saturation when watching movies, launching games, or editing photos. The screen is also protected with Corning® Gorilla® Glass, which additionally improves its resistance to damage, falls, and scrapes.
The phone also offers high performance in the face of heavy tasks, such as games. While other smartphones overheat, Blackview BL6000 Pro easily manages the high load with liquid cooling technology. Cooling gel, three-layer lead coating and copper tubes effectively regulate the temperature of the device and improve the operation of internal processes.
The smartphone is equipped with the Android 10 operating system: a quick, effective, and functional OS with an intuitive navigation, night mode, file sorting features, and a convenient icon design.
Although several other 5G smartphones are already available on the market, Blackview is the first manufacturer to offer a highly durable phone while maintaining all the advantages of a 5G connection. It’s a phone you can take anywhere: for posting Instagram photos, sharing high-quality videos with your friends, streaming while surfing, mountain climbing, or in any other extreme situations which would put a regular phone at risk of getting damaged or turned off.
