Photo Announcement. Blackview A52 - a simple Android Go smartphone

Formally, the smartphone Blackview A52 has not yet been announced. However, it has already appeared in the manufacturer's branded store on AliExpress. And in all the details.

There is a suspicion that there may not be any special official announcements. For painfully, the smartphone is simple and weak. But first things first.

The chipset is called Unisoc SC9863A1. Perhaps this is some kind of light modification of the well-known ancient Unisoc SC9863A. Eight low power cores. With a little luck, AnTuTu will have a little over a hundred thousand points. If you're lucky with all your might, maybeand under 150 thousand.

Memory is low. 2 GB operational and 32 GB permanent. There is support for memory cards, but the tray is hybrid. You can't install full-fledged Android on this, so you'll have to be content with the Go Edition.

The screen is standard and unpretentious. Diagonal 6.5 "(102 cm²), resolution 720x1600 (270 ppi). Of course, there is no increased refresh rate.

But the battery is good, capacious - 5180 mAh. But no fast charging. Those. either 5 or 10 W.

Single cameras, 5 MP front and 13 MP rear. (There is a second rear peephole in the pictures, but, apparently, it is fake).

Su�I'm from the pictures, there is Type-C, which is good. But Wi-Fi is single-band. The fingerprint scanner is nowhere to be seen. The NFC module is mentioned in one place, but I suspect this is a typo and it is still not here.

Now for Blackview A52 on Ali listed price is $139.99 (₽9040). But I think it should go down a lot. For such characteristics, even $100 (₽6500) will probably be a bit much.
