Photo Announcement. Blackview BV7100 is a middle-class armored smartphone with a very capacious battery and an ancient camera

Blackview already announced earlier this year a couple of curious and rather powerful armored smartphones. Now the time has come for a simpler armored car. But with much more battery. Getting to know Blackview BV7100. (True, there hasn’t been a formal announcement yet, so it cannot be ruled out that some characteristics will suddenly change).

Protection. Traditionally listed are IP68, IP69K and MIL-STD-810H. The exact set of military tests passed is not listed, but vibrations, drops, accelerations, humidity, extreme temperatures are mentioned��. Separately, it is hinted that it is quite possible to take pictures under water with a smartphone.

The killer feature of a smartphone is the battery. Its capacity is 13000 mAh. Those. it is about three times more capacious than the average modern smartphones. Of course, for the capacity of the battery (complete with protection) I had to pay by weight. Almost half a kilo - 460 grams. But still a spoonful of honey - there is fast charging - 33 W.

The iron filling is modest, although it's still impossible to say that it's a nightmare. Chipset MediaTek Helio G85, so AnTuTu is waiting for two hundred thousand �Hallow. Memory is good too. 6 GB RAM and 128 GB storage. Memory cards are supported, but the tray is hybrid.

The screen is simple and clear. IPS-matrix with a diagonal of 6.58 "(104 cm²). High resolution, 1080x2408 (401 ppi). No increased refresh rate.

Blackview marketers have dedicated a lot of warm words to the cameras of the device. Although the kit is very simple. Front camera resolution 8 MP. Plus rear trio 12+8+2 MP. Main camera sensor - Sony IMX362 2016 (!) Year of release. Where did they even dig up such antiquity? The wide-angle camera (8 MP) is also trained �Take macro shots.

Other. The fingerprint scanner is located on the side. NFC module is available. Wi-Fi dual band. What type of USB is not specified. But, I hope, still Type-C. Whether there is a standard audio output is also unclear.

The Blackview BV7100 page has already appeared on AliExpress. And now the price is $299.99 (₽18800). Whether it is final or at the time of the start of sales it will be corrected for the better, I find it difficult to say.
