Photo Announcement. Blackview Oscal C80 - not quite a budget employee

Blackview created a separate brand last year and named it Oscal. Under this brand, several nice, but frankly low-powered smartphones and one no less low-powered tablet were released. But then something went a little wrong. In the good sense of the word.

Formal Blackview Oscal C80 has not yet been announced. In fact, it has already appeared in one of the Blackview branded stores on AliExpress. Almost all information is there. You can get acquainted.

Oddly enough, Blackview Oscal C80 is most similar to Nokia G21. Not in appearance - she is something like� times different. But in terms of characteristics. Same chipset, close screens, batteries, cameras.

The weak link is the chipset. It's called Unisoc T606. According to Blackview, AnTuTu should have 226330 points. Although I have not yet seen such high results for this chip. Usually it turns out a little less than two hundred thousand. Not a nightmare, a nightmare, but even the modern middle class is no longer drawn.

But with memory, everything is surprisingly good. As many as 8 GB of operational and 128 GB of permanent. Plus, there is support for memory cards, but the tray, however, is a hybrid one. (From 4+64 to 6+128 GB for Nokia G21).

Interior screen�sen slightly increased refresh rate - up to 90 Hz. But here the resolution is small. Only 720x1600, which at a diagonal of 6.5" (102 cm²) gives a modest 270 dpi.

The battery is good, 5180 mAh (5050 mAh for Nokia). There is a slightly accelerated charge - 18 W.

Cameras. The front has a resolution of 8 MP. The rear camera looks double, but there is no information about the second "eye". The main sensor is Samsung ISOCELL JN1 with a resolution of 50 MP. On the one hand, it is the weakest of the fifty-fifty sensors. On the other hand, the same Samsung is not at all shy about putting it in quite decent devices in the medium.His class.

(Nokia G21 has a triple rear camera - there is also a symbolic macro module and a depth sensor).

The Oscal C80 doesn't seem to have an NFC module - here Nokia is ahead. Side fingerprint scanner. There is Type-C. There is no information about Wi-Fi ranges. But, most likely, Wi-Fi 5 should also be present here.

About money. Now on AliExpress flaunting price is $219.99 (₽15100). In my opinion, it's a bit pricey. It would be nice to lower it a little by the official start of sales.
