Photo Announcement. Blackview Tab 13 - have you heard about SIMO Internet?

Blackview has announced its next unremarkable tablet called the Blackview Tab 13. Although no. He does have one funny thing though. True, for us it is completely useless.

Have you ever heard of SIMO? I have not heard until today. Good. Have you heard of Drimsim? I used to use them quite a lot. You buy their SIM-card - and you get inexpensive mobile Internet through it in roaming. A kind of universal SIM card for a traveler. Very comfortable. Was. I don't know if it's possible�, and now there is.

As far as I can tell, SIMO is about the same thing. You don't need to buy a SIM card. But then you need to buy a device with support for this very SIMO. Well, i.e. you buy a device in which such a SIM card is already built-in, as it were. And here Blackview Tab 13 has it.

Convenient? Of course. And, by the way, Russia is very covered by this very SIMO. Those. they can work through our mobile operators. So a citizen from a foreign country may well enjoy this same SIMO Internet in our country. The reverse, alas, is not true. For you and meThere is currently no way to register for this service. So for you and me, Blackview Tab 13 is just a tablet.

A few words about its characteristics.

Chipset MediaTek Helio G85, so we expect 200-250 thousand points in AnTuTu. Modestly. Curiously, Blackview Tab 13 is generally the first tablet in the world to use this chip. Previously, only smartphones were produced with it.

With memory, everything is fine, they did not become greedy. 6 GB RAM and 128 GB storage. Plus there is support for memory cards.

A lot of big words have been said about the screen. Like, protectionfrom harmful radiation and all that. But, in fact, we have a rather trivial ten-inch IPS-matrix (296 cm²) with a standard resolution of 1920x1200 (224 ppi) and no increased refresh rate.

The battery has a capacity of 7280 mAh. No fast charging.

The rear camera is suddenly double, 13 + 0.3 MP. But, of course, the auxiliary module here, rather, plays the role of a decorative element. The front camera is the most ordinary, eight-megapixel.

The tablet page has already appeared on AliExpress. And it will cost at the start of sales (August 22)Humanely, only $169.99 (₽11500). (This is the price for a tablet without a keyboard, of course).
