AliExpress has always stood as an online marketplace that regularly provides us with great technology highlights. Now the store is already celebrating its twelfth birthday. This is a reason to celebrate, which AliExpress takes as an opportunity to ring in an extensive sale. The Blackview brand is also represented. Especially in the area of smartphones you can benefit from massive discounts of up to 50 percent. The sale starts today, March 28, 2022. We have compiled a few highlights from Blackview for you.
For many smartphone manufacturers, it’s often higher, further, faster. Although they provide their devices with the very latest processors, memory and display technologies, they quite often forget one important additional attribute: durability. This is anything but attractive, especially for people who like to use their smartphone during manual labor or who do not want to worry about the device’s condition during an outdoor weekend. This is where the Oscal S60 Pro comes into play. The chic outdoor smartphone is not only immune to water, dirt and drops. On top of that, it now comes with a night vision feature. This should not only help navigating through the wilderness or across the campsite in the dark. On top of that, recognizable photos can also be taken at night. A look at the features of the OSCAL S60 Pro quickly makes it clear that there is a lot of technology here for little money.
In addition to the 8-megapixel resolution night vision camera based on infrared technology, there is another 13-megapixel main camera here, as well as an 8-megapixel selfie camera. Since the OSCAL S60 Pro is waterproof anyway, Blackview decided to add an underwater mode to the cameras. The rest of the technology is also more than impressive. The heart of the device is the MediaTek Helio A25. The eight-core processor is supported by 4 GB of RAM. The smartphone comes with 32 GB of storage from the factory. However, this can be conveniently expanded up to 1 TB. Thanks to its 5580 mAh battery, the outdoor smartphone easily lasts the whole day. As part of the sale at AliExpress, you can now secure the resistant smartphone for $109.99 instead of $219.99.
Another smartphone that is perfect for outdoor use is the Blackview BV8800. Like the OSCAL S60 Pro, this one also has an integrated night vision device. However, the total package that you get here is much more extensive. This already becomes clear when you look at the camera module. Blackview gives the smartphone a triple camera on the back for outdoor use, consisting of a 50 MP Samsung® ISOCELL JN1, the 20 MP Sony® IMX376 IR night vision and the 8 MP 117° ultra-wide-angle camera. On top of that, you get a 16 MP Samsung® ISOCELL 3P9 front camera.
However, even those who don’t take photos regularly will find significant differences from the cheaper sister model. For example, the BV8800 has a 90 Hz fluid display, which is anything but typical for outdoor smartphones in particular. In terms of performance, Blackview relies on the MediaTek Helio G96, which is supported by 8 GB of RAM. The device comes with 128 GB of flash storage ex-works. However, the manufacturer’s gigantic battery is particularly astonishing. It has a capacity of 8380 mAh and can be recharged in a time-saving manner thanks to the 33-watt fast charging function. For the Blackview BV8800, AliExpress currently charges only $221.99 instead of an MSRP of $299.99.
While night vision cameras are often just gimmicks, thermal imaging is arguably the most effective way to see something despite the darkness. Not only does it help you when it’s dark out, but it can also be used in thick fog. The Blackview BV6600 Pro features this technology. Considering the low price, this is truly amazing. After all, thermal imaging technology is usually bound to high costs. However, even though the complex technology from the experts at FLIR provides a true thermal imaging experience, it can still be controlled in a foolproof manner. In this respect, it is particularly suitable for the everyday work of tradesmen or hobby home handymen.
For example, leaks on pipelines can be detected. Those who are not handy can at least shoot funny thermal images of themselves, their friends and their own pets. Another highlight is the device’s endurance. Blackview has installed a gigantic 8580 mAh battery. However, the processor and memory performance are no more than average. You will not be able to pull out any trees with the MediaTek P35 along with 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of storage, but it is sufficient for everyday use. This is more than understandable in view of the low price. You can currently get the BV6600 Pro for $228.85 instead of $423.79.
Not quite as Pro, but still compelling, is the Blackview BV6600. Here you get a robust smartphone that only focuses on the essentials. Consequently, it is best suited for purists who neither need night vision nor a thermal imaging camera, but simply want a resistant smartphone. The huge 8580 mAh battery, which is supposed to provide up to 430 hours of standby time, ensures endurance. Thus, even days-long camping trips without power should not be a problem.
The lack of camera bells and whistles allows Blackview to equip the BV6600 with solid hardware despite a very low price. The core is the MediaTek Helio A25, which offers eight cores. It is supported by 4 GB of RAM. A storage capacity of 64 GB is available for photos and other media. A fingerprint sensor, NFC, and a dual-cam system round off the attractive price-performance hit. Currently, you can secure the Blackview BV6600 at AliExpress for $139.99 instead of $249.99.
For many, smartphones with a classic outdoor design are simply too clumsy. Not only thick screen edges, but also clunky shapes ensure that. But Blackview can also do things differently. With its A series, the manufacturer also produces classic smartphones for mainstream users. On the one hand, there is the A95, which reminds of the iPhone 13 when looking at the back. However, a look at the front with a central teardrop notch makes it clear that we are looking at a different manufacturer. However, it is not only the elegant design and the pretty color selection that is good. The handy smartphone is also technically impressive.
On the one hand, there is the powerful Sony® IMX376 camera sensor with 20 MP. Furthermore, the MediaTek Helio P70 works under the hood of the chic smartphone – a guarantee for solid performance. Thanks to the 8 GB working memory, there should hardly be a challenge that the smartphone cannot handle. The integrated 128 GB storage can be expanded up to 1 TB. The attractive features are rounded off with a 6.528-inch HD+ display as well as a 4380 mAh battery with 18 watts of powerful fast charging. Currently, you can secure the Blackview A95 for a real firecracker price of $137.40 instead of $249.99.
The Blackview A100 also belongs to the chic A series. This stylish smartphone also wants to score with an elegant design, but also with an impressive camera performance. Thanks to the installed 12 MP Sony® IMX362 with dual-pixel autofocus technology and closed-loop VCM, especially quick snapshots with beautiful looks can be realized here. In times of social media, this is a very important feature. The Blackview A100 even pushes its camera prowess so far that it is considered the smartphone with the fastest focusing and shooting in the sub-$300 price segment. If you ever have a little more time to take a picture, you can also snap chic group photos thanks to the 8 MP ultra-wide-angle camera.
To ensure that the smartphone is up to the challenges, it is powered by a MediaTek Helio P70 octa-core processor along with 6 GB of RAM. Ex-factory, the smartphone with a 6.67-inch FHD+ display has a total of 128 GB of storage. The 4680 mAh battery is supposed to provide stamina. The A100 is recommended for those who find the A95’s display too small. You can also benefit from a considerable price reduction at AliExpress. Instead of $249.99, the A100 currently costs only $189.99 as part of the discount campaign.
The manufacturer proves that Blackview can by no means only manufacture smartphones with its Tab 11. Here you get a real tablet flagship, which is best suited for work, study, but also for leisure. The focus here is on the 10.36-inch display, which offers a 2K resolution. Especially in combination with the stereo speakers, the Blackview Tab 11 is perfect for streaming your favorite series. To ensure that the Tab 11 is also up to challenges, Blackview installs a mid-end Unisoc T618 chip with 8 GB RAM and 128 GB ROM here.
Thanks to its great energy efficiency, this combined with the 6580 mAh battery allows for great staying power. Not only the enduring battery, but also the support for external keyboards ensure that you get through the work or lecture day in the best possible way. If the 128 GB internal storage is not enough, you can expand it up to 1 TB. You can currently get the stylish tablet for $189.99 instead of $249.99 as part of AliExpress’ anniversary promotion.
