Blackview BV7000 Pro
Processor and memory
The processor built into the Blackview BV7000 Pro is a MediaTek MTK6750T. In contrast to the MTK6755 (Helio P10), which is still in the Blackview BV6000 Was used, it is a minor downgrade. The MTK6750T also uses the ARM big.LITTLE architecture with 4 + 4 Cortex-A53 processor cores, but the cores clock with a maximum of 1.5 or 1.0 GHz. This difference in performance will only be slightly noticeable in everyday life. The MTK6755 will only achieve a higher score in Bechmark tests. The graphics performance is provided by a Mali T860 MP2 GPU. Games that are not too demanding can therefore be played smoothly.
The storage equipment can be seen with a 4GB RAM and a 64GB internal memory. If the internal memory is not enough for you, you can expand it using a microSD memory card.
Display and camera
The IPS type display has a diagonal of 5 inches and has a resolution of Full HD (1920 x 1080). With the point density of 440 PPI achieved in this way, the display is razor-sharp. As befits an outdoor or rugged phone, the display of the BV7000 Pro is protected by a branded display glass. The Corning Gorilla Glass 3 used has already impressed smartphones from other manufacturers with its high level of scratch resistance.
The main camera has a resolution of 13 megapixels and uses an f / 2.0 aperture. An auto focus and an LED flash are available. The manufacturer has not yet given any details about the image sensor used. However, it stands to reason that Blackview has not deviated from its predecessor and has installed the same image sensor. The front camera has a resolution of 8 megapixels. Here, too, there is no information about the image sensor.
The Blackview BV7000 Pro can be used without restrictions in the German 2G, 3G and 4G networks. All LTE bands common in this country are supported. A dual SIM function is available. In the WLAN, the smartphone understands itself with the WiFi standards 802.11a / b / g / n. Bluetooth is available with version 4.0. The sensory equipment is rather clear compared to other outdoor smartphones. In addition to the usual smartphone sensors, there is also an e-compass. A barometer is missing and the BV7000 Pro also does without NFC. You can navigate with your smartphone via GPS and GLONASS. Beidou or the European satellite system are not available.
The extremely thin 1.26 cm CNC milled metal housing is protected against dust and permanent immersion in accordance with protection class IP68. There is a fingerprint scanner on the back of the case, which promises unlocking times of less than 1/10 of a second. The battery capacity is 3.500 mAh. The smartphone is charged via a USB Type-C socket. USB OTG is supported.
Chunky outdoor smartphones were yesterday. Blackview shows the BV7000 Pro, an elegant rugged phone that looks damn thin with a thickness of just 1.26 cm. However, if you compare the BV6000's hardware with the BV7000 Pro's, it's a bit disappointing that Blackview has decided to downgrade and even omits some useful features like NFC or a barometer altogether. However, if you do not need these features, the Blackview BV7000 Pro offers an interesting combination of a conventional consumer smartphone and a genuine rugged phone.
