Known for delivering robust and rugged handsets, Blackview has confirmed the launch of yet another device for its line of military-certified handsets: the Blackview BV9600.
Relative to the BV9600 Pro, it has almost the same visual identity, being different in specific in embedded hardware, as we will see ahead.
The first point that we can consider as altered when compared is that in this new smartphone, Blackview chose to bet on the MediaTek Helio P70 (instead of the P60), while reducing RAM (from 6GB to 4GB) and storage (from 128GB to 64GB ) available. In addition, the microSD support was also changed, limiting to 128GB against 256GB of the edition identified as “Pro”.
In cameras, we have the same main sensors (ie 8MP on the front and 16MP on the rear), the only point being effectively different in this respect the change of the secondary sensor, which stops offering 8MP and starts delivering 0.3MP.
