Blackview Omega Pro, octacore, 64bit 5-incher coming soon for less than $100


blackview omega pro

Blackview are working on an updated version of the original Omega called, unsurprisingly, the Blackview Omega Pro.

When we test the original Blackview Omega we were pretty impressed by the dual glass and alloy iPhone like body, but less impressed with the hardware and pricing. You see the original Omega launched earlier in the year and with no LTE or 64bit chip it struggled to compete.

For the Blackview Omega Pro those issues have been deleted with the use of a 1.5Ghz Mediatek MT6753 chipset, which offers 64bit architecture for Android 5.1 to run on along with FDD-LTE for 1800/2600 and 800 Mhz networks.

The familiar ally and glass body also receives a boost in the RAM department to 3GB, and there is now room for a 128GB SD card should the built-in 16GB memory not be enough.

Blackview used a Samsung sensor on the original Omega, the specs for the Omega Pro don’t mention who makes this main camera only that its a 13 mega-pixel model while the front is a 2 mega-pixel snapper. Dual SIM card trays make and a 5-inch 1280 x 720 display from LG make up the rest of the kit.

To kick of the sales of the Blackview Omega Pro, the retail price will be a genuinely low $99.99! Not a bad mix of kit and design for a sub $100 price tag.

    Unfortunately, there is no fingerprint identification,I think I will choose ulefone Be Touch 2 or elephone P7000.Price is not the most important factor,Because a cell phone to use a very long time.

    hey, guys, why not Alife P1 Pro if you’d like a fingerprint scanner smartphone? it is said it’s a REAL lollipop one, can’t u see the pic of a REAL Alife P1 Pro I posted here? the last and most important thing is it’s a REAL affordable smartphone! isn’t it?! if you’re lucky enough, just rush to the 99.99$ flash sale on their web, and if you’re lucky more than enough, maybe you can get the stylish phone for freeeeeeeeeee…why? cuz it’s said there’s a lottery ticket in each package. Promise to keep the secrect, okay? You all, hush…

    I opened the link today, saw the countdown and… nothing else. How could I order one, what am I missing? Maybe someone can exlpain for the next round?

      Maybe there is a countdown because it is not out yet…? xD that could also explain why you can’t order it.

    I hope you’ll get a sample for review soon. It looks like an extremely good deal. Most phones with these specifications are more close to $200.

    That is a great deal, it will really spice up the 99-120$ market.

      it will be $99 next wednesday morning at 8am —9am GMT. See stores list on Blackview website.

        Yeah but I’m not sure you’ll really be able to get it at that price … I’d say $150 including shipping is a more realistic price.

          The first week this ran I checked one store listed and they still had 990 ish devices left at the end of the hour. Most of those probably then went 2nd week. This wasn’t publicised very well, so everyone’s missed the boat.

        I asked in store and they said they got 5pcs for this event ^^

        • Steve B

          First week, one store had 1000 and easily available, We’re into third week now though.

          • RoS
            August 8, 2015

            I don’t see any info about 1000pc per store (it’s rather 1000 per all stores).
            I asked at holabuyer aliexpress and they told me they got 5pc for each week.
            So totaly 3000pc for 100$ not much in my opinion.
            How do you know they were easily available ? Did you order one for 99,99$ ?

              August 8, 2015

              No I didn’t because I don’t need one, but it was there to buy with a buy button at 99$ with remaining offer stock shown at 990 something. This was the first week of the offer at 8am GMT when nobody seems to have been aware the phone even existed. Sorry you missed it, but it was there. This article is very late on the subject.

    Resellers are listing it around $150.

  11. Marius Cirsta
    August 7, 2015

    Yeah , $100 my ass… if you look at the online stores they all have it for $150 for international buyers … Now I do understand that they need to make some money too but this is just another $150 phone as far as I’m concerned.

    Is this SoC any good? Everything else seems great!

    • balcobomber25
      August 7, 2015

      It depends what you use it for. For everyday use it is good, for gaming or anything processor intensive you should stay away. It is a budget SoC meant more for efficiency than power.
