Blackview R7 pricing confirmed


We have just received a confirmation concerning definitive pricing of the Blackview R7 snf it fits like a glove into the clear cut lineup of this phone maker.

Blackview R7

Blackview R7 is a 5.5-inch smartphone with FHD resolution, 2.5D arc display covered with Gorilla Glass 3 and full metal body. Inside we can find Helio P10 (with GPU Mali-T860), 4 GB RAM, 32 GB storage expandable with microSD up to 128 GB, 13 Mpix main camera (Samsung 3M2) and 8 Mpix front cam (OV5648), rear fingerprint reader, 3500 mAh battery and Android 6.0 Marshmallow.

For better idea about you can check today’s official video, which we of course offer just below this paragraph.

And the price ? Pretty compelling due to the revealed specs, phone should be available for 159.99$.

Those looking for something way more budget friendly though can always check the same brand low-level segment phone Blackview A8 with MT6580A, 1 GB RAM, 8 GB storage, 5-inch HD display and 2000 mAh battery for only 49.99$.

    How is blackview in terms of build quality, software update support, camera app quality and overall satisfaction? Can anyone provide some real life feedback input?

        Better or worse than elephone?

          Should be much better than Elephone.

          Been using Blackview product before (i bought direct from blackview as last time they got promotion 50% discount, real one not the fake promotion from those online reseller). If i can remember correctly still using MTK6589T or something.

          The only downside is they were not durable. Especially their physical buttons and batteries very easy to spoil.

          And their original Flip cover was a disaster, can only last for a couple weeks only,

          I wish China vendor can improve their built quality. At least minimum can last for 2 years.

            From your description it is hard to see where it is much better than Elephone which has suffered in the recent past from the same durability and reliability problems.

            But I wouldn’t paint all Chinese phones with the same brush.

        Theyve gotten a whole lot better since Breeze.

          Of course, but in support works the same people 🙁

    Wow, that seems promising.
    I’ll keep an eye on it for sure

    Front camera is an interpolated 5mpx sensor, which is not bad by itself, but kind of makes me doubt about the final quality of the phone… Like: if they’re being purposefully cloudy about the sensor, are they hiding something else?! It’s this kind of behavior that makes me doubt about companies…

    This article is a bit confusing. On the first picture there is no fingerprint reader. Later the article mentions Samsung back and OV front camera, however in the video they mention Sony IMX 149.
    This would be fine but I am afraid the final product will be just as confusing as the article.

    Sick price. Finally P10 phones are starting to roll in from most brands.

    Mmmm,they should get the release really soon and be at point with it, otherwise this phone wont be relevant and will lose the change to compete with the other brands , just what happened last year with the omega pro super late release

    Could be at 179$ with resellers if it`s released in the beginning of June when lots more P10 devices will be out, although at that price expect some corners to be cut.
