Chinese company Blackview is not focusing only on the upcoming model BV6000, but also still trying to show some care for its BV5000 predecessor and preparing the Android 6.0 update for it. It should be coming via OTA on 9th May.
The update should be bringing better system responsiveness, better battery management and longevity, more user friendly UI, option to uninstall some of the bloatware apps even without root privileges and also new notification bar.
Let’s go through the Blackview BV5000 specs, because it’s available for sale and with the Android 6.0 update coming it could be one of the interesting choices for cheap outdoor phone with good price/performance ratio. It can be found for example in here for 112.99$.
Blackview BV5000 offers 5-inch display with HD resolution (1280×720 pixels), quad-core MT6735P processor clocked at 1 GHz, 2 GB RAM, 16 GB of expandable storage, 5000 mAh battery capacity, 8 MPix main camera, 2 MPix front camera and dual SIM support with 4G on bands 1/3/7/8/20.
