New Blackview model A8 Max is just a slightly upgraded older A8, but the upgrade is quite significant mainly with the bigger 5,5-inch display (although with the same HD resolution) and better MT6737 processor. That means 4G support and if you factor in the 2 GB RAM and expandable 16 GB of storage you have quite a usable budget phone and not the bare skeleton as the predecessor.
Battery capacity also gets bumped to 3000 mAh and the phone even gets a new metal frame. The aforementioned 4G support should be on bands 1/3/7/8/20 and the A8 Max will be also a dual SIM model As the OS quite the standard these days – Android 6.0 Marshmallow.
Blackview A8 Max presales will start next week on August 8th and up until the the August 20th you can get it for special price of $74.99 (down from retail $89.99). The phone will be available in Pearl White, Champagne Gold and Violet black and the deliveries are promised to be sent out on August 26th. You can order for example here.
