The Blackview BV8000 Pro is currently the world’s most powerful rugged smartphone on the market. It’s IP68 water and dust proof certified, meaning it can survive under water for more than 30 minutes, it’s also shockproof, scratch-resistant and can survive really low and high temperatures.
Blackview have just posted a video where they show off BV8000 Pro’s durability against fire and water, let’s check it out.
As you can see, the phone appears to survive the fire test which goes on for about 7 seconds, then they drop a bucket of water on the phone to turn it off. It was kind of obvious water wasn’t going to harm the phone as it is IP68, but I guess they had to turn off the fire in some way anyway.
As previously mentioned the Blackview BV8000 Pro is the most powerful rugged phone around, so what are the specs? Well, you’ll be surprised to find out the BV8000 Pro comes with the powerful but efficient MediaTek MT6757 Helio P25 CPU clocked at 2.3 GHz, a whopping 6GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage.
The handset sports a 5-inch display with Full HD resolution and it’s coated in Corning Gorilla Glass 3 for superior durability.
The Blackview BV8000 Pro also packs a good 16MP Samsung S5K3P3 rear camera with PDAF and an 8.0MP Samsung 4H8 selfie shooter. The fingerprint scanner is placed on the back, meanwhile beneath it we find a 4180mAh battery which supports 9V2A fast charging.
The rugged handset comes with an USB Type-C port, NFC, OTG, GPS/Glonass and runs Android 7.0 out of the box.
Blackview also made another video which shows what comes in the box and a quick physical and software tour of the phone.
