Blackview is well-known for focusing on rugged smartphones ever since its foundation in 2013. The company introduced the world’s first durable phone packed with 5G last month: the BL6000 Pro device powered by Dimensity 800.

As any reputable smartphone company, Blackview wants a lot more, and it recently revealed that it prepares the first rugged phone that will be equipped with the 6nm Dimensity 1200 chipset from MediaTek. We’re talking about a chipset that has one of the fastest octa-core CPUs ever made for smartphones, according to the manufacturer: the 3GHz Arm Cortex-A78. The news comes from, and we’re eagerly waiting to see it materialized.

Blackview BL800 is the future device in question, and as it was expected, it will match the standards in 2021 when it comes to smartphones by packing 5G connectivity. Blackview’s upcoming phone will also have 12GB of RAM, which is more than enough for a portable gadget. But we’ve not mentioned the best part yet, as Blackview reveals that the BL8000 model will changeat a fundamental level the way we all use rugged phones. The gadget will also offer multi-touch boost touchscreen responsiveness and reliable connectivity.

There’s no exact release date for the BL8000 model, and Blackview only said that it’s coming very soon. Therefore, we should keep an eye on the latest news about smartphones, and OpticFlux will do its best to keep you informed.

We can also expect to use Blackview BL8000 while on ski/snowboard slopes or under construction sites, as rugged phones are suitable for such environments. By definition, rugged smartphones are built with thick housing that surrounds them to offer protection against damage from shocks, water, dusk, and vibration.
