Blackview BV8800: Power-packed rugged smartphone that won't break the bank

Blackview, the company that’s leading the industry with its rugged and durable smartphones has unveiled its flagship for 2022 — the Blackview BV8800.

The device will see its premiere sake on January 10 (PT) and will also be available with an early bird offer that would make it an even more attractive deal than it already is.

If you’ve looked for rugged phones in the past, then you’ve probably come across other devices from Blackviews giant-battery rugged phone portfolio.

Not only do Blackview phones offer excellent durability, but the company also does not compromise on the performance of their devices too.


Therefore, these smartphones are perfect for those who work outdoors or long hours since they won’t have to worry about the phone picking up scratches and dings or the battery dying.

That said, the Blackview BV8800 has a lot up its sleeves that makes it stand out from its predecessors when it comes to optics, performance, and the display.

Speaking of which, here’s a statement from Blackview’s president — David Xu:

Specialized in rugged phone R&D and manufacturing for 8 years, we’ve put relentless effort into empowering outdoor enthusiasts and demanding-environment workers. Rugged is in our blood and innovation makes us grow. While rugged phones serve a niche market of people, we don’t settle for niche features. We strive to keep Blackview rugged phones up with what’s new in the mainstream phone industry and incorporate state-of-the-art features to make them so invincible yet modern. We want to build something that our users can so confidently use in demanding environments, and they’ll feel so proud as well to show their friends on daily occasions. Blackview BV8800 is our strong statement. It has whatever it takes to let our users be proud

Unlike most other rugged smartphones that compromise on the performance or the camera just to throw in a massive battery and a thick shell, the Blackview BV8800 embraces performance and durability along with most other bells and whistles that you’d find with any modern smartphone.

Here are the features that you’ll get with Blackview’s new BV8800:


The device packs a high-refresh-rate display that goes up to 90Hz for a fluid viewing experience compared to other rugged phones that come with 60Hz screens. It also sports a resolution of 2408 x 1080 pixels.

High-refresh rate screens make every interaction with your screen seem smoother whether it’s simply scrolling through your Twitter or Instagram timeline to browsing content on the web or playing games.


When it comes to performance, the Blackview BV8800 does not disappoint. It’s powered by the MediaTek G96 which has two high-performance ARM Cortex A76 cores clocked up to 2.05GHz in its octa-core CPU.

For the graphics, it’s paired with the Mali-G57 that offers respectable frame rates in just about every game that you could throw at it.

What this means is that you’ll be able to breeze through emails, phone calls, multimedia, and even games without the phone breaking a sweat.


It’s 2022, and of course, having an excellent camera on your smartphone should be a staple. This is where the Blackview BV8800 surprisingly excells compared to the competition.


The phone features an AI quad-camera system with the primary being the ISOCELL JN1 50MP sensor that helps with clicking great pictures, even in low-light situations where usuaully most phones fall apart.

The IR Night Vision camera lets you capture images even in pitch-black areas.

Battery and charging

Now we’ve come to one of the biggest reasons you should consider picking up the BV8800 — the battery.

Your average smartphone might sport a battery anywhere between 2500 mAh to 4500 mAh these days. However, the BV8800 isn’t your average smartphone and thus it packs a whopping 8380 mAh cell that can offer a mind-boggling 720 hours of standby time.

Further, it should easily last you a few days with average usage. And when you eventually need to top up the phone, you can do so in just 1.5 hours thanks to its 33W fast charging support.

User experience

The Blackview 8800 runs on the company’s new Doke OS 3.0 skin that’s based on Android 11. It features a huge overhaul over the previous skin — Doke OS 2.0.

Doke OS 3.0 brings with it intuitive gestures for navigation, smart app pre-loading for quicker access to apps, a close-to-stock user interface, and other useful tools.

The company’s new skin also offers better performance and fluidity than the previous iteration.


Most smartphones these days are glass sandwiched and, if dropped, could cost a fortune to repair. With the Blackview BV8800, dings and scratches are something that you wouldn’t have to bother about.

Not only is the phone built with high-quality and durable materials, but it’s also MIL-STD-810H tested which makes it one of the toughest smartphones you can pocket today.

Unlike other expensive flagships for which you need to shell out more money to purchase a case, the BV8800 is built like a tank itself.

It’s even IP68 and IP69K certified so you can jump in a pool without worrying about water damage.


As highlighted in the beginning, the Blackview BV8800 will go on sale on January 10 (PT) with an early bird price of just $199.99, which is a hundred bucks off from the standard price.
