Some of the most commonly touted features on offer with smartphones in 2017 include the employment of a 'full screen display' and a dual rear camera setup. The Blackview S8 is a relatively new device and one which the company notes has already seen "extremely strong'' sales in spite of only having been available for a short period. One of the likely reasons this is proving to be a popular option is the Blackview S8 adopts both of these 2017 features. In fact, when it comes to the cameras, the Blackview S8 does not include three cameras like most dual rear camera-touting smartphones, it includes four.
For those new to this phone then the Blackview S8 is a smartphone that features a 5.7-inch display with a 1440 x 720 resolution. This is a resolution otherwise known as HD+ as the Blackview S8 also makes use of the now-popular 18:9 aspect ratio. Inside, the Blackview S8 comes loaded with 4GB RAM, 64GB storage and is powered by a MediaTek 6750T octa-core processor. As mentioned, this is a device that not only sports a dual camera setup on the back of the device, but also one on the front. With both camera combinations consisting of a 13-megapixel primary camera along with a 0.3-megapixel secondary camera. Additional features worth noting include a Quick Charge 2.0-supported 3,180 mAh battery, USB Type-C connectivity, a fingerprint sensor, and Android 7.0 (Nougat). Although Blackview has confirmed this smartphone will receive an update to Android 8.1 (Oreo) by the end of this year.
So it is clear that the Blackview S8 is designed to be a smartphone that competes when it comes to the specs and features. However, what is likely to be one of its key selling points (in spite of boasting multiple 2017 features) is how it is priced significantly lower than most other options. For example, the Blackview S8 can currently be ordered through GearBest from as low as $149.99, an extremely low price considering what is on offer.
