The Blackview S8 is a fairly new smartphone having only become available to buy within the last few weeks. However, and in spite of it being so new, it is one that the company states has been doing well since its arrival. One of the reasons likely to be behind its success is the camera performance as this is a smartphone that not only sports a dual camera setup on the back of the device, but also another dual camera setup on the front. With four cameras on board, this makes the Blackview S8 an affordable yet camera-centric smartphone.
More recently, the company has released a new video, as well as a number of camera samples (shown below) which look to highlight how well the cameras work in general. Specifically noting how regardless of the shot taken, the images come out better than expected and without the user having to do any tweaking before or after taking the image. As a result, Blackview is noting how this is an ideal option for those looking for more of a point-and-shoot smartphone camera experience.
As for the actual hardware, both the front and rear dual camera setups on the Blackview S8 are spearheaded by a 13-megapixel primary camera, and backed up by 0.3-megapixel secondary camera. The rear camera make use of a Sony IMX258 sensor along with an f/2.0 aperture. A setup which Blackview notes will offer well-taken shots regardless of whether a wide-angle shot is needed or a portrait shot. Cameras aside, the Blackview S8 features a 5.7-inch display along with a 1440 x 720 (aka HD+) resolution and an 18:9 aspect ratio – so as well as the four cameras you can also expect minimal bezels. Inside, the Blackview S8 comes loaded with 4GB RAM, 64GB storage, and is powered by a MediaTek 6750T processor. Additional features include a fingerprint sensor, a 3,180 mAh (Quick Charge 2.0-supported) battery, and Android 7.0 (Nougat). As for its cost, the Blackview S8 is available to buy from the likes of Aliexpress priced at only $169.99. More details on the Blackview S8 are available through the link below.
