The Chinese companies are preparing for the biggest 11.11 sale of the year and announcing their new products. Some days ago, I told you about the largest and most powerful tablet from Blackview, but also the Chinese company will release an ulta-budget smartphone called Blackview Shark 8.
Please, do not confuse Blackview Shark with Black Shark from Xiaomi. They are different brands and manufacturers.
However, the biggest surprise of this smartphone for me was the price.
Price and Release Date
Blackview Shark 8 will go on sale on November 11th for the price of $103. However, the first 150 buyers will be able to use the smartphone for only $93.99.
I think the new Blackview smartphone is designed for a young audience because it has a very attractive design. You know, even the box says that this is a gaming smartphone.
Perhaps the main feature in the design of the Blackview Shark 8 is the camera on the back. We will talk about the camera sensors a little later, but this round shape design looks very attractive to me.
If we talk about the screen, it has a diagonal of 6.78 inches and Full HD+ resolution, 1080 x 2460 pixels. The screen refresh rate is 120Hz, which is great for social media scrolling and even gaming.
By the way, the Blackview Shark 8 has a good Helio G99 chipset. We have already tested some devices with this processor, and they offer good performance.
When it comes to the software, Blackview Shark 8 runs on the latest Android 13 operating system with DokeOS 4.0.
If we look at the main camera of the smartphone, we can see two sensors. However, we only know about the 64MP primary sensor. There is no information about the second sensor. It is most likely a macro sensor.
The Chinese company has published some pictures taken on the Blackview Shark 8 camera, and they look pretty good.
We cannot get past the battery. It has a capacity of 5000mAh and 33W fast charging support. It is not a very big battery, but I was very pleased with the fast-charging support.
Finally, let’s talk about connectivity.
As I said in the beginning of the article, the Blackview Shark 8 smartphone has stunning features for its price. I think it would be impossible to find another smartphone with similar specs for $100. If you know, write in the comments below.
