Meet the Rugged Smartphone Replacement for Your Regular Cell Phone


If you’re looking for an affordable rugged smartphone that’s just as stunning as it is sturdy, then you’ll love the Blackview BV4900 Pro. Read on to discover what sets this handset apart from regular cell phones.


Blackview BV4900 Pro NFC waterproof rugged smartphone


This handset comes at a price you’d expect to pay for a conventional, powerful cell phone, but it has so much more to offer. Let’s take a closer look, giving you an idea of what you can expect from the Blackview range, even at some of the most affordable prices as available here, straight from Blackview South Africa.


Fast and powerful processor


The handset comes with an Helio A22 octa-core processor, giving it exceptional computing speed and capacity, especially because it also has 4 GB RAM. You won’t have to struggle with slow speed or apps hanging. The 64 GB ROM storage makes it possible to keep a substantial number of photos and videos on your phone. With the support for an additional 128 GB of storage, you can add even more games, apps and videos onto your device without having to worry about slow speed and having to clean up the storage space regularly.




Big battery with long operating hours


You’d expect a rugged smartphone with many functionalities to require regular battery charges. Fortunately, Blackview knows that you’ll most probably not be near a charge point when you, for example, hike or explore the outdoors. For this reason, they’ve included a mega-sized 5580 mAh battery that gives 12 hours of gaming and videos before a recharge is required. To make charging even more convenient, the brand has included OTG functionality that utilises the handset for reverse changing needs.




The handset makes it easy to navigate through cities and rural areas alike. It comes with support for GLONASS, GPS, BeiDou and Galileo.


NFC functionality


NFC refers to near field communication and makes it possible for two devices in close proximity to one another to communicate. It’s possible because of a magnetic field around the device, which gives it wireless connectivity with the other device that’s also NFC-enabled. With this technology, shopping becomes a whole lot easier as the wireless standard makes it possible to pay for items using your rugged smartphone.


Rugged smartphone for outdoor use


The handset is IP69K dust-, water- and drop-proof rated and has passed the rigorous requirements for MIL-STD-810. You can use the handset in harsh operating environments, go on adventure trips without having to be concerned about rain or water splash while you canoe, and you also don’t have to worry about damage to the microphone or speaker as a result of dust and sand particles. It can be submerged in water up to 1,5 metres deep and still work underwater for picture-taking for up to 30 minutes at a time. Even if you drop it up to 1,8 metres, you can simply pick it up and continue using the handset. The corners and screen have shock and drop protection.


Large HD screen and superb camera 


With a 5,7-inch HD screen, this handset provides for ample viewing space, also making it easier to use the touch functionality. In addition, the BV4900 Pro comes with a 13 MP rear camera with settings for panorama, professional and monochrome. The front camera is 5 MP with technology to accurately sense light, skin tone and age.
