Rumors making rounds around the web since last year were talking about a Helio P90 that would be announced by the rugged smartphone manufacturer, Blackview. Recently, the company announced its latest flagship Series -BV9800- and expectations were contradicted as it turned out that they adopted Helio P70 instead. Of course, that didn’t affect the new series in any way as it has many other killer features like the FLIR® Lepton® thermal camera as well as a Sony® 48MP sensor and until now the Indiegogo campaign has reached $520,000 backed by 1300 backers.
That was until today as the Blackview Marketing manager, Yan, revealed that his team is busy for the upcoming Helio P90 rugged phone, Blackview BV9900, that will launch on Indiegogo before the end of this year. We don’t expect to be widely available on e-commerce platforms before January, however, it is expected to be announced in December. Judging by its name, it will be the company’s next flagship and will carry a competitive features combo, otherwise, it wouldn’t launch on Indiegogo where customers always pick products that sell themselves.
According to the marketing manager, the upcoming Helio P90 flagship phone is a great addition to the BV series, so you can expect the same waterproof, drop-proof and dustproof performance as in every rugged smartphone from Blackview. That’s all the information we have so far, we’ll keep you posted if anything new comes up.
