Blackview A80 Pro Design And Display
The design and display of the Blackview A80 Pro are what you would expect in a budget device. The body is made of plastic as expected with a quad-camera setup at the top left side of its back accompanied by an LED flash beside it and a fingerprint sensor at it’s the usual spot. Blackview has its name written far down below the fingerprint sensor.
Meanwhile, the front of the device is covered with a 6.49-inch notched display. The display is an IPS LCD panel with an HD+ resolution and a 19:9 aspect ratio. Sitting in the notch up top is the front-facing camera which has no LED flash.
Blackview A80 Pro weighs just 180g and measures 8.8mm in thickness. The plastic back looks very good in gradient blue. However, it comes in three other colours which include Coral Red, Jade Green and Midnight Black.
Blackview A80 Pro has a total of 5 cameras, 4 of which are at the rear with an LED flash. The rear camera setup here consists of a 13MP main camera, a second 2MP camera and two other 0.3MP cameras. This is accompanied by an LED flash for low light photography.
The selfie camera sitting in the waterdrop notch at the top of the display is an 8MP sensor. This selfie camera comes equipped with features such as AI Face Beauty as well as Facial recognition capabilities, a.k.a Face Unlock.
Hardware and Software
Blackview opted for the Mediatek Helio P25 SoC for the A80 Pro. This SoC from Mediatek has an octa-core processor clocking speeds of up to 2.6GHz paired with an ARM Mali-T880 MP2. It has 4GB of RAM for multitasking through apps and 64GB of internal storage for files. There is a dedicated microSD slot available here asides from the dual SIM slot which can bump up your storage capacity to 256GB.
This device runs Android 9.0 Pie and is as close as stock as possible with no bloatware or ads, at least according to blackview. This, paired with the AI it comes with supposedly makes it run pretty well.
