Early gaming smartphones from Huawei or Asus would retail for close to a grand at launch, but the concept has matured enough by now that smaller OEMs can offer their own gaming smartphones for just a fraction of the price. The upcoming BL5000 from Chinese manufacturer Blackview promises many high-performance features including a 7 nm Dimensity 700 SoC, 8 GB of RAM, and even 5G connectivity.

To ensure high performance for long periods, the smartphone integrates a 3D copper pipe with liquid cooling not unlike what Samsung offers for its high-end Galaxy Note 20

More information and specifications about the BL5000 can be found on its product page below. Early adopters can get the new smartphone for only $299 USD plus a pair of Airbuds 3 TWS earbuds at no extra charge.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
