Blackview unveils A96 MediaTek Helio G99-powered Android 13 smartphone
The ubiquitous MediaTek Helio G99 SoC is back in another device for the budget-conscious consumer, namely the Blackview A96. This 6.5-inch Android 13 smartphone is scheduled to launch via AliExpress next week for introductory prices starting at US$169.99.
The Blackview A96 will be available in two hardware configurations. The first, with an early bird price of US$169.99, features 8 GB of memory, while the second comes with 12 GB for just US$10 more, and both feature 256 GB of internal storage space, which should be more than enough for most users. The 6.5-inch IPS display with 1,080 X 2,400 pixels has a 120 Hz dynamic refresh rate and carries the TÜV SÜD Low Blue Light Certification.
In the camera department, the Blackview A96 sports a 16 MP selfie shooter and a trio of 48 + 8 + 2 MP on the back, all with ArcSoft 6.0 image processing algorithms. The dual Smart-PA speakers are tuned by Harman AudioEFX.
The software environment consists of Blackview's Android 13-based DokeOS 3.1 with improved customization, ease of use, privacy, and fluidity. The 4,380 mAh battery only comes with 18 W fast charging and provides up to 504 hours of standby, according to Blackview.
