The Blackview A7 is without a doubt the cheapest smartphone to feature dual rear cameras. Less than 40 bucks for such a device is a pretty good deal, though it must be said that dual rear sensors don't imply better camera performance.

Dual rear cameras have been pseudo-premium features, with forerunner devices like the HTC One M8, LG G5, Huawei P9, and Honor 8 all being flagships. That trend has hit a massive red light, though, as Chinese OEMs are doing all they can to bring such features to the very depths of the Android market. It's a wondrous thing, really.

Blackview, a lesser known Chinese manufacturer, has announced the launch of their extreme budget device, the A7 Pro. It's a simple, basic device for the most part. Till you turn it over, that is, and see the dual rear cameras it houses. 

The A7 reportedly sports a 5" HD display, which is rather impressive if true. It's powered by MediaTek's entry-level MT6580A SoC (no LTE), features 1 GB of RAM, 8 GB of storage, and a 2500mAh battery.

The cameras, its standout feature, are listed as being a  5MP Samsung S5K4E2 sensor and an accompanying 0.3MP Samsung GC0310 secondary sensor. The selfie shooter is an uninspiring 2MP sensor.

The A7 retails for US$39.99 and can be bought at online stores like Aliexpress.
