The Blackview S8 comes with quad cameras and a bezel-less display

Not actually bezel-less but close enough, we suppose.

The S8 is Blackview's take on the trending bezel-less display and, while it may not be perfect, there's little doubt that it's a solid offering in its intended market space.

It's an all-out race to the full-screen display peak at the moment, with OEMs like UMIDIGI and Huawei buying into the trend with the newly released S2 and Maimang 6 respectively. Blackview is the latest Chinese company to go that route, with the underdog set for the release of its bezel-less S8.

Blackview is known for its budget, rugged phones, so this may be new territory for the company. While it's a bit early to make a call on how good the S8 actually is, it does look solid on paper. It sports a 5.7-inch 18:9 display with a HD+ 720x1440 resolution, MT6750T, 4 GB of LPDDR3 RAM, 64 GB of storage, dual rear 13 MP cameras, dual selfie shooters, and a 3180 mAh battery. Not an overwhelming package by any means but one that most likely offers good value for money, if the company's pricing history is any indication. 

Design-wise, the S8 does a decent enough job, though we're not quite impressed by Blackview's interpretation of a bezel-less display—there are obvious side bezels on it, and it has a sizeable chin.

The S8 will be available in Silk Gold, Coral Blue, and Magic Black.

I like tech, simple as. Half the time, you can catch me writing snarky sales copy. The rest of the time, I'm either keeping readers abreast with the latest happenings in the mobile tech world or watching football. I worked as both a journo and freelance content writer for a couple of years before joining the Notebookcheck team in 2017. Feel free to shoot me some questions on Twitter or Reddit if it so tickles thine fancy.
