While Nokia has long been recognized for producing durable and functional phones, the current trend in the smartphone industry leans towards larger screens, catering to enhanced visual experiences and more space for operations. However, this trend has brought drawbacks, including the inconvenience of carrying bulky devices, difficulties with one-handed operation, increased vulnerability to damage, and higher power consumption to affect battery life. In tribute to the classics, Blackview, a pioneering manufacturer with a decade of expertise in rugged phone research and development, proudly presents the Blackview N6000—a 4.3-inch mini rugged phone renowned for its unparalleled durability and exceptional functionality.
For durability, its drop-resistant and water-resistant performance is vastly superior to alternative rugged phones due to a smaller force area, which seems to be capable of withstanding a 5M Death-broke & 60M Throw-proofness & 15M Water-proofness for 30 mins & 20000 Kg Weight-bearing capacity. For functionality, it packs a 6nm Octa-core MediaTek Helio G99 with 16GB RAM and 256GB ROM, ArcSoft® 5.0-powered dual camera (16MP front & 48MP Samsung® ISOCELL GM2), and DokeOS 3.1 based on Android 13. Additionally, integrating a small screen and solid-state battery ensures an impressive standby time of up to 18 days. With the support of HiFi Mode by Smart-PA Box Speaker, Blackview N6000 will escort users’ audio journey with peace of mind.
Top in Durability: Ruggedness
- Mighty Small but Seriously Tough
Differing from all the other rugged alternatives, the mini rugged phone is very rugged but compact. To meet the demand for one-handed operation, Blackview N6000 has a width of only 4.3 inches, equivalent to an ordinary computer mouse according to rumours. Even individuals with small hands like kids and women can easily operate it single-handedly. Though the size of the phone is relatively small, the font on the device is large, making it convenient for elderly users to operate and read. To cater to the need for convenient portability, Blackview N6000 is likely to weigh only 208 grams, just as light as a regular wallet. Whether it’s children putting it in their pockets to go to school, women carrying it in their handbags while shopping, or outdoor sports enthusiasts carrying it in wristband phone holders while cycling, hiking, or mountaineering, its lightweight design does not burden the users.
How to address the issue of fragile screens? Just like any other flagship rugged phone, Blackview N6000 features rubber edges equipped with metal inserts and visible screws, and its thickness of 18.44 millimetres is twice as thick as regular smartphones, ensuring its robustness. Additionally, the QHD+ screen is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 5 to offer 2x scratch resistance with a 100,000 times wear-proof lineation test, so there will be no problem cracking it in multiple face-down drops to concrete. In addition to meeting the military-grade specifications of MIL-STD-810H for drop-proof and IP68 & IP69K ratings for waterproof, Blackview N6000 is told to excel in drop-resistance due to its smaller force area when compared to other regular rugged phones. If the rumours are true, it is said to withstand up to 5M Death-broke & 60M Throw-proofness &15M Water-proofness for 30 mins&20000Kg Weight-bearing capacity. Whether it’s the elderly or kids accidentally dropping the phone, it will remain unharmed. There is no need not worry about screen breakage for cycling enthusiasts if their phone accidentally falls during their ride.
Top in Durability: Solid-state Battery
- Extreme Solid Battery with Higher Energy Density
Besides the lower battery consumption due to its smaller screens, Blackview N6000 has put more effort into its battery. For those who are more demanding in battery performance like construction workers, marathon runners, or cyclists, its solid-state battery makes it more durable with higher energy density and safer without flammable components. Whether it’s outdoor enthusiasts scrolling through Facebook in near-freezing conditions or construction workers texting on the surface of the sun, the solid-state battery seems to remain stable even in extreme temperatures ranging from -40°C to 80°C. Despite having a battery capacity of only 3880mAh, Blackview N6000, aided by its high energy density of solid-state battery and lower battery consumption of a smaller screen, can provide an impressive standby time of up to 18 days, which is sufficient for several days of moderate usage.
