One week after being unveiled, the 4.3-inch Blackview N6000 is now launching globally for US$149.99. After the first 200 units, the price will go up by US$10. This rugged phone that runs Android 13-based DokeOS 3.1 is powered by the MediaTek Helio G99 and sports a 48 MP Samsung ISOCELL GM2 main camera.
Those looking for a small handset that is capable of withstanding extreme conditions while providing a modern user experience can get the MediaTek Helio G99-powered Blackview N6000 starting today. Introduced one week ago, this 4.3-inch smartphone hits the global market today via AliExpress for a price of US$149.99 (first 200 units, and US$159.99 for the second batch of 200).
While the claim that this handset “might be the best mini smartphone and the most rugged phone to date” seems exaggerated, it is certain that finding a reasonably fast sub-5-inch smartphone that runs Android 13-based software out of the box is a very difficult task. Although its display only has 4.3 inches in size, it has a good resolution for its size of 500 X 1,200 pixels. The maximum brightness level of this compact display is 450 nits.
In addition to the above, the Blackview N6000 sports 8 GB of memory, 256 GB of storage with microSD support (up to 1 TB memory cards), 16/48 MP front/main camera, dual SIM connectivity, FM radio, NFC support, as well as a 3,880 mAh battery for a generous autonomy of up to 7 hours when watching videos and 22 hours phone calls.
This handset is compatible with the MIL-STD-810H standard for ruggedness and ships alongside a USB-C cable and a power adapter. The display is protected using Corning Gorilla Glass 5 and, in terms of protection from water ingress, the handset is compliant with the IP68 and IP69K specifications. Depeding on the destination, shipping might take over a month.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I’ve been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
