New Flip Phone Game Changer: Blackview HERO 10 Hits the Market for Under $450, with 108MP Camera, Dual Screens & Android Dynamic Island!

Blackview HERO 10

In recent years, foldable smartphones, especially clamshell-form ones, have become popular due to their sleek design, larger screens, and innovative user experiences. However, their high prices, often around seven to eight hundred US dollars, have limited their accessibility. Blackview, a leading technology company expertising in smartphones, has released many surprising products including its first flip phone, HERO 10, which has been showcased in the MWC 2024. With affordable price and competitive configuration, it has gained traction in the field, suggesting a trend of budget-friendlier foldable phones. The official revealed that it will hit the global market in May.

As the market matures, users increasingly favor foldable phones due to improved technology and software tailored to their needs. As the launch is around the corner, key features of the Blackview HERO 10 have been leaked. The Blackview HERO 10, with a 6.9-inch foldable AMOLED display and a versatile rear display, offers a stylish design. A powerful 108MP camera, working in tandem with FlexForm Camera mode and dual screens, opens up more possibilities for novel shooting experience, including dual-screen selfies and DV-like recording experience. Powered by a 6nm G99 chipset and up to 36GB of RAM, it ensures strong performance. Additionally, it boasts 45W fast charging and a 4000mAh dual-core battery for extended use. Its self-developed DokeOS 4.0 system, based on Android 13, introduces dynamic Live View with Dynamic Island-like interactions and split-screen functions for more efficient multitasking. Blackview also promised major Android version updates for three years in a row, ensuring fluid experience. With Blackview’s industry experience, the HERO 10 may break price barriers and drive foldable screen adoption, promoting users’ lifestyle transformation.

Foldable AMOLED Display, Stunning with Eye-comfort Care

As bar-style smartphones with larger-sized screens are too bulky and cumbersome, the clamshell-form phone perfectly balances both to be pocket-friendly with an immersive display to tuck in whether your handbag or be grasped in the palm of your hand. Its main display will come equipped with a 6.9-inch AMOLED display with a high resolution of 2560*1080 which supports 1.07 billion colors and with P3 wide color gamut, ensuring stunning viewing for daily infotainment in the modern information-hungry age. However, its price point has also brought its only pity that it supports 60Hz refresh rate. Though it would be fluid enough for daily social media browsing and binge watching, for pixel-intensive game enthusiasts, it may somehow sacrifice their hands-on gaming experience. More than that, with customers in mind, Blackview also offers eye-care features for its customers with its screen authorized with TÜV SÜD low blue light certification and supporting 1920Hz PWM dimming for low-light eye protection, ensuring comfortable viewing especially under low-lit conditions. It supports up to 1300 nits of adaptive brightness that allows for uncompromising viewing under direct sunlight and can automatically calibrate according to current light.

Benefited by its foldable form and the tailor-made foldable operating system, the Blackview HERO 10 extends the user experience of flip phones further with Split View and a free-stop body, enabling more multitasking convenience, entertainment and efficiency to users’ daily life. It allows users to chat with friends while doing yoga or watching ball games without a tripod or being held in the hand. Users can enjoy vintage music when it stands like a CD player and also grab it for film watching without stands or being held in the hand all the time anytime, anywhere.

Versatile Smart Cover Screen

Adding a touch of convenience and interest to everyday routines, the HERO 10 comes equipped with a versatile smart cover screen. This circular OLED display offers instant access to notifications, receiving or rejecting calls and redial and more, making it easier and more efficient than ever to stay connected on the go. Plus, with its ability to control music playback, have a quick check for weather updates and fitness data, and serve as a viewfinder for clearer and quicker selfies via the 108MP main camera, the smart cover screen enhances user convenience and efficiency. Meeting modern generations for self expression, the smart cover screen is infused with more personalization options. It stands as a window for users to express their everyday mood with diverse watch faces with customization options.

Whopping Camera Capability

Elevating the photography experience in the price point to new heights, the Blackview HERO 10 will come equipped with a powerful 108MP Samsung main camera with 1/1.67-inch sensor size and f/1.9 aperture and an 8MP 120° ultra-wide camera. Fans of Blackview may be familiar with this camera, which first occurred in its flagship smartphone, A200 Pro. On the front, it houses a 32 MP camera. With the latest ArcSoft 9.0 algorithms, users can capture breathtaking photos with enhanced clarity and detail, day or night. With FlexForm camera mode, the Blackview HERO 10 allows for creative compositions from more angles. Experience every shot in an all-new way, hands-free and tripod-free for v-log recording, film a documentary with DV-like shooting experience and use the main display as a makeup mirror for users to adjust their makeup style, anytime, anywhere. Whether personal selfies or group selfies, with a click on a volume button, frame every face beaming with sharper pictures via the rear display.

Introducing Android Dynamic Island

The official sources also highlighted that the Blackview HERO 10 will run Android 13 with its latest DokeOS 4.0 operating system, which will be introducing the Dynamic Live View with pill-shaped cutout at the top of the screen for iPhone’s Dynamic Island-like interaction. From low-battery alerts, music playback control and calls receiving or rejecting to audio recording and even more, the Dynamic Live View informs users on the top of the centered notch without disturbing the current task, allowing users to stay focused without missing a beat.

Offering Three-year Android Major Version Updates

You may feel Android 13 outdated. The tipster also hinted that the Blackview HERO 10 will stand future-ready as Blackview will offer Android major version updates for three years in a row ensuring smooth experience, which seldom happens in the price bracket and also means a lot for Blackview to carve its product and service. From Android 14 to Android 16, users can experience up-to-date Android experience.

Powerful 6nm MediaTek Helio G99 SoC & Up to 36GB RAM

As leaked by the official sources, it doesn’t make compromises for its price. The Blackview HERO 10 will come equipped with a 6nm MediaTek Helio G99 chipset, the most powerful 4G chipset, ensuring fluid multitasking, navigation and gaming experience without stutters or lags. Plus, its 12GB of RAM can now be doubled to up to 36GB thanks to Blackview’s latest RAM expansion technology, providing more fluid multitasking and faster app-launching speed.
