Blackview is slowly but surely gaining traction as a smartphone manufacturer. One of its latest products, the Blackview Omega Pro, has a familiar sleek design and some decent internal specs.
What we have here is a 5-inch handset with a 720p IPS display. Both its front and back are protected by Gorilla Glass 3. Blackview claims the metallic frame design, along with the back-to-back glass protection, helps the phone survive real-world damage. In terms of physical appearance, the Omega Pro reminds us of older iPhone models. (As for the iPhone 6, it’s already been imitated by the Blackview Ultra.)

Blackview further says that the main camera is another strength of the Omega Pro. In their exact words, it’s “comparable with DSLR.” We haven’t seen sample pictures taken from the camera, so it’s hard to confirm the truth of the company’s claim.
With a MediaTek 6753 chipset inside, the Blackview Omega Pro features octa-core 64-bit computing, 3GB of RAM, 16GB built-in storage and 128GB storage expansion via microSD. The same chipset is also allows the phone to have 4G LTE World Mode.
