Blackview OSCAL S60 Pro with Stylish Ruggedized Design Launched
Blackview started as a rugged phone provider in 2013 and has now enlarged product lines with mainstream smartphones, tablets, earphones, smartwatches, and laptops. To better improve its reach in the smart device market, it, in 2021, launched the brother brand OSCAL featuring the same product portfolio but more oriented for the global younger base under 35. Consistent with the tagline Only the Brave, OSCAL is continuously committed to giving young users products of trendsetting design, leap-forward performance, and uncompromising quality at high affordability.
OSCAL has released the entry-level tablet king, Pad 8, and the budget smartphones, C20 and C20 Pro, and rose to fame. Ambitious to be irreplaceable among users, OSCAL doesn’t focus only on tablets and mainstream smartphones. After months of R&D, OSCAL announces a value-for-budget rugged phone called OSCAL S60 Pro will debut with a ruggedized design to satisfy the needs of the young.
IP68 & IP69K & MIL-STD-810H certified
Young people are keen on outdoor adventures and extreme sports for the thrill, and it’s unavoidable that the handset will break on the way. OSCAL makes the most out of years of Blackview experience on rugged phone R&D and design and structurally reinforces S60 Pro from the double-shot-molding back cover, thickened jagged corners to the scratch-resistant screen glass for remarkable ruggedness and protection. IP68 & IP69K & MIL-STD-810H certified, the S60 Pro will stand the test of time, resisting severe falls, breaks, water immersion, or rough uses, let alone the daily kitchen oil smudges, coffee splashes, or tumbles by kids and pets. The symmetrical back cover of 3 colors, including classic Eclipse Black and lively Oasis Green and Flame Orange, conform to the aspiration for youth and style.
Powered longer with a 5580mAh battery
For young outdoor goers and workers, phones that run out of power quickly and require recharging will mess up their schedules. OSCAL S60 Pro embeds a large 5580mAh battery with effective AI power management to get through a day of heavy use. According to the test data from OSCAL Laboratory, it can support up to 7hrs of gaming and 28hrs of music. Count on it on the go without the hassle of frequently searching for a power socket or power bank.
Doke OS 2.1 based on Android 11
User experience is always of priority in OSCAL development. The widely acclaimed Doke OS developed by Blackview will also apply to all OSCAL smartphones, including the S60 Pro, but with the redesigned style. Now the OS has been upgraded to the 2.1 version for improved intuitiveness, fluidity, and effectiveness. For example, System Manager provides all-in-one control over the battery, app, trash cleaning, and gaming management. Cold Room allows for freezing rogue apps and stopping stealthy background running to save memory. Moreover, based on Android 11, young users will also get the latest new Android features for better conversations and privacy protection.
