We were mightily impressed with the Blackview BV9900 Pro rugged smartphone when we reviewed the device earlier this year – and even gave it our coveted editor’s choice award. Now, Blackview has released a new and cheaper iteration: the BV9900E.

The discounted version of Blackview’s flagship rugged smartphone is available from online retailer AliExpress for only $259.99 (£210/AU$370) – that’s almost half the price of its flashier cousin.
