A new player in the foldable market is looking to emerge with an aggressive pricing strategy. Blackview is gearing up to launch the Hero 10, a foldable device that could potentially claim the title of the world’s most affordable folding phone. To find our more about the Blackview Hero 10, including its pricing, rumors, specifications, and more, let’s dive in!

Blackview Hero 10 Rumors


Mediatek Helio G99 Chipset

While the Nubia flip comes with a more powerful Snapdragon 7 gen 1 processor,  the Blackview Hero 10 will feature a MediaTek Helio G99 processor, meaning the foldable will be lacking 5G connectivity.

Design and Display

Like the Nubia Flip 5G, the Blackview Hero 10 will feature a circular external display when folded. However, the company has yet to share specific details about this secondary screen. When unfolded, the main display will expand to a 6.9-inch screen with a 60Hz refresh rate, a compromise Blackview made to achieve a lower price point compared to the 120Hz panel. Similarly, the Hero 10 measures 8.8mm thick when unfolded, and weighs 198 grams.

The camera setup on the Blackview Hero 10 includes a 108-megapixel primary sensor and an 8-megapixel ultrawide lens. according to rumors, this upcoming foldable is also rumored to feature a 32 MP front camera for selfies and videos. While these specifications sound impressive on paper, real-world performance will ultimately determine the quality of the camera system.

Battery and Rest

Blackview has equipped the Hero 10 with 12GB of RAM and 256GB of storage, which should provide ample space for multitasking and data storage. The device also supports 45W fast charging, although there is no concrete details on how much battery it would pack.

  • Chipset: MediaTek Helio G99 processor
  • Weight: 198g
  • Camera: 108MP primary camera, 8MP ultrawide

Blackview Hero 10 Pricing and Launch Date

Available for purchase in May, the Blackview Hero 10 is expected to carry a price tag of just €399, approximately $425. This positions it as a more budget-friendly option compared to the recently released nubia Flip 5G, currently the most affordable foldable smartphone at $499. It’s pretty unlikely, that this foldable were to hit the Nepalese market shelves, but if by any means it arrives here, we expect this flip phone price in Nepal to be NPR 65,000.
