Blackview is not a new name in the Android smartphone market. The company is best known for its rugged devices. Yet, it recently released a tablet, called the Tab 13 which provides internet connectivity without the use of WiFi or a SIM card. So, let’s get into the specs, features, availability, and expected price of the Blackview Tab 13 in Nepal.

Blackview Tab 13 Overview:

Internet without WiFi?

So the most interesting feature of the Tab 13 is its ability to access the internet without a working WiFi or SIM. For this, Blackview has partnered with SIMO, a leading network operator, that provides internet coverage without SIM or WiFi.

Blackview Tab 13 SIMO connectivity

To use it, users must first register in the SIMO app or website and purchase a package that meets their needs. While SIMO coverage is available in over 135 countries, users in the EU, the United Kingdom, the United States, Mexico, Canada, and Japan can currently only use this service.


Anyways, the tablet is powered by a MediaTek Helio G85 chipset and 6GB of LPDDR4X RAM. It does, however, have a slower eMMC memory protocol and comes in a sole 128GB of storage.

Software-wise, it is pre-loaded with Android 12-based Doke OS P 3.0. There’s even a PC mode that allows you to use the tablet as a replacement for your desktop computer. It can also be paired with an external keyboard magnetically. 

All of this is fueled by a 7280mAh battery that, according to the manufacturer, can provide 5.5 hours of continuous gaming.

Design, Display

The Tab 13 has a 10.1-inch display with Full HD+ resolution and 300 nits of brightness. The display is certified by TUV Rheinland for low blue light and there’s even a 16:10 aspect ratio to improve your content streaming experience. Likewise, you get a dual-speaker setup for audio.
