Blackview's premium super-rugged BV9900 Pro handset -- equipped with a huge battery, 48-megapixel Sony camera, and built-in FLIR Lepton thermal camera -- is getting a new upgrade: Android 10.

I'm a huge fan of Blackview handsets, especially the versions with the built-in FLIR thermal camera. That tool is amazing for a whole range of diagnostics, from mechanical and electrical to HVAC and building inspections. 

My Blackview BV9800 Pro is a constant companion these days.

The BV9900 Pro is an IP68-, IP69K-, and MIL-STD-810G-certified ruggedized device and is capable of withstanding accidental drops from onto hard surfaces, as well as dips into the water with zero damage.
