2022-06-29 2817 0

Following the official release of Android 12 back in October last year, more mobile manufacturers are working hard to release Android 12-based updates for their custom Android skins.

After our R&D team’s persistent efforts, our BV4900 Pro rugged Android phone would get leap-forward OS upgrades first, from Android 10 to the Doke OS 3.0 based on Android 12 and support a new RAM Expansion Technology that helps bump the 4GB of RAM to 7GB(The RAM expansion technology is also used on our regular phablet phone model A55 Pro).

  • What we did on Android 12?

    Android 12 has made new upgrades in such as UI design and privacy protection, bringing users better experience. Blackview take you to experience the newest features of Android 12. Let's have a look what we did on Android 12.

    Highlight 1: Built for New-level Design, Convenience, Smoothness

    Doke OS 3.0 has tested its versatility and utility on the flagships: 4G night vision phone Blackview BV8800, 5G night vision Blackview BL8800, and the 5G thermal imaging smartphone Blackview BL8800 Pro, and gained much popularity among users.

    And now it’s coming to the Blackview BV4900 Pro. Compared with the 1.0, 2.0, and 2.1 versions, it brings a massive overhaul of the design, convenience, and smoothness.

    Regarding the Design, the visual aesthetics, consistency, expression, and readability are what the Doke OS 3.0 matter most.

    It needles into what users long for, including improved overall layout, redesigned wallpapers, shape-changeable icons, and three new types of Dark Mode options.

    The upgraded DIY-able desktop that allows for grouping or uninstalling apps, dismissing the folders, or locking the layout benefits much for personalization.

    As for the Convenience, The new Smart Floating Windows break the limits to facilitate your control over Blackview BV4900 Pro. Swipe down to reach the Control Panel to access the screenshot function and set the Wi-Fi or Bluetooth all in one place without jumping to the Setting interface.

    Swipe right for the Minus-one Screen with customizable quick-glance cards displaying various status information. Whenever users need to access tools and apps quickly, Doke OS 3.0 has the Smart Sidebar up its sleeve. Swiping right or left and holding for a second to activate the Sidebar, users can stick their frequently-used apps to the Sidebar.

    When it comes to the Smoothness, users will take no sweat to feel the difference — as silky-smooth and responsive as they can be, from booting up, switching between, or closing the apps to navigating up or down and left or right.

    All can attribute to the Doke OS 3.0's software optimizations over the AI Pre-loading, animation, and CPU scheduling to boost the performance by 30%.

    Furthermore, Doke OS 3.0 inherits most self-developed Blackview apps and tools available from its predecessors, including the System Manager, Data Migration Helper, Cold Room, Game Mode, Notebook, Camera, and Clock, but brings numerous touch-ups here and there.

  • Highlight 2: Android 12 — Google Android’s most personal OS yet

    More and more mainstream smartphones have refreshed themselves with the newest Android OS, but it’s not the case for rugged phones, most of which are Android 11 and the older Android 10.

    Working hand in hand with the Doke OS 3.0, the Android 12 brings a whole new UI experience to Blackview BV4900 Pro.

    The biggest draw of Android 12 is the boundary-pushing redesign called Material You, which drives the personalization to a new degree.

    Blackview BV4900 Pro features a new tweaked wallpaper-theming system that’s different from the native Android 12 OS. When you change your wallpaper, the colors of your Settings menu and select Google apps will alter automatically. Easily personalize the look and feel of your phone.

    Privacy is another part on which Android 12 focuses. The newly-added Privacy Dashboard gives you a clear and comprehensive view of when apps access your location, camera, or mic over the past 24 hours.

    If you see anything that you’re not comfortable with, you can effortlessly revoke app permissions right from the dashboard. With new easy-to-use, powerful privacy features, you’ll have peace of mind knowing that you can control who can see your data and when.

    Android 12 has redone the animation with the buttery-like, stretch over-scroll effect. When you drag any visual elements or reach the top or end, the scrolling contents expand and bounce back.

    Android 12 also comes with other helpful enhancements, like improved accessibility features, scrolling screenshots, and ways for all your devices to work better together.

  • RAM Expansion Technology — Expand from 4GB to 7GB

    In addition to the OS upgrades, the RAM expansion technology is no slouch, either.

    Users now can experience the benefits of RAM expansion technology from Blackview devices, which the technology is also appeared from other smartphone brands like Xiaomi and OnePlus and more. Thanks to the RAM Expansion that virtually enlarges the 4GB of RAM to 7GB, users can expect enhanced efficiency, smoothness, and multitasking power from the enlarged RAM that supports upgraded data processing capability.

    In addition, Blackview BV4900 Pro supports adjustment of the volume of the RAM expansion, from 1GB to up to 3GB. The RAM expansion is open by default, and the default RAM volume is the perfect point for reaching the balance between speed and fluidity based on Blackview Laboratory tests.

    Light users who access a limited set of mobile services or functionality can lower the expanded RAM volume or dismiss it since the higher the expansion, the longer the data processing time; heavy users can slide it to the max for preference. Check out these simple steps below to fully unlock the feature:

  • Step 1: Open [Settings-About phone], click on [RAM], enter [Memory expansion]
  • Step 2: Select the expansion size as needed, and restart the phone
  • Step 3: Open “About Phone” to find the expanded RAM applied under the RAM section

  • Availability

    One thing to note, all the new upgrades are not available to the sold (before June 30, 2022) BV4900 Pro. And the updated BV4900 Pro will hit the market soon. And more and more Blackview devices will be powered with Android 12 soon.
