Blackview carries the sturdiest range of smartphones on the planet. Now, the Chinese smartphone maker is all set to launch its latest model called BV9500 Pro, which the company claims can survive anything. Blackview is planning on crowdfunding the phone on Indiegogo website. Customers who support the project, will also get a 20 percent discount on ordering the phone.

Blackview doesn’t seem to be exaggerating when it says that the phone is indestructible. The smartphone features a robust chassis reinforced by aviation grade aluminum alloy, and industrial rubber. As a result, the phone is durable, and can handle the harshest of situations. Blackview has even created a video in which the phone can been seen surviving a number of the extreme tests. This includes being frozen in ice, run over by a car, being dropped from a height, being buried in sand, and being thrown onto rough surfaces.

The phone also features an ingress rating of IP68, which means it’s both water and dust proof. It can be submerged about 1.8 meters under water for 30 minutes. Blackview also claims on its website that the phone will work under extremely hot or cold conditions.
