Baofeng is on a roll. Their new website not only lists the latest models, but gives some clues regarding their future plans. Under one of the drop-down menus there’s a link to ‘Two-Way Mobile Radios’, but no products are listed yet. We’ll have to keep an eye on that part of the website.
What they do list, amongst other things, are new varieties of the Baofeng UV-5R. A new, hi-tech looking LCD is the most striking feature, which we already know from certain TYT models. The new models are dubbed BF-F8 and BF-F8+. From the website:
“BF-F8+ series two-way radio are the newest styles by BAO FENG, it has multi-functions, such as dual band, dual display, dual watch, its performances are excellent, the shape is fashionable. The background is very unique, make it look elegant and luxious.. “
The BF-F8+ looks nice for sure, but I expect the other specifications to stay the same. Apart from product and company info, there are some nice pictures of the production process. Worth a look.
