I habe it too. But my virusscanner scan the apps and dont alert me. So i think that are system addins. BeautySnap could be for the New camerafeature .
And you could deactivate it!

It is NO spyware.

BeautySnap is a camerafeature.
LocationEM2 is a MediaTek Location manager. It's a Mobile AGPS server.

We attempt an official response from admin. The explanation that is a camera app is not true. I attempt an updated ROM without this crap

BeautySnap is officially acknowledged as AdWare, so annoying userrs with unwanted ads.
As it's installed by default Blackview annoys the users which don't want this kind of apps which cause higher data flow and possibly data breaches due to unwanted date being transferred.
But we already know that customers wishes are ot in the focus of Blackview...
