Looks like Black Shark’s latest Black Shark 3 is coming to Malaysia, and it’s set to be revealed on April 30. The gaming brand backed by Xiaomi posted a teaser to their Facebook, announcing their latest entry into the gaming smartphone market in Malaysia.
The movement control order is set to end on April 28, so the launch for the Black Shark 3 will probably come in the form of an online stream event. Though for now, it’s unclear whether both the Black Shark 3 and Black Shark 3 Pro will be landing on Malaysian shores just yet.
But now, on to the specs. Both the Black Shark 3 and 3 Pro come with a Snapdragon 865 processor and AMOLED displays capable of 90Hz refresh rate. However, the Black Shark 3 is a massive 7.1-inch screen with a QHD+ resolution, while the Black Shark 3 comes with a slightly smaller (still massive) 6.67-inch FHD+ display. Both devices come with up to 12GB of LPPDR5 RAM, and up to 512GB of UFS 3.0 storage. But keep in mind the lower specce 8GB RAM variant uses only LPDDR4x RAM.
One of the more overpowered features on these phones though, have to be their batteries. Especially on the 3 Pro, which houses a 5,000mAh battery capable of a whopping 65W wired fast charge. That’s pretty crazy, especially on a gaming smartphone. The Black Shark 3 on the other hand, comes with a 4,720mAh battery with a 30W charge.
No details on their prices just yet, but in China, the Black Shark 3 starts at CNY 3,499 (~RM2160) for 8GB/128GB variant, and the Black Shark 3 Pro starts off at CNY 4,699 (~RM2900) for 8GB/256GB. That should be a base line, but we’ll know more when the Black Shark 3 lineup is revealed on April 30.
