We first note the presence of small retractable triggers on the edge of the phone. They are customizable and can be used as shortcuts as well as during a game session. The touch screen has a high refresh rate, 90 Hz and a tactile response rate of 270 Hz to reduce latency. A cooling system is also integrated to maintain the performance of the Snapdragon 865 and stereo speakers are present.

Technical sheet :

  • Snapdragon 865 (5G compatible)
  • Adreno 650
  • 8 GB / 256 GB or 12 GB / 256 GB (LPDDR5 UFS 3.0)

It incorporates most of the technical characteristics of its big brother. We find a processor Snapdragon 865 coupled to 8 or 12 GB of RAM and 128 GB of internal storage. The device is a little more compact since it only has a slab of 6.67 inch AMOLED. Finally, a 4,720 mAh battery is integrated with 65-watt fast charging.

On the photo side, the two models have a triple module of 64 + 13 (wide-angle) + 5 megapixels and a 20 megapixel front camera.

The Black Shark 3 (12 + 256 GB) will be available at the end of May at a price of 729 euros.
