While most of the smartphone consumers use their devices to take pictures and stay connected to social media, it doesn’t mean that there isn’t a demand for gaming smartphones. Earlier last year, Razer released its gaming smartphone which received fair share of positive reviews. Over last couple of weeks, Black Shark Technologies has been teasing a new handset and now, the company has finally unveiled its new gaming smartphone. Interestingly, the smartphone is pretty different from its competitors and has an accessory geared towards gamers.
The latest smartphone comes with a 5.99-inch 18:9 fullHD+ IPS display, Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor paired with 6GB or 8GB RAM. As for storage capacity, the 6GB model comes with 64GB internal memory and the 8GB one comes with 128GB internal memory. Apart from these specifications, the Black Shark phone will have stereo speakers and a dual camera system with an aperture of f/1.75 and f/1.75. The front facing camera is 20MP on with an aperture of f/2.2.
While these features are pretty standard for a flagship smartphone, the upcoming smartphone set itself apart from other smartphones by offering a gamepad hardware accessory which will act as a gamepad.
If you were thinking of getting your hands on the smartphone, then you will be disappointed to know that it won’t be available to global market immediately. However, if you are located in China, then you can start pre-ordering the smartphone for ¥2,999 ($477) for the 6GB RAM model, and ¥3,499 ($556) for the 8GB RAM model.
