The Black Shark 3 Pro gaming smartphone will be launched in Malaysia tomorrow on 4 June 2020. During the first week of its launch, the phone will be available exclusively via the company’s official store on Shopee until 10 June.
To recap, the Pro variant sports a 7.1-inch AMOLED display with up to 90Hz screen refresh. Instead of notches or punch-hole cutouts, the phone features a 20MP selfie camera located in the thin bezel on top of its display. Situated on its top and bottom are two front facing symmetry stereo speakers.
Under the hood is a 5G-enabled Snapdragon 865 chipset, paired with 12GB RAM and a storage capacity of 256GB. Powering the smartphone is a 5,000mAh battery, which supports 65W fast charging via USB-C or 18W through a magnetic port. Keeping the gaming smartphone’s temperature in check during intense gaming sessions is the company’s own “Sandwich” liquid cooling system.
Other than that, the Black Shark 3 Pro sports a triple camera setup consisting of a 64MP main sensor, 13MP ultra-wide and a 5MP depth sensor. On the corners of its right-hand side are the “Master Trigger” mechanical shoulder buttons that pop-up when activated, and on top of the phone is a 3.5mm headphone jack.
Also introduced alongside the gaming smartphone is the new Black Shark Bluetooth Earphones, which features ergonomic bullet-style earbud designs. The brand touts the wireless earphones to have the world’s lowest latency of only 58ms. It also features Knowles balanced armature drivers, as well as RGB lighting. Black Shark claims that the earphones can be recharged fully in 90 minutes via USB-C, offering 14 hours of playback with RGB lights turned off.
The Black Shark 3 Pro will retail at RM4,199, while the brand’s Bluetooth Earphones is priced at RM399. In conjunction with the phone’s launch, Black Shark is also offering a special promotion during the first two days – where the first 70 to 80 buyers are eligible to receive a gift bundle featuring other products from the brand. Additionally, the company added that the first 10 buyers will earn Shopee a shopping voucher worth RM100 after making their purchase.
