Black Shark 5 gaming phone set to launch soon: here are the details
Black Shark 4 recently debuted and it is rumored that the company has already started work on the successor to the device. According to the prognosticator Digital discussion station, the next gaming phone would be called the Black Shark 5.
The Black Shark 5, which is said to have model number KTUS-A0, may launch in the near future according to reports. The device is expected to ship with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 888+ chipset.
It is supposed to offer 100W + fast charging or higher charging speeds. The company’s new gaming phone could potentially be backed by a battery capacity of 4,500mAh or more. The Black Shark 5’s display will likely offer support for FHD + resolution and up to 144Hz refresh rate, similar to its predecessor.
The rest of the details are still secret. It’s important to note that the company has yet to confirm the launch of the Black Shark 5, so we’ll have to wait a bit longer to find out more.
Xiaomi launched its Black Shark 4 and Black Shark 4 Pro gaming smartphones in March earlier this year. Both smartphones are equipped with a 6.67-inch AMOLED E4 display from Samsung. The display supports 144Hz refresh rate and 720Hz touch sample rate.
Under the hood, the Black Shark 4 is powered by the Snapdragon 870, while the Pro variant is powered by the Snapdragon 888 SoC. Both smartphones come with 120W fast charging right out of the door. The battery capacity is 4,500mAh and the battery is said to charge from 0 to 100% in just 14 minutes 50 seconds.
Both smartphones contain a triple rear camera setup, but with different specifications. While the Black Shark 4 Pro comes with a 64 MP primary shooter, accompanied by an 8 MP secondary camera and a 5 MP tertiary shooter.
The Black Shark 4, on the other hand, comes with a 48 MP primary camera, along with the same 8 MP and 5 MP secondary and tertiary shooters. The Black Shark 4 comes with physical shoulder triggers.
The Black Shark 4’s trigger buttons “pop out” when you want to play games, causing them to go up and turn into physical buttons. These triggers can be mapped for other functions as well as quick access to personal information. It is important to note that smartphones have yet to be launched in India.
