What gives a gaming phone its prowess and bragging rights? If it were just the processor on board, then every flagship will be a gaming smartphone. The ability of gaming smartphones goes beyond just the processor, a lot of under-the-hood adjustments come to bear.

With the Black Shark Pro, gamers can expect a smooth gaming experience free from excessive heating of the device. This is a result of the dual VC liquid cooling system present in this device. It also comes with bypass charging which helps save the battery health when gaming on charge. This charging technology powers only the phone’s display and components without affecting the battery to prevent overheating and any damage to the battery.

The 5 Pro packs one of the fastest refresh rates and touch sampling available on any device in the market. Already, this device holds the top spot in the DxOMark audio ranking, giving it the best smartphone audio experience.

  • Processor: Snapdragon 8 Gen 1. 
  • Storage: 8GB/256GB, 12GB/256GB fast storage variants.
  • Main Camera: Triple setup with a 108MP main camera, 13MP ultra-wide camera, and a 5MP telephoto camera.

  • Battery: 4650mAh battery with 120W fast charge.
  • Operating System: JoyUI 13, running on Android 12.

This new Black Shark Pro device breaks the norm with gaming smartphones. It comes with a 108MP main camera sensor, which makes the device not only a gaming smartphone but also a mobile photography companion. This device promises a smooth, lag-free experience while playing your best games.
