Hardware and benchmarks

The hardware sector of Black Shark 3 and 3 Pro could not fail to be at the top. The two flagships are moved by Snapdragon 865 from Qualcomm, made at 7 nm and with a Kryo 585 CPU (1 x 2.84 GHz + 3 x 2.42 GHz + 4 x 1.8 GHZ). The graphic part is managed by the Adreno 650 GPU, all supported by 8 / 12 GB of RAM LPDDR5 e 128 / 256 GB of UFS 3.0 storage not expandable.

The gaming experience is also dictated by dedicated functions, such as the integration on the Pro of a pair of physical push buttons. These are inserted within the side frame: just a click on the screen to make them tick when necessary and be used as a trigger within your games. To encourage the experience there are also the voice commands to use i-game (look at the absurd promotional spot). The audio sector is then characterized by stereo speaker and from the entrance mini-jack by 3.5 mm.

To support gaming (and not only) there is a connectivity department including network support 5G SA + NSA (n41, n78 and n79), 4G e Wi-Fi 6. Based on how a phone is usually held when playing, Black Shark has used an X configuration, with antennas arranged so as not to be occluded.

In order to calm the "hot spirits", inside Black Shark 3 there is a system of liquid cooling double layer. There are two copper heat pipes and they have been placed both above and below the motherboard. If this were not enough, you can also take advantage of an external accessory with a fan in charge of further lowering the temperatures.

Speaking of battery, Black Shark 3 is powered by one unit from 4720 mAh, while on the upper model it is from 5000 mAh. For both, there is support for fast charging from 65W, able to bring the battery from 0% to 100% in just 38 minutes. It should be noted, however, that the basic 8/128 GB version only reaches 30W. In addition to the canonical USB Type-C port, charging (at 18W) can also take place in the form of magnetic attack, thanks to a dedicated accessory. Doing so avoids a possible encumbrance where you hold the phone with your hand.

camera

The photographic department of the Black Shark 3 series is characterized by one triple camera set in the triangular glass section on the back.
