The Black Shark 2 Pro has made its global debut yesterday, September 3rd, in Malaysia. There, the company (which, apparently, is not owned by Xiaomi), has spilled plenty of promising stuff about the new smartphone.
For one, users can expect great specs. With a powerful processor and a beefed-up RAM and GPU, the Black Shark 2 Pro is set to rival ASUS’ forthcoming ROG Phone II. There are funky colored variants to choose from, all of which come without the dreaded notch, punch hole, or mechanical selfie-cam popup.
One thing of note, however, is the refresh rate. With OnePlus 7 Pro showing it’s very much possible to implement a higher refresh rate (90Hz), it’s very suspect to learn that the Black Shark Pro 2 isn’t gunning for high refresh rates like, say, the ROG Phone II does.
Here’s a list of Black Shark 2 Pro specs to get you up to speed:
6.39-inch Full HD+ AMOLED display (with 34.7ms input latency, motion interpolation, Magic Press, with support for HDR and DCI-P3)
128GB/256GB of expandable UFS 3.0 storage
48MP f/1.75 primary rear camera and 12MP f/2.2 telephoto rear camera (with dual-LED flash, PDAF, Dark Light enhancement, Portrait mode)
20MP f/2.0 front camera (with beauty mode, 4K recording)
4G LTE, LTE-A
WiFi, Bluetooth, NFC
In-display Fingerprint scanner
USB Type-C port
Liquid Cool 3.0
Front-facing stereo speakers
4000mAh battery (with 27W Fast Charging)
Android 9.0 Pie
The above specs showcase a lot of promise, and surely even the most demanding mobile games will run smoothly as butter on this thing. The best part? It’s coming to Southeast Asia, including the Philippines.
