Last week saw the arrival of three new Snapdragon 865+ mobile platform powered smartphones such as Lenovo Legion Duel, Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5G, ASUS ROG Phone 3. Tomorrow, Nubia will be announcing the SD865+ powered Red Magic 5S gaming phone. Recent reports have revealed that Xiaomi will also launch the Black Shark 3S. Today, the Chinese firm took to Weibo to confirm that it will be holding a launch event for the Black Shark 3S on July 31.
On July 22, Black Shark CEO Luo Yuzhou released a cryptic post on Weibo that hinted that the company could be soon launching a new gaming phone. Interestingly, Yuzhou had used the unannounced Black Shark 3S to publish the Weibo post. Hence, it appeared that the arrival of the Black Shark 3S could be drawing near.
The post released by the company today shows that the Black Shark 3S will be announced at 3 PM on July 31. It does not reveal anything on the specs of the device.
Earlier this year, Xiaomi had launched the Black Shark 3 and Black Shark 3 Pro gaming phones. The latter had arrived with a massive display of 7.1 inches, while the former featured a 6.67-inch display. The Black Shark 3S will be an updated version of the Black Shark 3 and its major highlight will be the inclusion of the Snapdragon 865+. It remains to be seen what other improvements will be made available on the Black Shark 3S.
It is speculated that the Black Shark 3S will have an AMOLED screen with support for higher refresh rate, stereo speakers, and support for 65W fast charging. Hopefully, the Chinese firm will release more information on the device before the launch.
