Black Shark launched the Black Shark 3S in the second half of 2020. The first quarter of the year saw the arrival of two phones named Black Shark 3 and Black Shark 3 Pro. Hence, the company is expected to announce new Black Shark smartphones in Q1 this year. Today, Black Shark Technology CEO Luo Yuzhou hinted through a Weibo post that the next generation Black Shark gaming phones will offer stupendous performance.
It can be said based on Yuzhou’s Weibo post that the new Black Shark phones will be truly invincible in terms of performance. Before Qualcomm announced the Snapdragon 888 chipset, Yuzhou had revealed that the said chipset will be fueling the upcoming Black Shark phone.
The moniker of the next Black Shark series is under wraps. Some of the Asian companies are skipping the number ‘4’ in the names of its devices as it is considered as a bad omen. Hence, it remains to be seen whether the next phone from the brand will arrive in the market as Black Shark 4 or Black Shark 5.
Like last year, the Black Shark 4 series may include a standard model and a Pro variant with advanced features. Flagship phones are launching earlier than they did in 2020. While the Black Shark 4 series are expected to launch in March, the company may launch it earlier in February. Since nothing is confirmed on the upcoming Black Shark models, it is advisable to wait for further reports to know more.
The Black Shark 3S that debuted in July last year came with specs like 6.67-inch AMOLED display, Snapdragon 865, LPPDR5 RAM, UFS 3.1 storage, and a 4,729-mAh battery. For photography, it featured a 20-megapixel front camera and a 64-megapixel + 13-megapixel + 5-megapixel triple camera system.
