Few months earlier Black Shark launched their fifth generation of gaming focused smartphones. The series consist of Black Shark 5 Pro, Black Shark 5 and Black Shark 5 RS devices.
The brand has officially confirmed that the devices will get their first outside China launch on June 8 in Malaysia. The official launch teaser can be seen on Black Shark Malaysia’ Facebook account. The launch event will start at 19:00 (MYT) and can be streamed on the brand’s official Facebook and TikTok pages.
However, Black Shark is yet to make an official announcement on the European release of these devices. Today we have some new information from our source, about Black Shark 5 Series storage and color options that will be available for Europe, along with sone renders. Let’s have a look at them!
Black Shark 5 Series renders, storage and color options:
In Europe, the company will launch only the Black Shark 5 and Black Shark 5 Pro. The Black Shark 5 RS will not debut there, and will remain exclusive to China for the time being.
In terms of memory options, the Black Shark 5 and Black Shark 5 Pro will feature 8GB RAM + 128GB ROM / 12GB RAM + 256GB ROM. The Black Shark 5 will be available in Black and Grey colours, while the Pro model will debut in Black and White colorways.
Black Shark 5 Series specs:
We can confirm that specs of the European models will remain identical to their Chinese models. Let’s have a look at their specifications.
At the front, both Black Shark 5 and Pro share the same display. The 6.67-inch sized Samsung E4 AMOLED panel supports FHD+ resolution, a 20:9 aspect ratio, 144Hz refresh rate, 720Hz touch sampling rate, and 1300 nits of max brightness with HDR10+ support.
The Black Shark 5 Pro is powered by the latest Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processor, while the non-pro model opts for an older Snapdragon 870 processor.
For optics, the devices feature a triple camera setup. The Pro version uses 108MP Samsung HM2 sensor, a 13MP Ultra Wide lens and an 5MP Tele Macro lens. Whereas the vanilla model features a 64MP primary setup with a 13MP and 2MP lens for Ultra Wide and Macro photography respectively. Both phones share a 16MP camera for selfies at the front.
The phones are powered by a 4650mAh battery that can be charged via a 120W adapter. The phones take about 15 minutes to charge from 0% to 100%. Both phones also have a unique charging feature, in which the adapter bypasses the battery and directly powers the phone, improving battery life and effectively dissipating heat during charging. The devices run on Android 12 OS with Joy UI 13 skin on top. The phones also support side-mounted fingerprint scanners and pop-up magnetic triggers located on the right edge.
