“Black Shark 3 is expected to come with 120Hz refresh rate, 16 LPDDR5 RAM, UFS 3.0 storage and triple rear cameras”
Black Shark 3 is scheduled to launch on March 3rd in China and is confirmed to ship with Snapdragon 865 SoC and also have 5G connectivity. The handset is likely to run JOY UI custom skin with a focus on gaming. Now, the Black Shark 3 is spotted on AnTuTu benchmark and scored a record 620,952 points, which is the newest highest score on the platform, surpassing iQOO 3’s AnTuTu score of 597,583. This potentially means the Black Shark 3 could be the most powerful Android phone yet. Earlier reports suggested the handset would pack a Quad HD+ display with 120Hz refresh rate, up to 16GB LPDDR5 RAM and UFS 3.0 storage. A 5,000mAh battery with 65W fast-charging is said to fuel the phone.
While it isn’t confirmed, the Black Shark 3 is expected to feature a triple camera setup at the back, presumably with a 48MP primary sensor, an ultra-wide-angle lens and a telephoto sensor. Unfortunately, not much is else is known about the flagship gaming phone at the moment, but since the launch is just a few days away from now, we don’t have to wait for much longer.
