The Xiaomi Black Shark 3 and 3 Pro are the new gaming smartphone that was recently released by Xiaomi’s sub-brand. The phone has lots of gaming-centric features. It will be available in China first before it will later extend to the global market, just like the company’s previous strategy. Read on to see the Black Shark 3 and Black Shark 3 Pro key features and prices.
Xiaomi Black Shark 3 Pro Features
The Pro version comes with a lot of extra features than the non-Pro version, and it also has a bigger screen. The Xiaomi Black Shark 3 Pro is built around a 7.1 inch QHD+ OLED panel running at 90Hz. It also comes with the world’s fastest 270Hz touch-sampling rate as well.
It has a Snapdragon 865 chipset which drives all those pixels, and it also supports 5G connectivity as well. Wi-Fi 6 support is also on the specs sheet of the Black Shark 3 Pro. The chipset is coupled with ether an 8GB or 12GB of RAM, but only the 12GB RAM version comes with the latest LPDDR5 memory.
The Xiaomi Black Shark 3 Pro comes with a triple camera at the back, which is made up of a 64MP main with f/1.8 aperture, a 13MP ultra wide-angle unit, and a 5MP depth sensor. The selfie camera is 20MP.
The Black Shark 3 Pro also comes with a massive 5000mAh battery and supports blazing-fast 65W charging. The company claims it can charge from 0 to 100% in just 38 minutes. And if you are in the middle of a game and wants to charge the device, you can snap a magnetic charger on the back of the phone that does not go quite as fast but 18W would do just fine during gaming session. After all, you will not have to deal with hanging cable sticking out from the USB-C port.
One of the advantages of this Pro version is the new pop-up triggers. The touch-sensitive air triggers from the previous version of the phone are replaced with physical pop-up buttons, and the manufacturer ensures at least 300,000 pop-ups without any issues.
