On April 13th, Black Shark Technology released their first product, the Black Shark Gaming smartphone. Black Shark Technology is a Chinese Gaming company in which Xiaomi have invested and it will presumably form part of the Mi ecosystem.
If we Just look at the front of the device, the black shark gaming Smartphone doesn’t seem to look like a ” Gaming Device” The simple black panel, front fingerprint scanner it seems to look like a regular smartphone.
Screen specs are as follows: the Black Shark gaming phone uses a 5.99-inch LCD screen and supports the DCI-P3 color gamut, but its refresh rate is still just 60Hz, and it does not use 120Hz high refresh rate like the previous Razer Phone.
The fluidity of Games is dependent on an independent image processing chip that can enhance the picture quality and support MEMC motion compensation (this feature is more common in TV sets).
In addition, It has a microphone at the front of the handset in order to facilitate the call during the game.

If you have seen Razer Phone which is Square-shaped the Black Shark gaming phone is more rounded and is more grippy.
Snapdragon 845 + Liquid Cooling
However, a good SoC is just a foundation. Due to the high heat generated by high-performance SoCs, the performance of mobile phones is often unable to exert their full potential. In order to achieve better performance, a more powerful heat dissipation system is needed. In the black shark gaming, mobile phone, the “multi-stage direct contact integrated liquid cooling system” developed by the company is used.
According to Black Shark, after using this cooling system, the CPU’s cooling efficiency can be increased by 20 times and the core temperature can be reduced by 8 degrees Celsius.
In addition to the Snapdragon 845, another highlight of the Black Shark game is battery life.
The black shark gaming smartphone has a battery capacity of 4,000 mAh and supports 18 W fast charging, while the 4000 mAh has made the black shark gaming phone the largest cell capacity in the current Snapdragon 845 Smartphone.
Bluetooth game controller

The black shark’s handle uses a Bluetooth connection. The handle has built-in directional keys and additional physical design keys. The built-in battery is 340 mAh and has a battery life of 30 hours.
However, in order to install this handle, you need to first install the enclosed protective case on the black shark mobile phone. Directly placing the phone on the handle will cause it to fail to fit snugly.
