In the world of e-sports, where there are many different game genres, there are also many e-sports tournaments for smartphone game titles.
Unlike a decade ago, today's smartphone games have beautiful graphics and excellent gameplay that make it hard to believe that they are smartphone games, but they are also very demanding and require high specifications for the smartphone itself to play comfortably.
This is why gaming smartphones are attracting attention, not only for their high specs and beautiful screens, but also for their design and design, which are specialized for gaming.
Many manufacturers are now releasing gaming smartphones, and one of the pioneers is Black Shark.
The latest model of "Black Shark", the 5G-enabled "Black Shark 3", is now officially available in Japan!
Symmetrical design for maximum operability
Generally, due to the position of the camera and the design, the center of gravity of a smartphone tends to be biased to one side or the other, whether the phone is held vertically or horizontally.
However, the "Black Shark 3" has a symmetrical design that optimizes the balance when held in the hand.
The back of the device is smoothly curved, and the camera and magnetic charger port are slightly raised to improve grip.
When it comes to gaming smartphones, we tend to focus only on performance, but we are amazed that even the design has been specialized for gaming!
Strong body and screen
The body of the Black Shark 3 is made of metal and glass, giving it a strong, glossy finish.
The back lighting effects are customizable so you can express your individuality.
The display is made of strong Corning Gorilla Glass 6.
It is twice as resistant to drops as the Gorilla Glass 5 used in the Black Shark 2, so even if you slip and drop it in the heat of gaming, you won't have to worry about it cracking in the slightest.
World's Highest Specifications to Date
The Black Shark 3 features a Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 SoC , the core of the device's performance, with UFS 3.0 ROM and LPDDR4X RAM for the Japanese model.
These specs are capable of high-speed data transfer and data processing, so it can comfortably handle not only games but also streaming video and music.
It is also equipped with a 5th generation AI engine to take full advantage of >5G networks.
Revolutionary Cooling Technology
Even high-performance smartphones inevitably generate heat under load.
The Black Shark 3 is equipped with revolutionary "sandwich" cooling technology that efficiently dissipates heat!
Two long liquid cooling pipes are placed between the board from both sides to directly contact the SoC, Wi-Fi chipset, 5G modem, charging circuits, and other heat-generating components, and to spread the heat from both sides.
The "sandwich" structure improves the cooling effect by approximately 150% compared to a single liquid cooling pipe.
5G + Wi-Fi 6 high speed communication
Black Shark 3 is compatible with NSA networks and the next-generation 5G data communication standard. It also supports the latest Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax) standard, which is fast, stable, and allows for comfortable, lag-free gameplay.
Dual "X" antennas, with the built-in antennas arranged in an X shape, ensure a stable connection even when the "Black Shark 3" is held horizontally.
World's Fastest Response Time
The touch panel has the world's fastest touch report rate (maximum number of touches per second) at 270 Hz and touch latency (communication delay time) at 24 ms.
In the world of e-sports, where the slightest difference in response can make the difference between victory and defeat, the "Black Shark 3" will allow you to play at a higher level.
Smooth and beautiful images
The Black Shark 3 boasts a 90Hz screen refresh rate, ensuring smooth, crisp images no matter how fast the game screen is moving.
MEMC technology, which incorporates an independent image chipset, boosts low refresh rates such as 25Hz to as high as 90Hz, so you can enjoy any image in high quality.
Touch Sensor for Precise Operation
Equipped with the powerful and advanced Master Touch 3.0.
Two pressure-sensitive sensors can be placed on the screen, allowing you to perform four actions with two fingers.
I can precisely control the edge of the screen, so I can play more precisely than ever before.
Capture the moment with the high-performance triple camera
The camera section has a triple camera setup with a 64-megapixel super clear camera, a 13-megapixel wide-angle camera, and a 5-megapixel depth sensor camera.
A Super Night mode is included for clear, vivid shots even at night when light is low, so you can capture vivid photos anytime, anywhere.
6.67-inch AMOLED display
The display features a 6.67" AMOLED display with 1080 x 2400 FHD+ resolution.
The display boasts the world's highest class Delta E (color difference) of less than 1.0 and JNCD of less than 0.55, enabling accurate color reproduction at a level imperceptible to the human eye.
The TrueView display automatically adjusts to the optimal color tone and brightness according to the surrounding environment, making it easy to see in any environment. True Hardware DC dimming reduces screen flicker and eye strain at low brightness.
It is also equipped with a low-blue light function that reduces blue light, so you can use it for long periods of time.
Long battery life with high-capacity battery
The Black Shark 3 is equipped with a high-capacity 4720mAh battery.
The world's first dual battery system with series charging and parallel discharge is adopted. Series charging enables ultra-fast 65W overcharge, while parallel discharge ensures longer and more stable battery life.
A dedicated charging chipset allows the dual battery system to be maximized, enabling 50% charging in 12 minutes and 100% charging in 38 minutes.
Charging terminal that does not interfere with play
Even with a high-capacity battery, there are often situations where you play games while charging.
In such situations, the location of the charging terminal can interfere with game play.
However, Black Shark 3 can be charged from the magnetic terminal on the back of the device by using a magnetic attachment (sold separately)!
This means that you can play as usual while charging, since it does not interfere with operations.
Moreover, it is compatible with 18W high-speed charging, so you don't have to worry about not being able to keep up with charging.
This attachment is scheduled to go on sale in October 2020, so you'll just have to hold off your desire to use it right away and wait a little longer!
Sound is one of the most important elements of a game.
The Black Shark 3 is equipped with two stereo speakers, one on the top and one on the bottom, both facing the player.
Some smartphones can block the speakers when held horizontally, which can obstruct the sound, but with "Black Shark 3" you can concentrate on your game without having to worry about blocking the speakers.
Fingerprint recognition built into the display
In addition to facial recognition, the Black Shark 3 is equipped with a fingerprint sensor built into the display.
Many people these days go out wearing a mask, so they cannot use facial recognition and have to enter their passcode every time they leave the house.
With "Black Shark 3," you can use face recognition at home and fingerprint recognition outside for both convenience and security!
Equipped with JoyUI 11, a unique UI specialized for gaming
Based on Android 10, the Black Shark 3 is equipped with JOYUI 11, a unique UI that provides a professional gaming environment.
The " Shark Space 3.0" gaming mode can be activated by flipping a switch on the side panel.
The "Shark Space 3.0" includes display settings such as performance and refresh rate, touch settings such as touch sensitivity and accuracy, audio settings for game sound equalization, network settings for communication environment, rear illumination settings, and more. 3.0" can be customized to the smallest detail for a variety of gaming features.
Shark Time" allows you to call up the launcher during a game, record the game screen, set ringtones, network settings, adjust the brightness and sound volume of the diplay, launch the browser during a game, and much more. You can even launch the plaza while playing a game.
