Xiaomi Black Shark 3 Pro

Mobile gaming has come a long way since the days of Temple Run and Candy Crush, and as of today we can play visually stunning games like Call Of Duty and PUBG on our phones. A big reason for this is the way technology and hardware have evolved, to the point that our smartphones can easily handle graphics-intensive tasks and heavy computing. And now that we have excellent games, we also have devices like the ASUS ROG series and Xiaomi’s Black Shark series that cater heavily to people who enjoy mobile gaming. The latest device from Xiaomi’s gaming range is the Black Shark 3 Pro which is packed with impressive specs head to toe. This new smartphone comes with a 7.1-inch AMOLED display offering a resolution of 1440 x 3120 pixels and is HDR10+ certified. The phone packs 8GB of RAM and 256GB of onboard storage and runs Android 10 with a very light custom ROM on top. The phone is equipped with the best chipset Qualcomm has to offer to Android phones: the Snapdragon 865. The chipset features the Adreno 650 GPU on board to tackle the graphics load of games and other visually-taxing apps. The phone features a 64MP + 13MP + 5MP triple-camera setup on the back and a 20MP selfie camera on the front. As usual, the battery backup is impressive, as the Black Shark 3 Pro features a large 5000mAh cell that supports 65W fast charging under the hood. Xiaomi mobile phones include the Redmi Note 9 Pro, the Xiaomi Mi 10, and the Redmi Note 9 Pro Max.
