Black Shark 3 5G to come with a 5,000mAh battery that charges via 65W

Xiaomi is preparing a new iteration for its gaming smartphone series – Black Shark. That’s not a surprise, after all, gaming smartphones are increasingly popular nowadays, and Xiaomi can be considered as one of the brands that gave the initial kick in the segment. The company will unveil a new Black Shark 3 this year with 5G capabilities, Snapdragon 865, QHD resolution and 120Hz refresh rate display.

Today, the brand manager posted a poll on Weibo, asking which battery charging + capacity + cycles is the best for gaming devices. They effectively revealed the setup of the Black Shark 3. It will debut with a 5,000mAh battery that charges via 65W fast-charging that can make the battery from flat to 100% in just 38 minutes.

According to the report, it’s easy to guess the right choice since the three other are combos of existing smartphones. 55W fast charger for a 4,500mAh comes with the Huawei Mate X. The 65W + 4,000mAh is the Oppo Reno Ace. 55W + 4,440 mAh is the combo found in iQOO’s upcoming iQOO 3 5G. Moreover, all of these succumb to degradation after 600 cycles.

Back in November last year, a Xiaomi smartphone surfaced with a 66W charger codenamed MDY-11-EF. Moreover, a new listing from CCC reveals that a Black Shark phone will be compatible with the very same charger.

The Black Shark 3 will launch sometime this year and is rumored to include 16GB of LPDDR5 RAM.

    the last time they shot their feet using 4,000 battery and 60hz screen and NO mSD card and NO Phone Jack on mobile gaming device. hahahaha.. why not 6000mA like asus rog phone2 ? they have to consider that 5G suck more power than 4G chipset. if asus rog phone3 come out with 7000mA and new features, it will be better phone than this. and Xiaomi is notorious with their advertisement in the phone. I’d rather choose something without it. imaging playing games and an ad appeared on your screen. lol

    what are you talking about?
    I have been using Xiaomi and Hongmi phones since the Xiaomi 2. Never had advertisements popping up while playing nor while doing anything. Are you talking about a phone with 7A/h?????? to do what? To play PUBG or Fortnite on a mini screen? For that price, you can get yourself a gaming PC, and probably a console along with it. People really make me laugh with those gaming phones, to play crappy pay to win games, or battle royale games that look like PS2 graphics. Ridiculous. For 300€, you get a switch, download Fortnite, and go. save your money. Don’t buy ROG phones at crazy price, where the battery will die anyway within a year or two.
