Some time ago, Black Shark announced a partnership with gaming giant Tencent for a special edition gaming phone. It also includes software optimizations for future Black Shark devices. The official Weibo post for the Shark 3 event was posted through a device dubbed Tencent Black Shark 3 which all but confirms we’ll see the first product from the cooperation between the two companies at the big event on March 3.
Apart from the special edition smartphone, we are very curious to see the specific enhancements made by the two companies.
