As expected, with the approaching of the presentation date on March 3, the rumors and official teasers about the Black Shark 3 increase. Even the CEO Lei Jun confirmed the presence of a Pro version, already spotted in a previous certification. And now the executive returns to talk about the superior model and the gaming experience offered by the new physical buttons.
Black Shark 3: the new teaser anticipates the presence of new buttons along the edge
According to what reported by the teaser above, the new gaming flagship will have two physical buttons along the edge, both with mechanical feedback. Confirmation also comes from Lei Jun himself, who said he was enthusiastic about this novelty. In addition, the executive confirmed the feature onboard the Black Shark 3 Pro. But we do not know whether the “base” model will also benefit from the same feature.
The new keys will be able to provide zero latency and super responsive feedback, vital details for fans of online multiplayer titles. In fact, it is a solution capable of offering better controls, especially useful in shooting games (such as PUBG or COD). It has not been confirmed, but the two buttons are likely to be programmable.
It is worth mentioning that the Black Shark 3 apparently will honor the company’s legacy of powerful phones. If there is any doubt about that, the AnTuTu benchmark score of the Shark 3 Pro will put such doubts to rest.
A screenshot of the total score of the gaming smartphone was shared by no other than Black Shark’s CEO on his official Weibo page. The device bears blackshark SHARK MBU-Ao and going by its GeekBeench appearance, it’s the high-end Black Shark 3 Pro 5G. It will launch alongside the vanilla Shark 3. The device scored 620,952 points which is undoubtedly the highest score so far by any smartphone on the platform. Before now, the iQOO 3 was reputed to have the highest score at 597,583 points. The ROG Phone 2 was a follower with its 507,051 points.
