The Xiaomi subsidiary Black Shark has unveiled its latest gaming smartphones last Tuesday – Black Shark 3 and Black Shark 3 Pro. As you might expect, it didn’t take long before they became extremely popular and according to the latest information, Black Shark 3 series reservations have exceeded 5 million units in just 48 hours!
According to a poster published on the Chinese social network Weibo, both smartphones managed to reach more than 5 million reservations in just 48 hours. It is important to emphasize that they are “reservations” that do not require any kind of official commitment or advance payment.
Still, 5 million reservations remain an impressive achievement. Certainly, the first sales session will last for a short while, as with previous models.
