Black Shark is one of the best projects financed by Xiaomi. It designs only gaming smartphones and accessories. Thus, this company is competing with such brands and companies as the ASUS ROG series, Nubia’s Red Magic series, Razer brand products, etc. Making gaming products is not easy. They require better hardware, more efficient cooling, and muscular design. But Black Shark products could do this quite successfully, finding their place in the market. However, to boost sales, any company needs to bring new products from time to time. But there is another approach – they can bring the modified, customized, or just larger storage variant of the existing products. Today, on September 7, the Black Shark 3S 16GB + 512GB top-of-the-line version went on sale at Xiaomi Mall. It came at a price of 4799 yuan ($702).
However, the initial pricing was the following: CNY3999 ($573) for the 12/128GB, CNY4299 ($616) for 12/256GB, and CNY4799 ($687) for 12/512GB storage variants.
