The 6+128GB version is priced at 3199 yuan ($476), the 8+128GB is available at 3499 yuan (the first two are only black, $521), the 8+256GB is at 3799 yuan ($566), and the 12+256GB is at 4199 yuan ($625).
In terms of design, the Black Shark 2 has a matte metal and glass material on the back, and a three-dimensional ergonomic ‘X’ look. At the same time, it continues using the back colorful breathing light and double waistline light belt.
On the front, it sports a 6.39-inch symmetrical non-shaped full-screen screen with 2.15mm left and right borders and 6.76mm upper and lower borders. According to the official announcement, the width of the border also enables the speaker to be placed on the front.
In terms of hardware, the Black Shark 2 sports a Snapdragon 855 chip, supplemented by liquid cooling 3.0 technology. The Samsung AMOLED screen has a 240Hz touch report rate (response delay is 43.5 milliseconds minimum), full DC dimming does not hurt eyes (especially low brightness), four-channel light source sensor, AI shock, a 4000mAh battery (1.6 times longer life), which supports a 27W high voltage fast charge.
Other features of the Black Shark 2 include a light-sensitive screen fingerprint recognition, a rear 48MP + 12MP AI dual-camera, supporting 10x zoom (2x optical zoom), and a front 20MP selfie shooter.
As we are dealing with a gaming smartphone, it’s reasonable to pay much attention to the cooling. Our protagonist is equipped with a tower-wide six-layer cooling system with oversized liquid cooling components. The whole system includes double-drive liquid-cooled components, large-size liquid-cooled plates, high-efficiency heat-conducting copper plates, and direct-contact liquid cooling. Patented, liquid-cooled tube assembly control power supply. A series of liquid-cooled black technology will increase the heat-dissipation area by 5 times, and the heat-dissipation efficiency of the non-direct-touch design will be increased by 20 times.
Plus, there are 4G and Wi-Fi side antennas, front stereo dual speakers, game-specific mic, and a dual half-screen pressure Magic Press sensing control, supporting 7-speed sensitivity adjustment.
Due to the new host mode, console mode, and anchor mode, the Black Shark 2 also brings dual-wing handles, handle brackets, Type-C/HDMI patch cords, and dual rail protection shells.
This year’s Black Shark 2 has three colors, namely dark night, fantasy blue, and frozen silver.
The Black Shark 2 will be open for pre-sale at 22:00 tonight and will be sold on March 22.
