Flipkart has been teasing the launch of Black Shark 2 in India for some weeks, and now it has been launched here officially. The BIS certification gave a hint that Black Shark 2 is soon going to be hit the Indian Market. Today finally Black Shark has unveiled their first phone here in India. The phone is loaded with a ton of specs and is decently priced. Some other brand’s device wasn’t priced decently and it was not a huge success.
Black Shark 2 spots a 6.39-inch OLED display with an in-display fingerprint sensor which is made by Samsung complete with a pressure-sensitive system which enables users to map the buttons located on the corners of the screen. It has a refresh rate of 60Hz instead of 90Hz seen on other gaming smartphones, but has a touch sensitivity refresh of 240Hz!
Users can trigger them by pressing harder on that part of the screen. Well they have optimized the screen for better color accuracy, decreasing screen flicker at low brightness, and lowering touch latency to 43.5ms.
The phone spots the flagship Snapdragon 855 processor coupled with 6GB RAM + 128GB internal storage for the base variant and 12GB RAM with 256GB storage for the top variant. The phone also sports Liquid Cool 3.0 liquid-cooling technology and a vapour chamber cooling system that will keep the device from overheating during gaming sessions
It doesn’t compromise on the cameras as well. The rear has a primary 48MP Samsung GM1 sensor with f/1.75 lens and a 12MP secondary lens with an aperture value of f2.2. It has features like HDR, low-light mode, portrait mode, and 4K video recording at 30FPS. To the front it has a 20MP massive camera with f2.0 value for clicking awesome shoots.
The device is packed by a 4000 mAh battery which supports upto 27W fast charging. The company claims that the device can be charged upto 60% in 30 minutes. Talking about microphone which is an important factor for gaming phone, it has triple microphone setup and as expected a stereo speaker system. Packing all these, the device weighs 205 grams. The device still uses UFS 2.1 instead UFS 3.0 used on Galaxy Fold and OnePlus 7 Pro.
The Black Shark 2 looks rugged and comes with RGB lightstrip on the edges which is an essential factor for a gaming phone. It has a 3D touch like feature lifted straight from the Apple iPhone. The device is priced at ₹ 39,999 for 6GB RAM along with 128GB storage and ₹ 49,999 for 12GB variant with 256GB of storage.
