Xiaomi has just hit the market with its Black Shark 4 Series gaming smartphones. The Black Shark 3 series was popular already so it is safe to say that this new phone has quite a lot to offer to gamers. The series includes two gaming beasts- Black Shark 4 and Black shark Pro. The features are mostly the same as in Black Shark 4 apart from the processor, camera, and memory. In this post, we will look upon the specs, availability, and expected price of the Black Shark 4 Pro in Nepal.

Black Shark 4 Pro Overview

Display and Design

Like Black shark 4 it is also one of the most responsive smartphones with the highest 144Hz refresh rate and a touch sampling rate of up to 720Hz. The touch delay is reduced to 8.3ms for a smoother and responsive gaming experience. It offers a huge 6.67 inches Super AMOLED panel with a resolution of 1080 x 2400 pixels. The display delivers HDR10+ content with an adjustable display of up to 1300 nits(peak) for better visual clarity. Also, it comes with Always-on display features, SGS eye care certification, and MEMC dynamic motion.

Design-wise the device has gone through many changes especially in terms of the camera module. The Black Shark 3 series sports a triangular camera bump which is replaced by the horizontally elongated diamond-shaped module in this series. It sports a magnetic Pop-up physical trigger on the side of the handset for tactile control during gaming. Also, the fingerprint scanner is integrated with the power button on the side of the phone. The front side sports a punch-hole cutout flaunting its selfie shooter. Color options available in this phone are Black, Dark Blue, and Silver

Performance and Memory

The processor is upgraded in the Pro version as it packs with the latest 5nm Snapdragon 888 5G chipset. It is backed up by the Adreno 660 GPU that handles graphics in this device. Black Shark 4 Pro is packed powerful with Qualcomm’s flagship processor and GPU- both the SoC and GPU’s processing speeds are boosted as compared with its predecessor, Snapdragon 870 5G and Adreno 650. There is also an Upgraded “Sandwich” Liquid cooling system to manage overheating issues during heavy gaming. The phone will ship with Joy UI 12.5 that is based on Android 11.

Camera

There is an upgrade in the camera as well, the device flaunts a triple-camera array at the back where you get a 64MP primary camera, an 8MP ultra-wide angle camera, a 5MP macro camera lens. See the world through the 64MP triple camera without missing minute details. However, the 20MP front shooter that supports 1080p video at 30fps stays the same in Black Shark Pro.

The rear camera set-up also allows decent-quality video recording. It can record a stunning 4k video up to 60fps, 1080p video up to 240fps, and 720p video at 960fps with high detail.
