Key Features of the Black Shark 5 Pro
Enhanced speakers, improved pop-up gaming triggers, a new flagship processor, faster memory and storage are just a few of the new features that have been added to the Black Shark 5 series, which has now arrived on the global market after months of delays.
The Black Shark 5 Pro has a new and better cooling system, a bigger battery, and, most importantly, a new camera system that could make it the best gaming phone for taking photos and videos.
The Black Shark 5 pro is available in two colour options: Nebula White and Stella Black. The front and back are made of wear-resistant Gorilla Glass 5, and the camera module on the back is protected from damage by Corning glass.
The device has a larger 4,650 mAh battery, 120-watt fast charging, a Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processor, two vapor chambers on each side to keep the device cool, better LPDD5 RAM, and improved UFS 3.1 storage.
If you're interested in photography, the Black Shark 5 Pro features two cameras on board: an ultra-wide 13MP camera and a macro 5MP camera. The 108-megapixel ISOCELL HM2 main sensor, though, is the Black Shark 5 Pro's most impressive feature. In addition, there is a 2x and 5x digital zoom, which is sadly the maximum zoom, as well as a 5-megapixel macro camera that does an excellent job.
It also offers a 720p 30fps portrait video option to go along with the portrait photo. A 1080p/30fps macro video mode that looks nice and clear. Then there's 4K at 60fps, which looks incredible thanks to the main 108-megapixel ISOCELL HM2 sensor.
Magnetic pop-up shoulder triggers are another big gaming-centric feature on the phone's right side. They have a level 7 pressure resistance rating and can be used up to a million times. The trigger pressure is 160 g. A power button and a fingerprint sensor are located on the right side of the device.
The volume rocker on the left is non-split, and the Dual-SIM 5G Dual Standby is located at the bottom. It has a water-resistant seal but no expanded storage capacity.
The bottom of the phone includes a USB 2.0 Type-C connector, and the first of the phone's twin stereo speakers is located next to it, with the second being located on top. At the top of the screen is a tiny hole for the 16-megapixel selfie camera.
The phone features a 6.67-inch E4 OLED screen. It boasts a pixel density of 395 PPI, a colour gamut of 1 billion, and a maximum brightness of 1300 nits. Although you could select from 60, 90, or 144-hertz refresh rates, this is not an LTPO display.
The Black Shark 5 also has a touch sampling rate of 720 Hz, a touch delay of 8.3 ms, and a touch accuracy of 0.004, which is apparently the world's lowest for a smartphone.
That innovative cooling system on the Black Shark 5 Pro makes it a true gaming phone in every sense of the word. However, gaming is not the only thing that you can do with this device since it includes what is possibly the most outstanding camera system that has ever been seen on a device that is primarily designed for gaming.
The ultrawide and macro cameras do a good job, but the 108-megapixel ISOCELL HM2 main sensor is the real star of the show. It takes excellent photos and videos.
