Meet DC Dimming 2.0

Our Verdict

Once again, unlike ROG Gaming Phone 2, Black Shark has proven that a minor smartphone release doesn’t need to have only better performance. Comparing with the previous generation, the performance has been improved to make it the world’s most powerful phone, along with a completely new X design, better touch response, UFS 3.0 storage, 12GB RAM, DC dimming 2.0, upgraded pressure touch, and more.

There’s no way this phone is a minor upgrade of the previous generation, but a completely new Gaming Flagship.

  • 12+128GB version is priced at 2,999 yuan ($435 USD)
