The Black Shark 2 Pro for the Southeast Asian market

It's the direct upgrade of the Black Shark 2 that was announced in China last March.

Based on its specs, Black Shark 2 Pro is a beastly gaming phone. It still comes with the X-style antenna design for better signal reception, RGB logo at the back, and a liquid cooling 3.0 technology.

Black Shark claims that it uses a liquid-cooled plate and tube. It is designed to reduce the temperature of the CPU core by up to 14 degrees Celsius, 2 percent better than the 12 percent last year.

To recall, the company also managed to reduce the touch latency down to 34.7ms versus 43.5ms of Black Shark 2.

It also has a massive 12GB RAM and 128GB or 256GB UFS 3.0 super-fast storage. For the battery, it has a 4,000mAh battery with a 27W fast charger.

At the back, there's a 48MP f/1.75 main sensor paired with a 12MP f/2.2 secondary camera. For selfies, it has a 20MP f/2.0 front-facing camera. The Camera app features the usual Photo and Video modes along with a Super Night Mode.

Black Shark 2 Pro runs with a near-stock Android 9.0 Pie OS with Shark Space. There is a Black Shark controller as well.

The phone is available shadow black, iceberg grey, and gulf blue colors.
