At the helm, it is equipped with 4nm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 with next-gen Adreno GPU. It comes with up to 16GB RAM and up to 512GB storage. However, it doesn't end with just that as Black Shark added an interesting take on its Storage and RAM.

The storage is equally split between an NVMe SSD and the standard UFS 3.1 file system. As an example, it could go with 256+256 for the 512GB model. Additionally, the brand was able to significantly improve the read and write performance of the phone through the DM Cache technology. Also, for situations when even quicker storage is necessary, the LPDDR5 RAM can also be used to form a RAM disk.

On the other hand, its battery has a 4,650mAh capacity with a superfast 120W power adaptor. Based on the brand's claim it reaches 100 percent within 15 minutes only. However, there is a temperature management mode that is gentler on the battery and reduces the charging time to 24 minutes. The phone also has a battery bypass capability for gaming while using external power.

It has a triple camera system, it is using 108MP main followed by a 13MP ultra-wide-angle and a 5MP macro shooter.

Other features mentioned are magnetic shoulder buttons that pop up on the corners of the phone and use a gaming-grade microswitch. There are also two symmetrical speakers with 1.5cc cavities, an X-axis linear motor for enhanced feedback, and four microphones on the phone's four corners to ensure that your voice is always clearly picked up.
