Tencent Games is the world’s largest gaming company and with hits like PUBG: Mobile and Arena of Valor it’s certainly an established player in the world of mobile gaming. We’ve been hearing about the company’s ambitions to build its own gaming phone for a while now and now Tencent Games has announced its plans to work together with Black Shark on devices for both hardware and software optimizations.
This won’t be the first time Tencent collaborates with a smartphone manufacturer as we’ve already seen the Tencent Edition Asus ROG Phone ll back in July. The new deal with Black Shark will focus on cooperation in the field of gaming phones with the end goal of giving users an improved mobile gaming experience.
While there are no clear signs of the actual device which is expected, some rumors point that the upcoming Black Shark 3 could be the first product to benefit from the cooperation between the two companies. The Black Shark 3 is expected to come with a 120Hz QHD display, Snapdragon 865 chipset and up to 16GB RAM on the 5G version.
Black Shark 3 gets 120Hz display and QHD resolution (leaks)
The Black Shark brand already has four phones in its portfolio and it
looks like the fifth one is coming soon. Just three days ago we got our
first leak for the upcoming gaming phone which is rumored to come with a
whopping 16GB RAM and 5G connectivity.
Now, we get two more clues which concern the display of the next Black Shark – it will reportedly come with a QHD display and 120Hz refresh rate. Users will be able to set the refresh rate at 60, 90 and 120Hz while the display resolution can go between FHD and QHD. Apart from that, we don’t have much to work with. Given the Black Shark lineage, we can expect the gaming aesthetic with light green accents as well as top-notch components like the Snapdragon 865 and an efficient cooling system. The battery is also expected to come with a higher capacity to offset the increased consumption of the 120Hz screen and 5G modem.
