Before getting to the gaming performance of the phone, We will discuss about its design and display. Black Shark 3 sports a 6.67-inches display with an FHD+ resolution of 1080 x 2400 pixels. The colors and contrast are what you could expect from an AMOLED panel. That being said, it still can’t match the quality of the ones on OnePlus 8T and Samsung Galaxy S20+, which are its closest competitors (in terms of price). The Black Shark 3 Price in Nepal is Rs 89,490 for (12/256)GB Varient.
Black Shark 3’s display has a 90Hz refresh rate and a touch sampling rate of 270Hz. In case you didn’t know, a touch sampling rate (measured in Hz) refers to the number of times the display scans for an input. A higher sampling rate means your touch input gets registered much quicker and without any lag.
- Octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 SoC (7nm+)
- 8GB LPDDR4x / 12GB LPDDR5 RAM with 128/256GB UFS 3.0 storage (fixed)
- “Sandwich” Liquid Cooling System
It is powered by Snapdragon 865 and comes with up to 12GB of DDR5 RAM paired with 256GB of UFS 3.0 internal storage. Talking about the games, 90Hz optimized titles such as PUBG Mobile, Mortal Kombat, and VainGlory ran without any lags and shutters. One can also play PUBG in 90fps (in Smooth graphics).
The highest setting achievable here is Ultra HD graphics and Ultra Frame rate where you can get a stable 35 to 40fps. Unfortunately, Fortnite is not optimized for 90fps gameplay yet, and the setting doesn’t allow users to go beyond 30fps.
Let’s talk about the cameras now. The triple camera setup on the back consists of a 64MP primary camera, a 13MP ultra-wide lens, and a 5MP depth sensor. On the front, there is a 20MP selfie camera.
In terms of videos, Black Shark 3 can record 4K footages at up to 60fps. However, the image stabilization works only while recording 1080P videos at 30fps. Thus, if you are not equipped with a gimbal, it is better to stick to 1080p recording. Moving on, the selfie camera can record 1080P videos at 30fps and it doesn’t support any stabilization. In addition, you can also record SlowMo videos at 720P using the rear camera.
- 4720mAh (dual-cell) battery with 65W Hyper Charge
The battery is another important aspect of a gaming phone. Black Shark 3 is equipped with a decent battery of 4720mAh capacity.
