Black Shark released the Black Shark 5 series in March, which includes three smartphones – Black Shark5, Black Shark5 Pro, and Black Shark RS. These are currently only available in the Chinese market, but the lineup will start rolling out globally next month, starting in Malaysia.
Black Shark Malaysia announced on social media that the Black Shark5 and Black Shark5 Pro will be launched in Malaysia on June 8. But the Black Shark RS won’t be at the June 8 launch, and it’s unclear if the company will bring it to Malaysia later, or if it’s only available in China.
The Black Shark5 Standard Edition is equipped with the Snapdragon 870 SoC, while the Black Shark5 Pro Edition is equipped with the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chip. Both smartphones have a triple-camera system on the rear panel, the Black Shark5 is a 64MP main camera, 13MP ultra-wide, and 2MP macro lens combination, while the Black Shark 5 Pro has a 108MP main camera and a 13MP ultra-wide camera and 5MP telephoto macro camera combo.
