Xiaomi Black Shark 5 and Black Shark 5 Pro are gaming phones
The latest information concerns their specifications, which are published on the website of the Chinese regulatory agency TENAA. The Black Shark 5 (model number PAR-A0) is equipped with a 6.7-inch Full HD + AMOLED screen with a refresh rate of 144 Hz and a fingerprint reader on the screen.
When it comes to the processor, a 3.2 GHz CPU is listed, which is probably the Snapdragon 870 processor, paired with 8/12 GB of RAM and 128/256 GB of ROM. The main camera is 64 MP, the front (selfie) camera is 13 MP. The battery capacity is 4,650 mAh with support for fast charging of 120 W.
The dimensions of the phone are 163.83 × 76.25 × 10.37 mm and the phone weighs 223 grams. Black Shark 5 will likely be available in Dark Universe Black, Dawn White, White, and Exploration Gray colors.
The Black Shark 5 Pro (model number KTUS-A0) will also be equipped with a 6.7-inch AMOLED Full HD + screen with a refresh rate of 144 Hz and a fingerprint reader on the screen. But the difference should be seen in the presence of a 3.0 GHz CPU, considered to be the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processor, paired with supposedly 8/12/16 GB of RAM and 256/512 GB of ROM. Also, the 108 MP main camera instead of 64 MP and the front camera remains 13 MP. The battery capacity is also 4650 mAh with support for fast charging of 120 W. The dimensions of the Black Shark 5 Pro are very similar to the dimensions of the Black Shark 5 phone (163.86 x 76.53 x 9.8 mm and weighs 226 grams).
Another thing to discover is the price, the exact look, and the release date. The Xiaomi Black Shark 5 series is expected to unveil in March, especially considering the Black Shark 4 series was unveiled in March last year.
