An aesthetic that is already familiar
The Black Shark Helo was the second mobile of the company and left behind the physical front button with which the first Black Shark lineage began. These and the later ones have undergone small aesthetic changes, although always maintaining that striking and back characteristic that we also see in the 2 Pro.
In fact, the new smartphone maintains lines of design very similar to Black Shark 2, with the "S" of the brand logo on that back with a central hump to improve grip. The cameras are still in a corner, being two lenses that do not have a unique protrusion as other manufacturers incorporate, but rather appear independently as in its predecessor.
The front also seems traced to the Black Shark 2, with a screen of the same diagonal. Although what stands out from this panel of 6.39 inches is the speed of 240 hertz touch report, which allows the synchronized action of ten fingers. The refresh rate remains at 60 hertz, thus falling below what the OnePlus 7 Pro screen and other mobile phones that have opted to improve this feature.
The company has explained that this refresh rate allows a tcitl response of 34.7 milliseconds and a precision of 0.3 millimeters, also having the DC Dimming 2.0 that we saw earlier to avoid panel flickering. Of course, the screen has a resolution FullHD + (2,340 x 1,080 pixels).
Betting on the most powerful processor and memory
One of the most interesting updates of this mobile is the one that is not in sight. The Black Shark 2 Pro integrates the Snapdragon 855+, an update of the Snapdragon 855 with greater power and graphic performance, but maintaining configuration and components.
As squires of this new brain there are 12 GB of RAM, the maximum we have seen in Android phones, and 256 GB of UFS 3.0 storage, the standard storage capable of reaching up to 2.4 Gbps of reading speed. All this is cooled thanks to a liquid cooling system and is fed with a battery of 4,000 milliamps / hour, with fast load support up to 27 watts.
As for the photographic part, on the one hand it is committed to one of the latest fashions in this area by integrating a 48 megapixel sensor in the main camera, with 13 megapixels being that of the secondary camera. On the other hand they stay there, without getting into the triple camera car, and opting for a 24 megapixel sensor for the front camera.
