Last month, some specs for the Black Shark 5 series were leaked. We questioned the leak then, as it indicated that the new flagship series might not be much of an upgrade. However, it turns out that these details could be rather inaccurate.
According to Digital Chat Station, the Black Shark 5 won't even be an upgrade as it would use a Snapdragon 870 chipset. It would also have up to 12GB of RAM and 256GB of storage. However, the Black Shark 5 Pro would come with the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chipset. Moreover, it would have 16GB of RAM at maximum, as well as 512GB of storage. The source also mentioned a 'dual-core' 100W fast charging feature.
Black Shark 5 Pro gets a 108MP main camera
On the other hand, it looks like the Black Shark 5 series would have improved cameras compared to the previous generation. Based on info from TENAA, the Black Shark 5 (PAR-A0) would have a 64MP main camera, while the Black Shark 5 Pro (KTUS-A0) packs a 108MP main camera. For your info, their predecessors featured 48MP and 64MP main cameras, respectively.
The way I see it, the Black Shark 5 series isn't focused on improving the CPU/GPU performance. Instead, the company seems to be aiming to improve the features (like the camera). Black Shark could be launching this in the next few weeks, so stay tuned to TechNave for more updates.
