So What’s The Difference?

Well, apart from the bump in specs, we still see Snapdragon 870 chipset still part of the series, just like on the Black Shark 4. It’s not a bad chipset, but our speculation is that it’s to keep costs low and factor in more favorable improvements.

We also see a change in design language, from finish to camera module. Replacing the slit trench style module is the more mainstream clustered design, which might be a subtle hint that there are now bigger cameras in there that’ll take nice shots. Yes, even as a gaming phone.

We also look forward to a new Shark Chan, based on the feature images above!

Is it coming to Malaysia?

Well, we would say so, as we have some confirmation that if and when the Black Shark 5 series arrives in Malaysia, it would be complete with GMS and 4G/5G band compatibility.


The Black Shark 5 Pro & Black Shark 5 will be officially available from 8th June 2022
