Just a couple of days after the Black Shark 3 was officially confirmed to launch on March 3, a prototype of the device has shown up on the AnTuTu benchmark, scoring a whopping 620,952 points. The score is believed to be the highest-ever on the platform, breaking the record thus far held by the Realme X50 Pro, which notched up a score of 605,327. As is the case with AnTuTu listings, it doesn’t give us any more details on the device itself, but we’ll hopefully get more info in the days ahead.
With the launch of the Black Shark 3 on the horizon, a steady stream of leaks over the past few weeks have revealed quite a bit about the upcoming device. According to a report last month, the device will ship with a 120Hz 2K panel and, according to tipsters on Chinese micro-blogging site, Weibo, it will also offer users the option to manually switch between 60Hz, 90Hz and 120Hz refresh rates. The handset will also apparently have an option to lower the display resolution from 2K to 1080p as a possible battery-saving feature.
Other rumors about the Black Shark 3 suggest that the device will ship with up to 16GB of RAM and a 5,000mAh battery with 65W fast charging that would be able to juice-up the battery within just 38 minutes. The device is also expected to be powered by Qualcomm’s latest premium processor, the Snapdragon 865, which was officially announced by the US chip giant last December. The rest of the tech specs remain under wraps for now, but we hope to get more info in the days leading up to the launch.
