Xiaomi’s sub-brand, Black Shark, has unleashed its new gaming smartphones with tons of cool gaming-centric features. The phones are intended for China first and will later be made available to the global market, as per the company’s strategies of the past.

The vanilla version employs a smaller 6.67-inch screen and lower FHD+ resolution, lacks the pop-up triggers, and offers a smaller 4,720 mAh battery. Another difference is in the storage variants – 8GB/128GB, 12GB/128GB and 12GB/256GB. The rest is pretty much the same.

In fact, from a design standpoint, both phones are identical – metal and glass have been used for the build, there are no holes or cutouts on the display on the front and, an improved sandwich-like cooling solution has been implemented with double the heat pipes compared to the previous generation. It’s also cool that unlike the Black Shark 2 and 2 Pro, the 3 and the 3 Pro have 3.5mm audio jacks.

The vanilla model comes in three colors – Lightning Black, Armor Gray, and Star Silver, while the Pro is offered only in Phantom Black and Armor Gray.
